2023 Activity:

Wednesday 22nd November. Sparks flying, dust raising and huge craters in the ground. Such was the the surrounding environment to the challenge of Trish to Thracey. Having been away for a few months Thracey was unchallengeable, so Trish was quick to take the opportunity to do battle. The Result: Trish 13 Thracey 6. Trish moves up from middle ranking to now 4th on the ladder. (see full ladder below)

Another challenge opened up with Max T against Rex. If your ever wanted to see a match of superb quailty and even skills, this was it. Never more than 1 point in it at anytime. The scores stood at 12 all at the start of the last end. By a fortunate turn of the boule Rex got the last point 13 -12. What a match!

Wednesday 13th October. Leaders leap in with a full on tussle in perfect conditions. In a match showing great dexterity and skill between Myriam (top rank) and Bob (2nd) the positions were changed at the final score of 13 to 4. Bob now on top. He is eagerly seeking challengers in a drive to keep his shooting up to scratch.

Wednesday 4th October. Oh how quickly they fall. Crappy weather day with few players about. So Thracy took the bull by the horns with an all out challenge on Rex. Kapow! Bang! Whallop! THere lays Rex in in a puddle of gravelly water. Done like a dinner 13-6. And the bad news.... Thracy is O/S for 4 weeks.

Friday 25. August. Well the Big Guns finally came out to play. Even though Rex had not played a single game  in 4 weeks and was suffering badly from pneumonia and 2 crushed verterbrae, the challenge from John Muscat was eagerly accepted. It started out as a very even match. End for end. Point for point. At last though, John started to make headway and Rex succumbed to a whalloping defeat; John - 13 Rex - 8. In fine fashion, and in the true spirit of the Ladder Challenge John accepted a return challenge. De je Vu it was. like a recorded version of the first game, with just a slight change in the ending. This time; John -13 . Rex -7. Ce la Vie!

Wed 19th. July. There is movement at the Station.......Denis has added himself to the Ladder and immediately challenged Leigh. In the bright Winter sunlight though, Denis secumbed to Leigh's onslaught of viscious Shooting and Hard pointing. The Score 13-7. No change to the ladder. Rex, feeling "in the mood" had another whack at BOB and with a score of 13-7, proved to be Victorious. Therefore moving up the ladder to 2nd  place. However, it was only short lived as Bob immediately rechallenged. Through Blood, Sweat & Tears, Bob broke through with a Win again 13-7 taking 2nd spot dropping Rex to 3rd.

Wed 12 th July. THE BIG COMEBACK.......well almost. Determined  to wrench  the top spot from  the long term incumbent, Myriam put out the Challenge to Dr Bob. Initially, it looked like an easy walkover with Myriam leaping to a 12-0 lead. But then Bob Loided his Gerns and like a clone of DiCaprio in Titanic, Bob clung on, and on, and on with an incredible comeback to 12 -11. And then like DiCaprio, Bob disappeared into the icy depths of defeat. Myriam victorious  with 13-11. A change in the ladder standings indeed.

Wed 28th June. We  have a New "Ladder Member", Lyn Dufresne. With a magnificent  challenge  to Bob in very wet conditions  in the rain. Lyn had Bob on his knees at one stage, but Bob recovered and eventually won 13-6.  No change to the Ladder


Wed 31st.May. Staggeringly good challenge of Rex to Bob. A sweeping start put Rex ahead 6 -1. However Bob broke him into little peices with final outcome Bob -13 Rex 9. No Change to ladder. In another area of the grounds, A hard fought battle demonstrating the high quality of both players, Myriam Challenged Mary. Final score; Mary - 13. Myriam - 11. No change to ladder

Wed 24th,May. Late afternoon Challenge from Billie to Dr. Bob The Scores; Billie 4, Bob 13. No change to the ladder.

Wed 24th,May.  Well, at last, the result of the BIG THREE WAY Challenge between Trish, Leigh & Rex. The opening situation was this:First of 3 games: R-13, L-9, T -10. Second game: T-13, R-12, L -5. Gruelling and close was theme for the final leg. Trish broke away, taking a great lead up to 10 points. Leigh was consistant sitting around 6-7. Then Rex who had been lagging, statrted the big come back. After what seemed like 5 hours hard play and the last boule to play,( L with 9, Rex with 12 and Trish with 11,) Trish put down a mighty boule exploding the nest and gained the 2 points needed. Outstanding play allround. The Ladder result: Trish with 2 wins out of 3 Holds her place. Leigh Holds her place. Rex holds his place. All that time and effort. Wow! What a Marathon.

Wed 19th, April. One Challenge; Vinze vs Dr Bob. Close match. Bob victorious 13 -11

.Wed 15th, March. One challenge (unsuccessful) today. Myriam 8. Bob 13. So no change to ladder.

Brilliant challenge from Rex to Jenny. Rex 13 Jenny 9. However, rechallenge Jenny 13, Rex 10. Another challenge from Rex. Jenny 13, Rex about 6. So no change to the ladder. Much ado about no change

Wed 8th. March. Myriam & John Muscat battled it out. John Victorious in the first challenge 13-3. Myriam rechallenged and got up  with 13-10. Billie and Max Wright did it on the piste with Billie coming out on top 13-11. Top of the Ladder Big Bash saw Dr Bob overcome Guy 13-7

Wed 18th. Jan. Although a  couple of challenges have been done & won (or Lost), because each challenge was unsuccessfull there are no changes to the ladder standings. Michael Young has taken on Rex on two occasions in recent weeks with best of 3 matches in each case. The latest, in rain, Rex 2 games M.Y. nil.

Friday 13th. Jan. There is an ongoing 3 way challenge between Leigh, Trish & Rex. A match of best of 3. So far not even the first game has been completed, due to the lighting regulation requiring it to be turned off by 10 p.m. At that stage the scores were: Leigh - 8, Trish - 7, and Rex - 9.  Stay tuned

Wed. 4th. Jan. : Michael v Rex. Game: 1 Michael 13, Rex 5. Game 2: Michael 6, Rex 13. Game 3: Michael 11, Rex 13. No change to ladder standing


    2. hallenge consists of 1 game to 13 points, untimed. Should you wish to prolong the agony to best of 3 thats up to participants, however challenger has the last say. I suggest the best idea is 1st to 13 and if loser wants to then re-challenge he/she/other pronoun can.

    3. 2)  Every attempt should be made to fulfil a challenge within 2 weeks. I suggest the challengee should offer several potential times within that time span. I have tended to fit them in around the play days but they could be anytime, or, for that matter, any venue. Obviously work commitments/holiday/illness are not infrequent reasons for being unavailable. This is an attempt to keep the ladder moving not a Draconian edict.

    4. 3)  If challenger wins he moves above the challenger in the ladder and everyone below moves down 1 space. If he loses nothing changes.

    5. 4)  Record the result. I have placed paper in the CPC white instruction manual kept in the “Television locker”. Also take a photograph of the updated ladder (the name tags can slip sometimes) and forward both the result and the photo to Rex for website update.

    Again enjoy a social event with a competitive edge.
