To the delight of thirty-ish MUWPC members and disappointment of Robert Wilks, the club’s Christmas Party and AGM rolled into Percy’s Bar on 9 December, 2011. Whilst Robert would have preferred the fare at Longrain, everyone else downed their parmas in good cheer. Highlights of the AGM included President David’s review of our club members’ many achievements in 2011, as well as the election of Sean Connelley to our committee in the coveted role of Vice President..
After Percy’s, the dedicated amongst us wandered down Lygon St to a nondescript sports bar for the inevitable post Christmas Party pool comp. Defending champ Sean Connelley seemed to be odds-on for the victory, but bowed out in the semi finals. The grand final saw David Jame and Chris Seville battling it out for the honours. The match was tight, but a low-percentage play from David with both players on the black cost him the championship. Congratulations must however go to Chris, who capped off a record-breaking year with this hard-fought pool title.
After such a stellar 2011, it really is exciting to think what 2012 may hold in store for MUWPC.
