Hustlers Spring Break 2010

Following the practice of previous years there will be a trip meeting immediately after the home game on 21 September.

Team members are invited to submit proposals for next year’s trip.  In order to avoid an interminable series of follow-up meetings, please note that only fully baked proposals which are accompanied by a provisional idea of costs will be considered. 

Hustlers uproot Old Anchors

Hustlers shaded Old Anchor Ladies by 2 pins in a pre-season friendly on Friday night.

Getting warmed up for the new season, we gathered nervously at the Royal Union under the leadership of our glorious vice-captain.

Our skip made us set, so 1st leg warmed up the alley with a steady 8-pin lead. 2nd leg followed suit, giving us hope of a win. We then found ourselves oddly fielding a visiting child on 3rd leg (was this a subtle sabotage attempt by the sneaky Anchors?), who did well for his first ever attempt at skittles, but we still lost 13 pins, setting up a very tense contest on the last leg. Our anchors struggled valiantly, but couldn’t win the leg. But they’d done just enough and we’d scraped through to a 2-pin victory – surely a portent of things to come.

We kick off the season with a Hospitals Cup match at home on 1 September. Will it be the start of a successful run this year? Watch this space.

Welcome to the new Hustlers’ website

As you can see, if you were a past visitor, the site has undergone some major changes in preparation for the start of the 2008/09 season. A lot of content has been removed from the old site – some will eventually make a return (photos, hopefully), and some will probably not (forums). However, this new site should be better suited to our needs, and be easier to maintain and use! Feel free to have a look around, but as we are between seasons there’s not a lot going on at the moment – however, new content should be added soon!
