Tuesday evening’s second round Rosebowl competition was well attended by EHHPS, with Karen Helle, Dennis Durack, Mike Roberts, and Kristin and Paul Mason making the effort to join external Competitions Secretary Amanda Wright for the 120 mile round trip to Witney, who were hosting ourselves and XRR.
Our group was at times perplexed by judge Alan Copeland’s comments; certainly several of our images which had been successful on previous occasions were marked down for this competition. Our highest score was 18 which Karen achieved with “Last Kiss of Summer” (although Alan was concerned that there was no actual kissing involved) and Paul with “Hung Up On Him”.
In the event, Witney stormed to victory with 273 points, 25 points ahead of EHHPS, with XRR second on 262.
We very much look forward to redressing the balance when we host the next round against Field End PS, Croxley CC and Woodley PC on the 9th of February in the Town Hall.
