A GUIDE TO CLUB AFTERNOONS
Club Afternoons are held throughout the season, usually on a Thursday afternoon.
The 2019 dates are as follows:
Thursday 25th April Thursday 20th June
Thursday 2nd May Thursday 4th July
Monday 6th May Thursday 18th July
Thursday 9th May Thursday 25th July
Thursday 16th May Thursday 15th August
Monday 27th May Thursday 22nd August
Thursday 30th May Thursday 29th August
Thursday 6th June
The afternoon normally constitutes two games of four ends each and one of six ends. Teams are drawn randomly for each game.
The rink fee per person is £1. This covers the half-time hot drink, and the cost of the prizes.
The prizes are played for on the day and are for the best aggregate score from both a Lady and a Gent. There is also a 'Lucky Scorecard' prize draw.
In addition, there is an ongoing competition running throughout the season for the accolade of 'Verity Frearson Club Afternoon Player of the Year'.
Points are earned on the basis of three points if you are part of a winning team in a four-end game, and four points if your team wins the six-end game. There is one point for a drawn four-end game and two points for a drawn six-end game. Thus a player winning, say, one four-end game and the six-end game, will have a total of seven points for that afternoon.
A player's best eight scores over the season are added together and the player with the highest score will be the 'Verity Frearson Club Afternoon Player of the Year'.
