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).
