It looks as though the heat will be staying around, so with hats on & water bottles filled, we’re ready to face the challenge of the next 5 weeks. Our internal league matches started at 9:30a.m. on Tuesday 7th playing just 14 ends to avoid the worst of the heat with the Cocktail league; 2 wood triples with all shots within 2 feet/60 cms counting, or none, – as measured by the Cocktail ”Stick”!! Results after the first week: Screwdriver 19-13, 2pts. Zombie 27-24, 2pts. Kamikaze 28-26, 2pts, Rusty Nail 26-28, 0pts. Side Car 24-27, 0pts. Highball 13-19, 0pts.

On Thursday 9th the Aussie Pairs League began: 2 pairs, with 8 bowls per team, playing 12 ends and normal rules so only the winners shots count. Results: Koala 16-5, 2pts. Platypus 10-0, 2 pts. Wombat 11-7, 2pts. Wallaby 7-11, 0pts. Kangaroo 0-10, 0pts. Possum 5-16, 0pts. So far, so good;  the challenges of the different formats were not always easy but hopefully enjoyable.

San Luis BC welcomes new members of ALL playing abilities, we hope they would be willing to sign up before the end of August, so we can plan how many teams to enter for 2022/23 season. Currently we have 2 teams (1 in A Div. & 1 in B Div.) in both Friday; Southern & Monday; South Alicante Leagues. More new members would allow us to add a third team; giving more opportunities for more players to play more frequently.
