Monday 28th March saw us at home in the Harrier Division to La Siesta Hornets, where we lost 4 points to 8, trying to watch was quite cold but it amazes me how many still play in shorts and tee shirts, (a breed above) The final shots were 82-91 close for a game in which our 3 losses added up to 34 shots but our big winning trip of Lesley & Dave Joynes and Trevor Hancock won 29-7 (top winning trip of the day) helped to greatly reduce the total and made the overall quite acceptable.
Wednesday 30th was a different story, we were at home to San Miguel in the VCL league (my favourite formula) and won 10-2. We won both the singles with Margaret Finlayson and Tom Spencer by 21-18, and we fought back from a losing position to win the rinks 20-18, the pairs of Norman Ship and Alex Morrice won 25-12, we only lost on the trips by 11-20 giving us a shot difference of 98-86.
Friday saw our re-arranged VCL game against San Louis Hawks and it was well worth waiting for another 10-2 win, – 2 10-2’s in 1 week, well done everybody.
Lastly we would like to thank Bumblebee Prints (a local firm on our urbanization) for updating our honours board which is a credit to their skills and artistic values, as they have been providing the service to us for many years.
You can enjoy bowls and never win, you can win the club championship and feel exaulted but to see your name on the honours board is when you feel real pride, take a look at our honours board in the clubhouse and you can’t help but admire it – to see your name up there being part of the history of the club is really something special.
PS: The summer leagues are shortly taking a break for the Champion of Champions which is being held at Quesada, please support our members who are taking part. Either check the notice board, or check the Levante Lawn Bowls web site, for disciplines and dates.
PPS: Loreta is organising Monkey Racing for the 18th April, please either contact her or put your name on the sheet on the notice board. All are welcome
