Silverfin 5s Results – 26 January 2021

Round four of the SilverFin 5’s series was played in near perfect conditions.  We welcomed visiting teams from Milford, Takapuna and Birkenhead. 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 three teams with 5 wins.

Congratulations to John Miles, Caryl Miles, Arthur Beale, John Lindsay and David Lloydd as they managed 5 wins and 50 points to be the winning team.

2nd – 5W, 49P – Jan Gledhill, Sheryl Wellington, Phil Chisholm, George Durbridge and John Gledhill
3rd – 5W, 48P – Murray Radjokovich, Brian Rogers, Therresa Rogers, Des Lowe and Muy Chhour
4th – 4W, 50P – Ian Hardy, Trish Hardy, Lionel Drew, Evan Thomas and Ruth Lynch
oh so close – 4W, 44P – Ian Coombe, Sandra Coombe, John Valentine, Gaye Horne, Ron Horne.  They were joined by Braden and Sam from Silverfin in the last game of the day.

The next Silverfin 5s date is Tuesday 30 March.  Please confirm the availability of each of your team members and indicate on the start sheet that your team is available for play on 30 March, when we look forward to welcoming our sponsor, Silverfin Capital Ltd., who are considering entering a team.

Along with our thanks to Silverfin Capital goes our thanks and appreciation to the team of helpers and organisers, lead by Sandra Coombe.  So much work goes on behind the scenes to make these events happen and we thank all who helped out.
