Given the forecast of heavy and persistent rain for the afternoon the team captains agreed to play a 12 hole match and to tee-off early. To an extent, however, this was thwarted by a lorry breakdown on the A30 between Chiverton and Carland Cross which caused some of the Truro team, including Captain John, to be at a standstill for half an hour! The playing order was therefore switched to a first come first served basis, which helped the early starters avoid the worst of the weather. The match itself resulted in a fine win for the Old Saints which will be banked to take to the return fixture in July. The nearest the pin winner on the 8th for the home side was Keith Hawke. The visitors praised the condition of the course and the staff in the dining room were thanked for preparing an excellent meal.
The next match is at home against Launceston at home on Monday 16th March.
