County League Divisional Finals

Hatfield Ladies played on Sunday 5th September at Harpenden in the County League Divisional Finals. They comfortably won against Oakhill with two ends in hand and then had to play Welwyn and District who had also won in the morning against North Mymms. Unfortunately it was the end of the run for our Ladies after playing throughout the season in this competition but congratulations go to all those who played and got so far! The full green and atmosphere at Harpenden was great to see on a somewhat warmer and brighter September morning!

Bowlers v Social Members Event

Dee kindly took some photos on Sunday when the bowlers played the social members.
The event started with a spider to win a bottle of Whiskey, which was won by one of our regular social members, Mark.
There was a good turnout so plays was on 5 rinks, and lots of laughter and fun could be seen and heard. Some of the social members should really take this game up as they showed good technique and potential skill.
After the match everyone enjoyed a lovely BBQ organised by the social members so we were grateful for the good weather to sit outside and enjoy it.
Unfortunately the day ended with the disappointing result in the Euro football final but the positive for the club was that the bar takings were good!
