Some excellent bowling at the semi finals of the Valencian Championships.  San Miguel were well represented with someone playing in each discipline.  We were guaranteed the mens pairs as two San Miguel teams played against each other. Stuart Denholm and Chris Collier came out on top over Carl Eagle and Bob Nesbitt, but Stuart Denholm and Ann Allen lost in the mixed pairs.

On Friday, the rinks team Cliff, Val, Chris and Stuart had a good win, and the winning triples team Eileen McLaren, Tom Dalgleish and Mary Dyer had a very close finish. The ladies pairs of Gail Willshire and Lynn Greenland, had a nip and tuck game against Peta and Carol, but after having the jack measured by Quesada on the last end,( it was well in), San Miguel lost.  WELL DONE TO YOU ALL.  Finals results next week!!

Keep you eyes on the boards in the office, team sheets are up, don’t forget to tick off!!

Well we have arrived back from our 5 day trip to Mojacar where we all enjoyed the super hotel the Marina Playa and all its amenities. On Sunday it was just a short (but uphill) walk to our first game against Mojacar Bowls Club.

webThe weather was very hot, but nevertheless an enjoyable game was had by all. On Monday we visited The Indalo Bowls Club and were made very welcome by our hosts, once again the heat was intense and many a bottle of water was drunk to keep hydrated.

On Tuesday we returned to Mojacar B.C. for our final game with them before a well deserved rest on the Wednesday. For most of the members it was a chance to use the local bus service to sightsee and do some shopping in the shopping plaza and a visit to the old town of Mojacar proved very interesting.

Thursday was our last game at Almeria B.C situated on the Los Gallardos caravan site, the extreme heat required the match to be curtailed after 16 ends to every ones relief. The club thanked Dave Giddings for all his hard work in organizing the trip and we wish him get well soon and back to his bowling best.

The league games start in earnest next week so here’s hoping for an enjoyable and successful season for every one.

Thursday 6th October saw us hosting the first of five Touring teams from the U.K. over the next ten day period. During this time we also have three league games to fit in so a busy time for Monte Mar. Our first visitors were from the Dolphins Bowls Club based in Poole, Dorset.

As the Dolphins only arrived in Spain the night before we may have caught them not at the top of there game, as we had a good win. We had a great mornings bowling, with good bowling from both teams. With our visitors enjoying playing in the sunshine.

The bowling was followed by a well deserved drink and most enjoyable lunch at El Rincon with lots of laughter. Ladies from our Social Committee organised a very successful raffle.
