Mijas Masters 2012
This Year for the Mijas Masters we were lucky to only have one bad weather day. It turned out to be a good Competition with some great games. We were fortunate to have Lloyds international Bank as the sponsor’s this year. There were 47 mixed pairs and 34 mixed triples. The games were played in a good atmosphere and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The first two days were played in good weather but on the 3rd day it rained till mid afternoon. The rest of the week the sun shone on us and it was glorious.
In the final of the triples, was the team from Benavista B.C. Malcolm Greenwood, Barry and Wendy Pemberton played the team from Santa Maria B.C. Gordon and Margaret Kane and Murrey Johns. This game Started well for Benavista who won the first few ends but the Santa Maria side came up and by the 12th end it was 15 for Gordon‘s team and 10 for Malcolm’s. Malcolm’s team were not able to catch up and Gordon, Margaret and Murrey took the title.
In the pairs final there was Dudley Calder and Dorothy Pilsmoor from Miraflores B.C., against Pam Cole and Chris Rycroft for Mijas B.C. This game was a wonderful game for the spectators who where quite vocal in there support and admiration for this match. It was one of the closest games with the score at 12 ends was 12 for both teams and at 15 ends it was 15 for both teams and at 18 it was 18 for both so they had to have an extra end. It was a wonderful game and Dudley and Dorothy won by one wood. There was a big cheer for both teams; it was a memorable match, well done to both teams for the excitement a really fine game to end the Mijas Masters.
The prizes were given out by Clayton Hopley representing Lloyds International Bank who said it was good to meet everyone and hope we would contact the bank if we need any banking services. Dudley thanked all the team from Mijas who helped make such a good event and Roberto Wright for organizing the competition. There was a lovely buffet provide by the club and Carol Wright, who organized the kitchen and bar for the event.
