Colonel Hay One Hit

16 Dec 2019

Dear member,

Our last meeting of 2019 saw us at the Lansdowne Club earlier in the week for the Colonel Hay One Hit and Christmas dinner.  A number of last-minute withdrawals resulted in a small but perfectly formed pool of 5: Andrew Brannon, Lawrence Burr, Mariette Mason, David Partridge and myself.

Andrew and David shared 2 victories apiece but it was Lawrence who reigned supreme without dropping a fight.  On a personal note, the only thing I managed to hit was my opponents’ guards at the beginning of each fight!

We were then joined for dinner by Teddy Bourne, Fiona Brannon, Pat Casey, John Glasswell, Brian Hill, Steve Lennox, Howard West and David Worsfield.

 

In other news there are a couple of amendments to next season’s calendar. First, unfortunately the Hurlingham Club have informed us that they will not be holding their annual garden party which usually coincides with the Ranelagh Cup, therefore we have decided to move from our fixture from the Sunday to the Saturday - i.e. it will now take place on Saturday 27 June.

Finally, our venue is confirmed for the 2020 Annual General Meeting and dinner on Friday 1 May. We will be at the Naval Club - https://www.navalclub.co.uk/

That’s all from me for 2019.  I hope that whatever you’re up to you have a good festive break and wish you the very best for the New Year.

Al.
