Those members who chose not to support EPS at our inter-club match against Carluke CC on Friday 5 December perhaps made a wise decision. In the event, only Richard Bingham and I made the trip.
As usual we were beaten – and again by an embarrassing margin. We lost the print section by 258 to 234 points, and although we did a little better in the PDI section, we lost that too, by 257 to 246.
The overall result was therefore 515 to 480, a margin of 35 points. Each club puts up 15 prints and 15 PDIs so we were on average more than a whole point per image worse off! Usually interclub scores are a lot closer than this, perhaps up to 10 points difference overall, so this is a humiliating setback.
On the plus side congratulations to four members, Hazel Mason and Viv Cotton who both scored a 20, and to Eion Johnston and James Frost who both scored a 19. Here are the grisly facts.
I spent an hour trying to get the tables formatted. When I finally achieved some semblance of order, I must have clicked one wrong button, and lost the whole………………… lot.
I will send the results out as an email – tomorrow.
