Knighthood 2016


The Knighthood - Friday (day3)
A depleted parade of the Knights saw the start of day 3 of competition.
It appears that a person who would not concede that their bus pass was invalid ground public transport to a halt, causing a couple of the Knights to miss the start. 
A cooler evening, perfect for bowls, a shortish length jack saw a very tight first end where a number of woods were involved in the measure. The theme continued as the Senior Knight cleverly positioned the jack so that the Knights were always in the cooler shadowed parts of the green. The shorter jacks bought about greater accuracy with a "toucher" losing to a "lodger" on one end. One time favourite Mick Barge failed to score and Joshua Davis took advantage to register his fourth shot. Others who gained ground are Graham Long who has three shots, David Deighton, Chris Burchall, Richard Haynes, Dudley Bryant and Eliot Mahoney who have 2 shots each. Keith Reed has opened his account with 1 shot.
A special mention for Ron Glossop who is 88 and is suffering with his health including walking and sight issues. Ron has completed every session to date. We also have to wish Ken Smith good luck as he is in his umpteenth Knighthood competition.
A not so special mention to my man Charlie who I have supported over the past few years. This year I had a few quid on him at 16-1. Pull your finger out Charlie!!!
