Sonoma WCC - Monday

[<<] [>>] by John Taylor
14th May 2002 (International)

Yet another beautiful day and a lot of croquet. Last game ended at 8:00 PM so this will be a short report as it is now 10:30 and I'm ready for bed.

As you can see from the first game results below John Evans had a great start to the day. However, he used all his luck in that game as the rest of his day was all downhill. After Fulford missed 7 roquets in a row we all decided John should go out and buy a lotto ticket as things kept going his way. It took 2 hours and a lot of mistakes and turnovers but finally John got his hard earned win. Robert, however, had enough of that nonsense and his other 3 games were all sextuples in his favour.

Just in case you hadn't noticed the calibre of play has gone up yet another notch this year. TPs are commonplace and even a SXP no longer draws the crowd of spectators as it once did. It must be time for Bob Jackson to return and show everyone how to do octuples.
