Great to see that we were able to play in-between the rainy days. 30 members took part. Warm welcome to Gaz Collins on his first WAGA.
RESULTS. Pink went to Carl McCann on 10 points and on countback. We know he will bounce back. Tom Garlick returned to take ‘Yellow’ with a very steady 25 points considering the weather conditions. 2nd with 22 points was Stuart Hamilton with a 3 H/C. Also on 22 points was last week’s winner Loz Lightbrown with an 8 H/C to take 3rd with Dave Norris (13 H/C) in a rich vein of form also on 22 points in 4th. Mark Hilder (26 H/C) shows his improvement in scoring 22 points but dipping out on countback.
* 2 SKINS. First week of the 2 skins saw the pot of €15 roll over with Jim Collin’s 2 on the 3rd cancelled out by Bill Fergusons 2 on the 9th. Reminder only 1 player can take the pot. No player or 2 plus players will see the pot rollover. If not won in 5 weeks the pot will go into WAGA funds. Please continue the marking of 2’s clearly on cards and mentioning to Chairman when handing in card. Week 2 next week.
LEAGUE TABLE. The Winter League table is enclosed (2 versions) and sees Peter Alderson retaining top spot with 270 points. With that previous Champion Stuart Hamilton in 2nd with 253 points but 2 games in hand. The League will run for 32 weeks with 20 scores being the qualifier for a ‘Top 9’ slot on finals day. Our ‘Finals Day’ will be the 23 May 18. The 3 Major WAGA trophies, NGE Shield, Bruce Kingston Shield and League Cup will be up for grabs.
Crapputter Cup. Those members who have not given their allegiance to either camp should review now and contact the relevant Captain for due selection consideration. Those who have already played in the Crapputter Cup are ‘Cup Tied’ !!

o Please continue to encourage new members to attend WAGA.
o Embrace the WAGA ethos and mix with other players as much as possible during the season. Please refrain from teeing off at too early a time pre the official 1300H allocated time. Please keep to 3 balls, No 4 balls please unless playing a club KO or joined by a late starter.
o Our better players are request to play with less talented players for encouragement and hopefully develop better skills and understanding of rules.
