There was another enjoyable evening at QBC last Thursday evening, when the hosts entertained bowlers and guests from Greenlands BC. Although the annual ‘friendlies’ 4 match series is now a foregone conclusion, next week’s match at Greenlands promises to be as competitive as the others.
For the 3rd consecutive week, it was the blue side of AP7 who emerged victorious, this time by 6 rinks to 1. There were some high scoring matches, from which the trips team of Chris Bowles, Claire Dye & Kim (is my hair ok?) Bowles, emerged as best winning rink. As per normal, a post-match meal deal was available in The Club, and I can honestly say that the steak and ale pie is to die for!
Running in tandem with the friendlies, is the clubs internal 2 wood drawn pairs league. Played on a Wednesday evening, last week’s gruelling schedule included one-off Friday games (never say that us oldies don’t have stamina!).
With only 1 week of this league left to run, before the final between the winners of group A and group B, it’s still all to play for. In group A there are 2 teams on 6 points, whilst in group B, 3 teams currently have 4 points.
Wednesday 27 October, will see the start of a new internal league. Although the format has yet to be officially announced, I’m led to believe that it will be something different from the norm! Watch this space.
At a recent LLB meeting, QBC were drawn to play Emerald Isles in the preliminary round of the 21/22 Premier 20 ko cup.
