The Nominees gathered in the great court hall busying themselves with warmups and shooting drills while waiting for Queen Jo to enter with this years Honours List. Once assembled the Queen split the players into 2 teams.
The OBE’s (Obsessive Basketball Efforts) in Blue, Louise, Feddi, Nancy, AK, Andreea, Tulay. Versus The MBE’s (Mad-for-it Basketball Evangelists) in Green, Sarita, Gill, Laurie, Sally, and Shirley. The OBE’s scored first with a team effort between AK, Feddi and Nancy. The MBE’s took their time before Shirley made the green basket to the list. Sarita was first to bow to the Queen finding herself on the floor. No foul was called and the game played on. In between a couple of water breaks and subbing, AK collected her OBE for services rendered to the net. Nancy received her’s for catching, shooting and all round team player. Sally was awarded MBE for best blocking. Fedi for Travel. Tulay for a near miss finger Jam. Laurie for marking. Gill for dodging her Marker. The award of the evening went to Andreea for her services to Drama. Her latest film ’Don’t touch my Heir’ The ceremony was fast hot and beautifully exhausting.
Brilliant fun had by all. See you all next week for more fun and if you can make it, drinks after play. X
