Second week of the outdoor season and the National Competitions have started already and all against Ashford teams!
Wins in the Mixed Pairs for Jean & Norman (23-9); by 4 shots, Ange & Dave P; and Sarah, Gym, Kevin L & Dawn in the Mixed Fours (16-15). Good luck in the second rounds.
With the number of competitions ramping up, please don’t forget to book your rinks on the Outdoor Rink Booking page. Of course we won’t know from day to day which way the green is running, so you’ll just have to guess which might be the best rink.
Please bear in mind that on Fridays from 5:00 pm, four rinks will be in use for the Friday night leagues and from Monday 16th, four rinks will be used for the Monday Afternoon Leagues.
We had such beautiful weather for the trials this morning. The day started with Terry M putting out the green, Norman making bacon sandwiches & Mike C his glamorous assistant serving teas and coffees; Jane behind the bar, and Chris Young with the Bowlswear Direct Roadshow.
The bowlers were looked after admirably and our thanks also to the Middlesex Executive and President Brian Hearn for all their work organising us into teams both morning and afternoon and then having to go home and sort out the strongest teams to represent Middlesex and in the Johns Trophy and Walker Cup – not an easy task at all! Team selection at any level is a pretty thankless task!
The temperature is due to reach 22C today, so don’t forget your suncream Those rays can burn even through clouds!
