Monday found the Raiders playing Montemar Matadors at home, slightly damp start turning into a windswept mat and soon it turned positively hot. But the strong side wind persisted to the end of the match, some shots were well adjusted by all bowlers, but we all had issue od bowls not coming into the head or speedily passing it by.

We did however have a good fun morning, with the Raiders taking the rinks 3-2 and the overall shots. Ria Dukker, Jean Giddings and Dave Giddings 29-8. Rose Passmore, Judy Foley and Keith Longshaw 10-22. Sheila Cox, Malc Sykes and Mike Cox 25-16. Chris Ziepe, Steve Ziepe and John Ziepe 15-16. Ann Taylor, Bob Taylor and Henry Ryder 17-13.

In the winter league on Wednesday, the Rowdies were at home to Javea/Calpe  a stronger team. But it’s important to just enjoy the occasion and company, with Javea/Calpe taking all the rinks. Ria Dukker, Lesley Day, Judy Foley and John Ziepe 17-29. Mick Higgins, Mags Higgins, Diane Yates and Henry Ryder 7-35. Sheila Cox, Rose Passmore, Pam Harris and Mike Cox 10-23. Bill Johnston, Frances Johnston, Derek Barker and Jim Eastwood 13-20.
