CURTC vs The Dutch, 4/1/2020

At 5-all, Professor Kirk’s Chilli seemed to be the best idea for a tie breaker. But to get there (5-all, not the location of the Chilli), we had a couple of 8-7’s one going Dutch, the other not. I had the slightly unnerving experience of standing (literally) midway between Peter (standing in for the unfortunate Andrew Petrie) and Andreas. With the occasional shrug and grimace to Vix in my role but on the opposite of the net. We rushed to 8-all on our way to a set to 10. I held my nerve, i.e. kept out of the way as efficiently as possible, and we eeked out a 10-8 win. Many thanks also to our very own newly haircutted Mark who leapt from the Marker’s box to battle Andreas to 40-all in a one game third set tie breaker after Andrew was forced to retire. And last but by no means least, many thanks to Marker, Kees and Chef extraordinaire John Trapp for another memorable evening!
