News & Results 2019 – Week 16

NEWS & RESULTS – 2019 – Week 16 (5/8/19 to 11/8/19)

I’m very sorry, but I have had little time to write any reports week 16, but I will just mention the fact that it was quite a successful week – 6 games played and 4 wins!

Stowmarket League Presidents Day – Saturday 10th August 2019


Come rain, wind or whatever – This was going to happen! And by golly it did and what a great day we had.

Organised by our Keith Crabbe, it all started on time – 11am – with the usual welcome speeches and then on with the action.

There were 2 groups, 6 rinks and 4 rinks, alternating through the day, each having 4 sessions, each session consisting of 6 ends – totalling 24 ends of 3Woods. Each group played 2 sessions then a stop for lunch – and what a lunch? It was up to its usual high standards with 2 sittings – totalling 70 in all.

Thornham Magna had 3 sets playing – Laurie Crick, David Ewer & David Miller – Alan Roberts, Trish Emans & Colin Emans – Philip Cutting, Trish Cutting & Mel Hopkins – and they all did remarkably well! In fact, the Alan, Trish & Colin set were second best on the day, winning 3 games and drawing 1 – but they didn’t win their group!

The winners of the Presidents Cup and for the 3rd year running was the rink from Combs Ford

And the runners-up, the rink from Woodfield



After the raffle and a drink or so, Laurie cut his special cake, which went down well with a glass of bubbly – that may have been a glass or 2 for some??! A big thank you and congratulation to all those lovely members who worked so hard to make our day so enjoyable – well done!
