La Marina Bowls


Monday 5th December and our Pathfinders are at home to St Luis Clingons, and start with + 10 shots and 2 points because unfortunately the Clingons could only send 4 trips, it was also the day we said goodbye to Mick and Desna Lowe for the season, and I am pleased to say they both ended up on a high by being on winning trips.  Hopefully Len & Sue Daniels will be back from their cruise for the New Year Fixtures, to slot right in and take their places.   We won the game with 10 much needed points and a shot difference of 85 – 62.

Our Explorers has to travel to San Miguel to play their Orcas and came away with 4 well deserved points losing the shot difference by  73 – 99.  The bonus of travelling that far for many of us is to enjoy a excellent meal at Meson El Parado to make it a fine day out regardless.

Friday 9th and the Seagulls were away to Vista Bella Picadors with a excellent 10-2 win.  In truth our losing trip only lost by 4 shots so it was a excellent performance all round.  The actual shot difference was 94-71 in our favour.

The Sharks were at home to Greenlands Oaks and lost 4-8, I would however like to congratulate our all ladies trip of Margaret MacLaughlin and Magaret Finlayson on their 24-13 victory, and it proved a fine welcome back for Tom Spencer as he was in the middle of Janet Parsons and Mike Stone a winning trip scoring 27-17.  Final shot difference being 81-105.

As this is the last report before Christmas and the New Year may I take this opportunity of wishing everybody and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and to all those at the Leader Newspaper for their continuing support for Bowls in Spain
