They say every dog has its day and on Monday, with the last match of our 6 team internal trips league, it was The SPANIELS (Brian, Ray & Derrick+ subs Pete & Pam) who came out as top dogs with wagging rights & a clean lead, winning 10pts + 28 shots, keeping the TERRIERS (Helen, Ann, Scott) in 2nd place; 6pts +18 shots.

Over the 5 weeks there were some very close matches and some unexpected results! Even starting at 10:00 a.m. & limiting the matches to 14 ends, it was still hard to keep going in the heat but we made it and obviously it helps having Oasis outdoor bar open to provide us with cool drinks & snacks.

Bowling for members will continue on Monday mornings for those who want to play and on other days as well, earlier if they wish. On Wednesdays bowling has already moved to the evening 5:30 for 6:00 & Friday play will also move to the evening.

The Saturday CHICKEN DRIVE will continue at present 9:30 for 10:00 & is OPEN to federated bowlers, from any club as before; obviously following current distancing directions.

The usual green fee of 4€ applies to non SL members +1€ entry fee per person.

If you have any queries please contact Pete Ayres:

The number of teams each club is planning to enter has to be notified to LLB by mid August so people will have to make decisions soon about where they intend to bowl for the winter season.
