The proceedings began with an apology for absence from Club President Iris Thomas who is in Neath Port Talbot Hospital at the moment.

“I’m sorry I can’t be there today.  I’m otherwise engaged.  My one regret is is not being able to present Brenda with her trophy-one of the oldest winners.  Have an extra drink for me!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year”

We were all delighted to get Iris’s message and all hope she gets better soon.  But in her absence all the awards, bar the one for Club Champion, were presented by Club Chairman, Brenda Rees.  The  Club Champion trophy was presented by Anita Morgan, because Brenda herself  was the winner and  at 83 became  the second oldest to pick up the award.

Carwen appears  to be kissing the  trophy, maybe thinking  ”I wus robbed” in the Final against her daughter Ceri. It was a great game finishing on an extra end when the game was tied.  Ceri took  the end by one shot.

The final presentation was of 4 Hot Shots Certificates, presented by Brenda to the rink that scored all 8 shots available in one end in a league game against another club.
