The Ladies of the League gathered at Bar Buscavidas, Los Montesinos, for our 4th Ladies Christmas Pentathlon. The “Blind Draw” decided the four teams; and this year the teams were named to suit the season, namely Santas, Angels, Christmas Trees and Snowballs. The various Pentathlon disciplines included Bulls Eyes, a Team Game, Shanghai, Singles and Doubles.
Once again, the Christmas Trees were the team of the night and this year’s team scored the highest ever with 170 points; Runners-up were the Snowballs on 115 points. This was followed by the Santas with 101 points and bringing up the rear was the Angels with 78 points.
Each team had its own star of the night, with Ann Wharton gaining 29 points for the Angels, Sheerin DilMohammed and Cynthia Jevons jointly scoring 29 points each for the Santas; Mitch Halliday scored 42 points for the Snowballs: and finally Lin Cousins scoring 45 points for the Christmas Trees.
There was the usual Christmas Raffle, with Hampers, Ferrero Roche and Panettone as the Prizes, organised by Gogarty’s Gals from the Gap Bar in La Zenia. Everyone had an enjoyable evening, thanks to our Hosts Pepe and Campi who looked after us magnificently, providing the food.
Extra thanks to Pepe, for Judging the Fancy Dress, the Winner was Stacey McDermott who came as a Leprechaun. Further thanks must go to the Collators Ann Bartlett, Ann McGivern, Simone de Lacy & Tracey Simpson for all their hard work during the evening. Plus everyone who did any chalking necessary; and finally to your Captains and to you all for coming along and making the evening another success. Well done everyone.
During the evening we made a Special Presentation to the Primadonnas, because they were unable to attend our Annual Presentation Dinner in May.
League Badges & Certificates were presented to Deborah Le-Grys, June Stansfield, Peta Neale and Jean Gregory.
140 Awards were presented to Deborah Le-Grys and Carol Hurley.
