Summer Sundays – Shotgun Doubles

Report from Giselle Whiteaker

Sunday June 17 saw the first of a set of three Sunday events being held to make the most of the summer months. 16 players entered the Shotgun Doubles and were randomly paired to determine who would take the piste.

After a round robin within two pools in the morning – and a morning tea of home-made scones – the battle lines were drawn for the barrage in the afternoon. The final saw a hard-fought battle between two formidable combinations – newcomer Hassan as shooter with Christine as pointer, and JC as shooter with Mark Barlow as pointer. It was a nail-biter, but JC and Mark emerged victorious claiming the cash prize, with another newcomer, Hakim, and Adrian Cowie winning their money back in the plate.

The next Summer Sundays event will be a “Bring a friend” competition on July 22. Details will be emailed out in the next few weeks.
