The latest Madeira week got off to a superb start, writes Jude Latta.

In the ladies National Pairs Competition Sue Harriott and Nicky Fiddimore had a blinding game against Honiton players Carol Binmore and Yvonne Raynor resulting in a no-nonsense score of 27-9 to Madeira.

Their next round will be against another pair from Honiton and we hope the result will be as good again.

At times this week it seemed as if Madeira ladies would be playing Honiton in all the competitive leagues!

We met them on Thursday playing in the Foxlands Trophy and again on Saturday,

this time in the Yetton Trophy. They were good games, but Honiton had the beating of us and won both matches. As if that were not enough, Madeira ladies were also beaten by Plymouth in the Lane Trophy.

In a mixed friendly against Bovey Tracey we won two out of the three rinks. David Macaulay, Gordon Medlock, Mollie Cooper and Jill Perrin were top rink with a score 40-4, ensuring a comfortable win for Madeira of 83-44. The good fortune did not last and the ladies were not as successful in their friendly against DCLIBA, drawing on one rink, but losing the other two so that we lost overall 45-64.

But, we have a full list of matches for next week and we will do our best to win, but which we will most certainly enjoy.

Talking of enjoyment, on Saturday, November 7, (9am to 11.30am), there will be a Coffee Shop offering coffee, speciality teas, toasted tea cakes and delicious home-made cakes.

So, if you fancy a walk along the seafront with a coffee and a piece of cake (or even if you’d just like the chance to take a look at the club), do pop in. We’d love to see you.
