Report 2006


I checked the with the British Broadcasting Corporation weather centre, fine with a moderate wind, OK, no problem there then. 8 o’clock on Good Friday morning Zachary and I were hard at it. Over 100 chairs were to be set out round the ring, 12 seats for the players and others to mark off the arena. Did I feel a spot of rain? No it couldn’t be. A few more and then Zachary said, “I think it’s raining a bit.” So we took the precaution of putting the ring cover up, just in case. We began at 10.30 approx, with the first game on the main ring and two other on the side rings. All went well until about midday when the first few drops of rain came down, and then it got worse and even worse. We abandoned the side rings, covered the main ring and played a couple of games in the garage. We also played the Golden Oldies there, and thanks to Dave and Mike of the 49ers it all came together at the appropriate time to link in to the ‘Order of play’. By the late afternoon the sun was shining, but the side rings were too muddy to use and with a lot of work we caught up and the event only went on a little longer than usual. We had the prize giving just after 6pm and the final was being played while I was giving a radio interview and the cries of delight went out live on the air.
