Saint Patrick’s Day Limerick Competition

There were only two entries to the competition this year, but both were original works, written especially for the event.

The runner-up, written by Steve Stewart was:

Doctor Palmer was a farmer
He looked like Willie Nelson.
He braided his hair.
He just didn’t care!
And sometimes he wore it with bells on.

The winner was written by Chris Palmer:

There was an ex-prezzie called Steve,
Thought composing a sort of reprieve,
He grew his hair long,
Like L van Beethoven,
But his playing made everyone leave.

Judging was by imaginary ‘clapometer’

First prize was a can on Guinness

Second prize was the sense that true art transcends the value of such fleeting material awards, and lasts longer – even longer than the head on Guinness.

2018 Pool Tournament Finals

In the semi finals team Millie Watson and Steve Stewart beat team Carol Hamilton and Gerry Crapo.

Team Tony and George Elder eliminated team Richard Bauch and Bevan Tomm.

The big final game featured pool shark Steve Stewart and his protege Millie Watson against the other pool shark George Elder and his spouse Tony.

The latter team took advantage of some unfortunate moves by their opponents to win the trophy in two games straight.
