Cumbria Cup. June 8th & 9th.

(June 08, 2013)

The Cumbria Cup

The Cumbria Cup has left the county and is on a holiday in Cheshire!  Rain was not needed to save the day for Cheshire on this gloriously hot and sunny weekend.  16 competitors met for the usual well managed and hosted weekend in The Crake Valley. 

In a first round upset Peter Moore from Nottingham beat Dave Nick with the other rounds going with handicap.  In round two Peter Moore continued his wining streak beating Peter Wardle +1 on time.  Other winners in the quarter finals were Lee Hartley, Tom Griffiths, and Brian Storey. 

By semi-final time 4 competitors were playing in bare feet and most were showing a quantity of bare flesh.  Tom Griffith took on Peter Moore and Brian Storey played Lee Hartley.  Both Tom and Brian were on cracking form and won their matches easily setting up a best of three final for the Sunday. 

An excellent and hearty meal for 20 followed on the Saturday night with a fiendish anagram quiz to entertain.  All were croquet related solutions with only one remaining un-solved by the end of the meal (Dave you will have to insert the coles one here).  and one causing much amusement (Insert the Cheshire one here – clue one of the words is in the first sentence of this report)  

Sunday dawned equally sunny with the first game of the final being won easily by Brian Storey +20.  The second game, however, entertained for hours with Brian coming out the eventual winner +3 giving him a 2 – 0 win and the Cumbria Cup. 

The plate was tied between Ray Lowe and Alan Pidcock and was settled by a shoot out at the peg which was won (EVENTUALLY) by Alan.  Well done to Dave Nick and the Crake Club for hosting a splendid event and well done to Brian Storey for his win.
