The second Summer Sundays event was held on July 22, with 18 players entering the Bring a Friend competition. The aim of this day was to introduce potential new members to the sport, so those who brought non-members along to play were rewarded with half-price entry.
So as not to weary our newcomers, the competition was limited to three games, with an afternoon tea of home-made scones and mini muffins shoring the players up between games.
In another quirk, rather than the team who won the most games walking away with the grand prize, each team win was recorded and entered into a final prize draw, giving more teams the chance to claim victory. Prizes included cash, wine, chocolate and leather purses, produced by talented LPC member, Sarah.
The only team to win all three games – Jean-Pierre and Guillame – was drawn mid-way through the raffle-style prize giving, with the main cash prize going to Pedro and Christopher. It’s clearly not all about winning, though, as everyone walked away smiling after a sunny afternoon on the piste.
