BOWLS NEWS

MEN’S BOWLS

Remember the AGM on the morning of Thursday the 19th April (not 20th as in the fixture book) at 10 am. All vacancies for the new 2018-19 committee need to be filled. Please append your names as proposers, seconders, and acceptors on the available list. The new committee will also have to decide on how many teams to enter in the two Pennants competitions next year so please add your names before heading off to warmer pastures.

LADIES BOWLS

After some urgent phone calls to replace three players who were unable to participate due to illness, the competition started almost on time, thanks to Martin Osborne, Maureen Hines and Andre Gil not only for their willingness to participate but the very short time it took them to arrive.

We had 12 teams playing three games both days, with Janice Hoover replacing  Maureen on Sunday, and there were some excellent scores throughout . It wasn’t until the completion of the final game that we finally were able to decide the winners, who ended up winning 5 of their six games, closely followed by three other teams winning four of their games.

The winners were Ian Creagh and Christine Coyle with 15 points and 28 shots up, followed by Runners Up Jem Coupar and Toby McCarthy with 15 points and 13 shots up. Well done all players.

Many thanks also to Chef Callan for supplying the tasty snacks at the end of the day.

Wednesday’s social bowls saw Denise Mott and Lorraine Lewis win both games with 9 shots up, closely followed by Jill Winter and Marie Paterson also winning both games and 4 shots up

Next Wednesday’s game players will be competing for the Match Committee’s Trophy. Hope to see you all there as this will be our final competition for the 2017 /2018 Bowls season

Wednesday 18th  is the Ladies AGM at 10.30am followed by a light lunch supplied by Callan, so hope to see everyone present. Nominations have been received for all positions except Secretary so no excuses for not attending!

Max Foley and Samuel Siegrist won the boys 12 under doubles and Sam Jennings was runner-up in the 12under singles. Sam was one of the younger boys in that division so a great result. We were represented in finals across all divisions.
