The worst thing about writing "The Bugle" is that whenever, unless we achieve the ultimate, it must conclude with failure. The good bit about the 2018 Bugle is that it ends with "Glorious Failure". Our remaining rinks: - Bill Gibbon, Tony Knibbs, Gordon Kent and Bob Day together with Ritchie Callanan, Roy Chillingworth, Ray Chipperfield and Alf Collar eventually had to succumb to a very strong Canterbury side in the Area Semi-Final of the Cox Cup. Gents, the hats of all Herne Bay members go off to you in what must be classed as a magnificent run in the competition beating other clubs, some of whom only entered one side in the competition. I also include Paul Evans and Peter Gibson who both played in earlier rounds.
My congratulations go to Dave Mason, Scott Whiting, Joe Kelly and Grant Allen on winning the Kent County 4's. A great result lads.
Also, commiserations to Len Brown, Mike Trotter, Bob Baldwin and Brian Dennis in the County Senior 4's Final loosing in the last couple of ends to a very, very strong Bromley side. Special thoughts to Mike & Len so close gents, I know exactly how you feel - been there got the t-shirt.
