Last week we were playing catch up with our competitions that were cancelled the previous weekend.  Saturday proved a busy day and a real glorious day for playing and watching bowls.  In the morning we had a club day that John Rae held, followed by our 2 singles finals, followed by presentations and a buffet.  All in all an excellent day.  Our competition winners are as follows:

MIXED 4’s   –  Peter & Janet Parsons with Don & Jean Fowkes.

MIXED Trips – Anne & Mike Stone with Carol Smith.

MEN’s Trip – Peter Parsons, Mike Stone and Don Fowkes.

MIXED PAIRS – Anne & Mike Stone.

MEN’S PAIRS – Garth Slater and Alex Morrice.

LADIES PAIRS – Irene Mangan and Maryln Fryatt

MEN’S SINGLES – Don Fowkes

LADIES SINGLES – Janet Parsons

Wishing you all well in Champion of Champions our commiserations to all our losing finalists and a big thank you for a very successful competition season.

Mother used to say March in like a lion and out like a lamb.  The first seems to be right lets hope the second is as well.

Monday saw the start of our summer league and our team travelled down to Country Bowls, on a cold and wet day to achieve a fine result ably reported by our team captain Margaret Finlayson “ we won on 3 rinks, highest winning rink – by Moira, Cliff and Shirley reaching a score of 30-13, the other 2 winning rinks did well and the other 2 losing rinks did well to keep their scores down to give us a overall shots total of 106-91 a great start to a new league”.

Wednesday could not have been more different, a fine drizzle of red rain hardly noticeable until you see everything turning red including our whites and bowls.  It was the first game of the new season with the format of 1 rink, 1 triple, 1 pairs, and 1 men’s singles and 1 ladies singles.  We travelled to Greenlands and unfortunately came away with a Eurovision Score of Nil points.

Friday 18th saw our re-arranged Pathfinders game against St Louis Trekers with a winning total of 8 points to 2, shot difference 73 for 58 against and our top trip of Trevor Stemp, Irene Mangan and John Rae winning 25-8.  I mustn’t jump to conclusions but I do feel this score may have led to promotion, we must all wait with baited breath
