Nash family the stars at Chessvale finals day
Ron defeats his wife to take the Novice Plate title
IT WAS a real family affair at the Chessvale Bowls Club finals day.
The Novices Plate final saw husband Ron Nash bravely beat wife Mae Nash, while Ron also teamed up with grandson Chris Nash to win the drawn pairs, beating Terry Melonie and Pauline Loakes in the final.
Chris, however, finished on the losing side in two other finals, losing to Pete West in the Handicap competition and Alan Sherrock in the Men’s Championship.
The unlucky Loakes, having lost the drawn pairs final, made it a trio of defeats by also going down to Margaret Harding in the Ladies Championship final and losing to Bob Bedford and Freda Holt in the nominated pairs final.
Colin Woods saw off David Morgan in the Men’s Plate final, Freda Holt overcame Jean Nettleton in the Ladies Plate final and Dave Holt triumphed over Ron Nettleton in the Novices Trophy.
Chessvale also hosted its Gala Day, which was won by Glory Mill, with Hazlemere runnersup, at which club captain Pete West underwent his ice bucket challenge.
In club matches, Chessvale beat Abbots Langley 119-54 (top rink Dorothy Morgan, Chris Nash, Pete West and Chris Wellsted); Potten End 89-52 (top rink Dorothy Morgan, Carol Remsbury, Chris Nash and Pete West); Aston Clinton 133-46 (top rink Margaret Harding, Malcolm Andrews and Tony Rixon); and Island of Bohemia 123-117 (top rink Margaret Harding, Chris Remsbury, Ken Moseley and Brian Baker).
However, they also lost 129-94 to Harrow (top rink Malcolm Andrews, Margaret Harding and Vic Easeman); 84-65 to Winslow (top rink Margaret Harding, Frances Fryer, Ron Nettleton and Pete West) and 142-105 to Chesham (top rink Tony Rixon, Derek Coomber, Ron Nettleton and Sheila Clarke).
