Sunday 7th August
We had three generations of Hectors. Brothers Tim and Chris played against Kathryn and Duncan. Megan used her new walking skills to survey the hoops. We played alternate shot with Duncan finding some excuse to drop out leaving Kathryn playing on her own with Peg and 5 against 3 and 4. Some miraculous (impossible) angled hoop runs from Chris and a combined strategy from the brothers saw Duncan pick his mallet up again when Tim was lining up for a double peg out at a range of about 10 yards which succeeded much to Duncan's astonishment - a winning margin of +3. On flat lawns yes, but on Bygrave hills????
