Results Friday 28th, Sharks were home to St Luis Lions and lost 4-8 (71-83), our top winning trip being Mo Kidd, Jim Reeves and Peter Parsons with a 26-6 win.  Meanwhile the Seagulls travelled to La Siesta Gold where again we lost 8-4 (81-83).

Saturday 29th and the first KO competition of the season the Premier 20/20 – that is singles, + pairs + triples + fours (rinks) both home and away, giving us a win of 9 points to 7 with tight games, this time going in our favour.   The next round will be against Quesada.

Monday 31st,  Pathfinders had a bye and the Explorers travelled to Quesada for a afternoon game against their Diamonds.  Last week I congratulated our all ladies trip for being our top trip, this week I must congratulate our all ladies trip (3 different ladies) for our only trip and avoiding that dreaded whitewash.  The overall score was 10-2 with a shot difference of 76-114.  Our three ladies were Anne Stone, Marilyn Fryatt & Shirley Hadaway with a 22-19 win.

The League table is good news for our Explorers being in second place and only 1 point behind the leaders.

Our newly promoted Pathfinders team is not quite as encouraging placing us second to bottom with 12 points, but only 4 points behind 4 place who have 16 points so all is not as black as it may seem.

Currently with our Birds League the Magpies are flying high with 14 points, closely followed by the Eagles with 13 and with the reputation of those 2 birds anything can happen.

Nov 4th – and our Seagulls were home to La Siesta Blues, where we came away with 4 points to their 8, with a shot difference of 70-103 our 2 winning trips were Lesley and Dave Joynes skipped by Dave Lowe, 24-20, and Trevor Stemp, Reg Jackson & Alan Birch 14-11, meanwhile our Sharks had a early start to play Country Bowls . Quite a long trip to have lost 3-9 , our only winning trip being Anne Stone, Shirley Hadaway and Alex Whyte  with a win of 20-18, our draw points came from Janet Parsons, Kath Manning and Mike Stone.  Our thanks to all our players.
