The latest Madeira week began with a first round match in the Hunter Cup, writes Matt Marriott.
Once again, at this stage of things, there were too many names involved to report, but all will be updated during the season.
There have been men’s County games played out with some results in favour of Madeira men.
In Group A of the 4-wood singles Mick Powell is through to the quarter finals, and, in Group B, captain Richard Prince is due to play Bill Davis, also in the last eight.
In the County Pairs Group B, Ken Roberts and Mike Orchard have reached the quarter finals as have Colin Healy and John Flockhart. In Group A John Wherlock and Martin Eveleigh take on Robert Berry and Martin Langford.
Sunday saw the start of the first round in the Madeira Men’s Championship and, in due course, results will be announced as the season progresses.
Once again I only have one card from the Over 60,s from Madeira B who only managed to get two points off of Marina A, but it is still early days yet.
There was only one visiting team this week from just down the road at Babbacombe. They brought six rinks which, I am led to believe is their first visit to Madeira. The result being close with Madeira managing to win by one shot at119-118. We like to be kind to first timers at Madeira!
The highest scoring rink was skipped by Deidre Norman with Madeleine Marriott, Mike Ball and Geoff Furminger winning by eight shots at 25-17.The visitors did manage to have good wins on two rinks. We look forward to our return visit to them.
