Round three of the SilverFin 5’s series was played in near perfect conditions. We welcomed visiting teams from Milford, Takapuna and Birkenhead and a composite team lead by Garry Banks. A full field of 16 teams played the interesting format of pairs and triples, 3 games of each with a break for a cuppa and a break for lunch.
We thank our sponsor, Silverfin Capital – https://www.silverfin.nz/ – and encourage you all to consider Silverfin as an investment option for a portion of your financial plan. Silverfin Capital Limited is a business specialising in property syndication and management. Their schemes are structured to provide investors with a cash return from commercial and industrial real estate, without the burdens of private property ownership.
The format for the Silverfin 5’s means that a team of five players play 3 games of pairs and 3 games of triples. And so it is possible to win 6 games. However with such a strong field and such competitive teams it is an outstanding achievement to win even 5 out of the 6 and today we had two teams with 5 wins.
Congratulations to Ian Hardy, Ruth Lynch, Trish Hardy, Lionel Drew and Evan Thomas as they managed 5 wins and 52 points to be the winning team.
2nd – 5W, 50P – Leon Wech, Colleen Rice, Gerd Hutcheson, Bevan Darlington and Tony Popplewell
3rd – 4W, 55P – Jan Gledhill, Sheryl Wellington, Phil Chisholm, George Durbridge and John Gledhill
4th – 4W, 49P – Geoff Ladd, Ian Baxter, David Lloydd, Norm Clarke and Pat Clarke
