On Tuesday our VCL team played it’s rearranged match at home against Country Bowls, a tough game with Country Bowls taking the honours with their 4 rinks to El Rancho’s 1. But as we all know the result is often contrary to the effort and skill put into the play.

Mens singles: Keith Longshaw 10-21. Ladies singles: Diane Yates 21-6. Pairs: Peter Blackburn and Sheila cox 12 -22. Trips: Frances Johnston, Sue Ziepe and Steve Ziepe 8-37. Rinks: Judith Foley, Ron Greenstreet, Bill Johnston and Jim Eastwood 12-19.

Wednesday found our team playing host to La Siesta Parakeets in our last match of the league, taking 2 of the 5 rinks. Not a bad result, remembering that losing a match does not mean that you played badly.

Mens singles: Judy Foley 21-11. Ladies singles: Bill Johnston 7-21. Pairs: Bob Day and Mike Cox 17-22. Trips: Sheila Cox, David Haynes and Marion Haynes 14-8. Rinks: Peter Blackburn, Pam Harris, Lesley Day and Ron Greenstreet 5-33. Bowlers of all levels are welcome at El Rancho, for further membership information contact Sheila Cox at micksheilacox@gmail.com.
