In the words of the song “here we go again, happy as can be all good pals and jolly good company”.

I still find it strange to look forward to winter, but living here on the Costa Blanca that is very easy where the bowling is good and the company excellent.

Monday saw out newly promoted Pathfinders at home to Greenlands Maples.  Quite a formidable start to the season, as Greenlands had just done almost a clean sweep of the Championships, and so it proved to be.

Greenlands winning 10-2 with shots of 92-66 in their favour.   Our thanks go to Lesley and Dave Joynes skipped by Sue Daniels for avoiding the whitewash, winning 24-13 (which included a 8 in our favour).

Meanwhile our Explorers travelled to Emerald Isle, to play against their Neptunes and came away with a 8-4 with 103-74 shot difference and 3 winning trips for a very creditable victory.  I must just mention our top trip of Steve Douglas, Jeff Collins, and Cliff Rawlinson on winning 37-10.

Lastly I would like to congratulate Jeff Collins, Steve Syddell and Steve Wright who all ended up on winning trips for their first outing   with Tom’s Explorers.

First Friday games and the Sharks get a bye whilst the Seagulls travel to El Rancho.  Where they had a exceedingly good result of 8-4 points and a overall shot of 87-81.  Our highest winning trip this week goes to Desna Lowe, Dave McGaw and Mick Lowe.  Well done to all.
