On the weekend 22nd /23rd the club competition semi finals were to be played but Saturday was a complete washout and Sunday, although not constantly raining, was still wet & cold enough to decide to rest the aching joints & frozen fingers and move the competitions to this weekend, when it should be more suitable for playing.

As far as the leagues are concerned, a mixed week for results; with unfortunately more downs than ups – but hopefully next week will be better, especially if we can feel the sun on our shoulders!

Monday 24th South Alicante League: Enterprise Div. A Klingons, were away v El Rancho Pintos which is always a challenge but resulted in useful points: 6-4, shots 83-70. Winners: Tricia Reilly, Vic Mahomet, Pat Reilly 18-16, June Jones, Bill Webb, Scott Malden 36-6.

Meanwhile our Trekkers in the Discovery Div. B travelled in the opposite direction and had a hard battle against the sparkling Diamonds, points 0-10, 52shots-80.

Wednesday 26th took our Winter League team just down the road to La Siesta. Another chilly start but a good warming result: 8points-2, shots 79-48. Winners: Margaret Morrison, Lyndon Johnson, Neil Morrison, Stewart Hamill 24-14, Jane Hamill, Dee Hoey, June & Keith Jones 25-7, Giuseppe Galelli, Bill Webb, Pam Lockett, Scott Malden 20-10.

Friday 28th was a lovely sunny day, ideal for enjoying a game of bowls. Unfortunately in the Southern League Div A. the Lions, at home to Emerald Isle Cavaliers, came up against strong opposition & although Neil’s team fought back to a winning position on the last end; it didn’t stay like that. The final score was 2points-8, 60 shots-82. Well done to the winning team: Jane Hamill, Vic Mahomet, Stewart Hamill 18-11.

Div B. Tigers away v La Manga Crusaders (at Country Bowls) had a great Friday afternoon match; well worth the trip, 10points-0, 90 shots- 52. Well done to the whole team: Brian White, Brenda Brown, Bob Bromley 33-12, Terry Baylis, Cas Blay, Barry Edwards 17-13, Fran Cox, Chris Jackson, Ralph Jones 18-12, Dee Hoey, John Bagnall, Neil Cox 22-15.
