Last week we had the excitement (?) of our Monday League finals. To cope with the heat better, this week the organised sessions have moved to evenings (Monday, Wednesday & Fridays 5:30 for 6:00 p.m.).

Consequently on Wednesday evening some of the players finished their game and then stayed on at Oasis, potentially for tapas or BBQ, and then to watch the England v Denmark football match on the big outside screen. (Obviously not as exciting as the bowling!!!).

On Friday 2nd Dee Hoey (Soc. Sec) organised a get together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the founding of San Luis. Over an excellent meal it was good to meet up with friends we hadn’t necessarily seen for quite a few months and look forward to perhaps more “normal” bowling from October.

Our President, Scott Malden, gave a good speech reminding us of some of the club’s founder members, who are no longer with us, and the start up of San Luis BC from a tennis court! We enjoyed reminiscing about how San Luis has developed over the years; winning Southern Leagues, SABA/South Alicante Leagues, Winter Leagues (+being the only club to enter 2 Winter League teams) and we joined together in a toast to the future of San Luis Bowls Club.

The number of teams each club plans 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.

If players are prepared to commit themselves to San Luis B.C by 1st August, Gareth has agreed that for this year membership will be for 13 months, from 1st August 2021.
