From the ditch

2015-07-08 06:00

JACQUES Minnaar met Gerhard Balzer last week in a quarter-final, and Jacques moved into the lead in the early stages.

Then Gerhard found length and accuracy to draw closer. Eventually the close tussle went the way of Jacques­, 21-12.

On the other side of ladder is Francois van Rooyen to play Chris Fischer. The winner will play Jacques­ in the final.

On the board is the handicap singles­ entry form - this is when everyone­ is handicapped - from plus-four to minus-four, which means a weaker player could get as much as eight shots on the stronger player. So far no one has entered besides the president and the match secretary. Entries close Saturday on 11 July.

The soup evening went off well - all the soup was finished and the bar depleted.
