Once again we had no scheduled game but Cosmos came through & put a team together for the evening. But the exercise was in vain as by 4:00, despite the forecast of 30% chance of showers, the sky was black & the rain started. It rained heavily around 5:00 & from reports the next morning some 72mm of rain fell on River Heights. Roads were flooded & Pembina highway closed for a few hours as the Jubilee Underpass was full of water.
In compliance with Taverner rules, even though Skipper Hein called the game off, a small collection of stalwarts gathered at the Park for 6:00 PM.
The post game venue was the Emery residence but Chris was at a meeting until around 8:30. Fortunately Philip had the code for the front door so we met again there. Philips burglary skills were not needed as Chris Jnr. was at home gave us access.
Not a particularly good turnout, just 6 Taverners players 1 Cosmos player (Andrew) & 3 support staff. The Prez arrived a little late due to the Pembina disaster in his role as bookie. This time it was the Soccer World Cup being used to tease money out of us.
Nigel gave his learned views on who would do what to who but in the end most of us just used the dart theory to pick.
Even though the hockey game was on TV nobody left the kitchen where we had a round table conference on the MCA’s lack of a schedule for Taverners even though we are now 25% through our season. Karran offered to make our views known to the League Committee.
The meeting broke up with most people leaving before our host returned home.
Despite the small numbers consumption was up for the evening & the pot was $3.00 up on requirements. A $74.00 profit was acquired for the evening.
Better luck next week where it looks like we are playing Lions 2
