The weather stayed dry and mainly sunny and everyone was in good spirits before, during and after the game. Phew!
Great to have all 6 rinks full of bowlers enjoying the fun and trying their hardest to beat the opposition.
It was 3-3 rink draw – don’t listen to Norman!
The ladies had to borrow a couple of men to balance out the numbers and about 10 men volunteered. Ooh!
Thanks to Roy for setting up the green, to Sarah & Jacqui and Tony & Alasdair for meeting Ladies and Men’s Captains for the day. Thanks also to Jane behind the bar, to Ann Macey for selling more raffle tickets for the MacMillan Cancer fund-raising (draw on Saturday 30th at Race Night) and to all our visitors. Last, but by no means least, thanks to all the players both old and new for making it such an enjoyable occasion to round off the outdoor season not only with your playing but also for taking all the ditch mats and rink markers up and tidied away so that the new green keeping company can get to start on the autumn work this week.
We should also give a big thanks to Ray Verralls who has been the Outdoor Fixture Secretary as well as Indoor Fixture Secretary for the last few years. For various reasons, he is standing down from both posts so we’re on the lookout for a volunteer to take on the Outdoor Fixtures for next season (and there’s no time like the present to get the calendar started!).
