It’s not my want to push myself forward but I was really over the moon to win the Area 11 Final of the National Two Bowl Competition this morning 21-6. This means I’m through to the last 16 in the National Finals event in Nottingham for the first time. Weyhey!
I played like a drain as lead on Monday night (ask Steve G!) and I’m sure I will fall flat on my face again and probably return from Nottingham with my tail between my legs, but hey, it’s a “bowls” lifetime achievement for me. I have 10 hours’ overtime in hand at work so have requested permission to use them in lieu of payment. Fingers crossed.
If you don’t get going in 2 bowls (especially on a strange rink) quickly, the game is over far too soon and you feel like a muppet, so thank you for not pushing me for the date of today’s game. I know some of you asked and I was deliberately vague.
The first game is at Nottingahm IBC on Tuesday 29th March v Eastbourne’s competitor at 7.30 pm. 7.30? That’s getting on for bedtime!
