There was a very comfortable win v London Civil Service yesterday afternoon. Good bowls and banter all round. Thanks to Kevin L and Gordon who stepped in to fill the LCS team vacancies. Thanks to Kevin for organising and to Jane on the bar. The mixed friendlies are good fun and there will be more next year.
Peter J & Gym had a walking-on-water game v Laurence & Peter T yesterday morning in the 2020 Club Pairs. It didn’t matter how close Laurence & Peter got to the jack because Peter or Gym just sneaked in with an even better shot! Well done to them and also to Tricia & Teresa who outbowled Tina & Dawn in the National Ladies Pairs. We held them for a while then dropped a 7 – not sure how that happened as our bowls had nudged some of theirs – obviously in the wrong direction! Goodluck to them in the next round – another Egham opponent.
It was also a silver medal for Steve G, Norman, Laurie & Mike C in the L&SC Single Rink v Herts. Hard luck chaps.
Despite winning the Potters tournament last week, all four of us couldn’t duplicate wins yesterday. That’s bowls!
The next round of the London & Southern Counties Challenge Shield is on Saturday 18th December v Watford – 2 rinks home, 2 away starting at 10.00 am.
