The final of the 2012 handicap doubles club competition had been held over, but was played on Wednesday evening. Cathy Turski and James Death won by 2 against Omied Hallam and Dan Greenaway, after Dan's ball had been pegged out.

When lunch eventually came (the delay being entirely the fault of the players rather than Martin, who kindly catered for us), Nottingham had crept to a 3-0 lead, though rather unconvincingly. Ian had a quick win in the afternoon to take the pressure off and we finally ended 6-1 ahead. Our next opponents are Edgbaston.
Martin Beacon & Ian Vincent bt Peter McDermott & Roger Staples +5
Peter Moore bt Andrew Killick + 3
Clive Goode bt Dennis Scarr +12
Ian Vincent bt Peter McDermott +25
Martin Beacon bt Roger Staples +9
Peter Moore bt Dennis Scarr +10
CLive Goode lost to Andrew Killick -17

On a glorious spring afternoon, Ian Burridge won the John Hansen trophy for the one-ball competition, with 5 wins out of 6. James Death was runner up with the same score, but lost out on the who beat whom principle. Ian Draper was third with 4 wins out of 6. Thanks to Peter Death for managing the event.

The installation of the irrigation system funded by the Inspired Facilities grant is nearly completed, despite the wintry weather. All the sprinkers are now installed and connected up: we are just waiting for a soil moisture detector, to enhance control of the system, to be delivered.
The first step was to dig a trench to install a pipe and control cable around the outside of the lawns:
The trench was then refilled and the turf, which had been removed with a turf-cutter, replaced:
A pit was then dug for each sprinkler, which was connected via a tee-joint welded onto the pipe:
The sprinkler itself was connected via atriple joint:
so that it could be accurately positioned
before the hole was back-filled with shingle to keep it stable
Finally, each sprinkler was tested (it helps to know where to stand!)
and the entire cycle run
