Its back to business this week for the LLB winter leagues and the Flamingos were looking forward to testing the new carpet at San Miguel for the first time, however the Greengauge carpet was much slower than the Dales which we are used too. Only one rink mastered the surface and collected 2 points, Clive Hoyal, Trish and Peter Dix maintained their form to win 24 shots to 11, overall shots 60 t0 94.

Meanwhile the Seahawks entertained Greenlands Chestnuts and took advantage of the quick home surface on a fresh sunny morning running out winners 8 points to 4, shots 112 to 80. Winning rinks were Sue Hudson, Del Gunning, Dean Webb 31 to 6, Ben Noke, Geoff Eggleton, Ray Robson 22 to 15, Phil Newham, Nick Mildon, Peter Whitehall 32 to 13,

On Friday in the Southern League Vistabella made the trip down into Murcia with a very experienced team and the Geckos had a fight on their hands, in a tight game it went down to the last bowl finishing 77 shots each with Vistabella winning on 3 rinks to take the game 7 points to 5. Winning rinks were Clive Hoyal, Barry Evans, Ray Robson 28 to 8, Del Gunning, Andy Failes, Peter Whitehall 15 to 14.

The Panthers had to set their alarm clocks for the early morning trip up to Montemar for their game and did not disappoint coming away with a great 10 points to 2 win, shots 88 to 73. Winning rinks were Sylvia Rennie, Dave Belton, Jim Rennie 20 to 7, Liz Mildon, Nick Mildon, Kevin Storey 21 to 17, Colin Roberts, Peter Robins, Dean Webb 16 to 15,
