Life can be full of coincidences or come in 3’s, on Sunday 3 of us travelled to Calpe to play in a tournament and was very pleasantly surprised to find ourselves playing against a touring side from Switzerland.  The country only has 6 clubs mainly curlers who have taken to bowls when there is no ice, but they were all very enthusiastic and it proved a great day.


On Wednesday we played at home against a combined tourist team from Maryport in Cumbria and Clacton on Sea, Essex which proved to be a really fun day for everyone.  Thank you all for making the effort to travel and making our days more interesting.


Thirdly just to add to the coincidences we had a Swiss lady come down to our club for a few lessons from which we hope she will get the bowling bug.


This week’s league game was Monday afternoon at Vistabella with the following result, Trevor Hancock, Dave McGaw and John Rae, 16-14, Les Joynes, Jean & Don Fowkes 12-17, Alan Birch, Dave Joynes, Len Daniels 21-12, Trevor Stemp, Shirley Hadaway, Garth Slater 10-23, Anne Stone, Norman Ship, Margaret Finlayson 22-23, giving a overall shot total of 81-89 in Vistabella’s favour and overall points 4-8 to Vistabella.  But oh as last week that 1 shot made such a difference to the score.  Remember every shot counts.


Friday’s game is in the afternoon and unfortunately too late for this report and will be saved for next week.


Quiz night at the Paulo’s restaurant at the Sports Centre tonight, for anybody at a loose end for 7.00pm, where those ribs will be on offer again.
