V.I.B.E. Nottingham .I.B.C.  February 2020


 Representing Yeovil V.I.B.C. Ron Homer & Maurice (Mo) Perry.

Ron and Mo started this competition full in the knowledge they had it within themselves to win the championship. After an ugly win in the first game (Rons Quote) they started to put it together and won the second game 17.2 Finishing the first day with a 7.3 win for pair were ready for day two.

Maureen Ryan and David Mears were our pairs first opposition, and Maureen playing very well with great covering play by David saw our pair loose by two shots. Fortunately Ron and Mo had done enough to secure third place, which put them in the trophy group play off.

Ron and Mos first game was against the second placed pairing of Maureen Ryan and David Mears.

With four ends played Ron and Mo were 4.1 down when it was Mos turn. One wood needed to be took out of the head to give them a five shot

 tally with three woods to play.

The wood was removed cleanly and Mo carried on drawing shot after shot until the marker on his final measure of the head awarded Ron and Mo all eight shots. There was no looking back now for our pair who won convincingly. The next game saw them up against Darron Moon and Winston Healey from Plymouth. With only eight Endsplayed, the session was suspended after Keith Collins collapsed on the next rink and had to be attended to by two ex ambulance drivers until Keith was rushed to hospital. When play restarted Ron and Mo were put to the test, but getting out in front towards the end of the game our pairs experience and knowledge of their opponents method of play was all that was needed to secure another win.

With Keith in hospital and Gareth Harwood his pairs partner with him, the third and final game could not be played. Ron and Mo the only two game winners out of three and were subsequently awarded the championship.

Nottingham ibc were once again excellent hosts and grateful thanks goes to all who volunteered to make the championships playable.

Although Keith spent an extra night in hospital we were very glad to hear he is now feeling much better.

Many congratulations to Ron & Mo
