Table Top Sale – Saturday 9th October.

Before we talk bowls we would like to thank everyone who donated articles or time or both and for all those that turned up to buy a very big thank you – it’s unfortunate but everything in the end depends on money and table top sales is our best form of income to keep the club solvent.  Give yourselves a big pat on the back.

Monday 11th saw the start of the new bowls season and La Marina Explorers and Pathfinders find themselves in the same division and were drawn against each other.  A neutral says there are no winners and losers in this situation, but don’t tell the bowlers that, I am sure that the anticipation and rivalry are intense – on this occasion the Pathfinders 8 – 2 victory over the Explorers.  The teams and scores as follows.

Paul Tregoing, Wendy Latham, Mike Stone v Trevor Hancock, Dave McGaw, John Rae, 18-15, Jean Tregoing, Carol Smith, Cliff Rawlinson v Lesley Joynes, John Morgan, Irene Mandan, 11-21, Anne Stone, Jean Fowkes, Don Fowkes v Reg Jackson Bernie Carr, Garth Slater, 9-20, Mo Kidd, Mike Smith, Alex Whyte, v Audrey Birch, David Joynes, Alec Morrice 16-22

Wednesday saw another Barclays Properties League fixture and as mentioned last week, both the top and bottom very tight, with this weeks shock results bringing some changes.  The bottom team, Bears beating the Koalas, 6 – 2 putting the Bears both above the the Seals and Tigers and the Koalas dropping from 2nd to 3rd behind the Lambs and Lions, the full league table is:

Lambs 58 points, Lions 57, Koalas 56, Dolphins 51, Pandas 49, Collies 38, Monkeys 35, Bears 34, Tigers 32, and Seals 30.  So 1st and last places are still very much up for grabs.  Our thanks go to Louisa and staff for a lovely meal after the game.

The new Friday League starts off with our Division A side, Sharks visiting The Emerald Isle Cavaliers, and Division B side, Seagulls at home to the San Luis Tigers.  The Sharks came away losing 8-2, and the Seagulls drew 2 games each 71 shots each, giving a honorable draw of 5 points each.
