President Les Canfield hosted the annual President's Day on Saturday July 18th and was rewarded with glorious sunny weather and a turnout of 12 Triples to contest the Trophy.
 
Assisted by many of his family members, sons and grandchildren, Les put on a wonderfully organised event culminating in a lavish 3 course feast with free wine.
 
Son Russell was responsible for the playing side of things and all instructions, score-cards etc were professionally produced leading to a very smoothly-run Competition.
 
Starting and finishing with a "Spider", Les donated £25 to each of the two lucky winners - Derek Goodyear and Maurice Ward.
 
The actual President's Trophy was competed for in two leagues of 6 teams, and after the initial session of play, the finalists emerged as Doreen Penn's trio with Jenny Lowe and Richard Plested, and making it a family affair, the Triple of skip Graham Penn with Grandson Thomas and Simon Bell.  In a very closely fought final over 8 ends, Doreen's team ran out winners by just a couple of shots.
 
They were presented with the President's Trophy by Les, and the runners-up received shiny medals.
 
A really enjoyable and well-organised day was appreciated by everyone who took part, and thanks again to Les and all his family for doing all the work to make is so successful.
