With the weather being a bit chilly last week, the ladies still left in the Club Pairs Championship took to the green to battle with the wind and colder conditions.
Wednesday 31st May saw the top 16 go through their skills and Thursday 1st June the quarter finals was played. Results of this was Sue Davis and Laraine Mazurek defeating Jenny Northam and Pam Hoffmeier. While Jenny and Pam held a lead during the first half of the game, Sue and Laraine managed a couple of multiple scores to forge ahead and never looked back from here, going onto the Semi Final.
Di Stewart and Paula Body came out successful against Janet Campbell and Marion Salvia. Helen Dean paired up with Claire Kelly against Gina Pain and June Wall. This was a very close encounter, being 11 all going into the last end and Helen and Claire came out the victors here.
Robyn Twemlow and Phyllis Haywood did battle against Gail Gorman and Carolyn Olliffe and once again this was a very close game and spectators witnessed Carolyn move the jack to the back of the green and this gave them victory.
The semi final should see some closely contested games as the ladies go head to head in an endeavour to win a spot in the final. Unfortunately the semi was due to be played yesterday, Wednesday 7th June, but wet weather intervened here and now the semi will be held after the AGM on Thursday 8th June. Depending on who gets through to the final will decide when this will be played as Claire Kelly is entered in the Australian Open and will be away until 24th June. Should she and Helen Dean not win their semi today then the final will be played Friday 16th June.
