The smiling Men’s assassin – Bill Dredge

With the Men outnumbering the Girls 2:1 last Wednesday they were heavily backed into favouritism to win this pre-Christmas round of the Gender Challenge….. but the Ladies insisted that Quality was more important than Quantity!

Well, the Men, capably led by Bill Dredge (39 pts) proved them wrong (winning narrowly on countback from Laraine Calendar), and then supported by Bob Glenister, Gary Pollard and the ‘Go Kart Kid‘ Ivor Brayley who all returned fine scores of 37, This, together with winning the best average score gave the Men that much needed ‘kick up the backside’ for their form in the early rounds and has put them within reach of catching the Ladies over the next few weeks. Alan Pell was NTP and Ladies Captain, Jan just wanted to show what a good ‘Club’ Woman she was taking out the Club Award with good nature.
