Great start to the week with our Open Aussies Pairs Competition. Played in a fantastic if not extremely hot environment, which resulted in Pearl Houghton having to retire due heat exhaustion. We hope you recovered well Pearl.

From start to finish it was played in a friendly but competitive manner and considering the heat a great standard of bowling was achieved throughout the day.

The Winners were John and Belinda Archer from Bonalba and the runners up were |Alan Phillips and Nige Thompson from Javea. Well done to both pairs. I would also like to thank all who entered and trust you had a great day.

These days as we all know don’t just happen. A lot of hard work goes in to ensure the smooth running so I would like to thank Peter Bonsor, our Club Captain, for all his hard work ensuring the success of this event, with him and his team of helpers doing a great job. Unfortunately I was hospitalized at the time which meant a lot more work for Pete and I thank him for that. Also thanks to the members who rallied round with the cleaning prior to the event thus ensuring it was at its best. If I have forgotten anyone I apologise.

Jill as usual came up trumps with the raffle and we thank her for that.

John” BBQ” Rosati kept everyone fed and we have had no reports of salmonella to press, Thank you John.

Thanks to Enrique and his staff for keeping the drinks flowing and also to Julia for presenting the prizes all in all a great day.

Next up we have the final game of the Come and Go league on Friday (report next week).
