On Monday the Pintos started the second half of the season by entertaining the San Miguel Orcas. A steady breeze gathered strength throughout the match, but it didn’t spoil the match. The Orcas conceded one rink, playing just four, whilst the Pintos won 3 of the remaining 4 and the overall shots. Ria Dukker, Malc Sykes and Diane Yates 38-3. Sue Ziepe, Steve Ziepe and Dave Haynes 20-12. Ann Abbott, Dolly Ford and Marion Haynes 20-17. Tony Abbott, Lesley Day and Bob Day 15-18.

Wednesday found our winter league team at Vistabella and although played good bowls they were against strong opposition, coming away without a win. But it’s just a game. Sheila Cox, Pam Harris, Diane Yates and Keith Longshaw 10-28. Brian Harris, Ron Greenstreet, Dave Haynes and Marion Haynes 15-25. Ria Dukker, Lesley Day, Judy Foley and Bob Day 12-24.

On Friday morning the Mustangs were entertained by La Marina Seagulls, my favourite away venue, as always they were excellent company and we had a good morning’s bowls. Mustangs took the rinks by 3 to 2 and lost the overall shots by just 6, a very good away result. Sheila Cox, Brian Harris and Keith Longshaw 18-17. Debbie Ham, Ron Greenstreet and Adrian Ham 13-28. Peter Blackburn, Malc Sykes and Diane Yates 11-16. Ann Abbott, Dave Baker and Steve Ziepe 22-16. Lesley Day, Pam Harris and Bob Day 22-15.
