Cancelled again


It has been decided to cancel the match yet Again due to the weather
A lot of organising is done in preperation for these matches and at the end of the day the weather decides what is happening and when and trying to organise all parties, venue, food ,prizes trophies,and to a timescale etc,etc is hard work and a lot of luck with the weather
We have a date set for the 7th aug as a back up but we are seriously considering weather to bother doing it,it will be a shame but we will see.
In the meantime if the wind drops grab your boat and get afloat because this season seems to be flying by
