August's meeting (recap) 23-08-2015 Club news: Guisborough

Well, what a great night we had. We were joined by 8 members of Redcar 41 Club and were able to undertake an inter-club competition comprising 12 games with each club playing each game in pairs. The result was close, with Guisborough coming out triumphantly 7 : 5. Hopefully this is something that can be repeated and Peter Milburn is going to organise a trophy in time for the next inter-club challenge. Great food, fine ales and free quoits, can’t be bad.

Some of you will be aware that Peter Milburn has, for a number of years, been in possession of Redcar & Saltburn Table’s Chairman’s Chair, ever since the Tables closed down. It is planned that we will give this back via Redcar 41 Club at a forthcoming meeting of theirs; they normally meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month (a week later in September) at The Ship, Marske.

In attendance were me, Ian Cowie, Mike Fox, Tony Goodacre, Steve Hare, Steve Hewison, Alastair MacKenzie, John Middleton-Taylor, Alan Milburn, Peter Milburn, Rob Vincent-Jones, Eric Walker, Philip Wallwork, Robin Wilson plus Redcar Chairman Dave Atkinson and 7 of his merry men. The raffle was won by a Redcar member.
