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!
Thank you, Flo!
Well done Dawn what an achievement. Good luck at Nottingham very best wishes from both of us
Ian had a good win the club singles this morning.
Good luck and best wishes from me and all the Officers of Middlesex
Well done Dawn . Your a star
Thanks, Steve. I can be a cloud at times too!
Well done Dawn. Onwards and upwards! ?
Good to hear from you too!
Well done Dawn ??
I know this sort of success can be short lived, so just enjoying the moment for now!
Well done and best of luck in Nottingham!
Thanks, Peter. My opponent is also through in the main singles so will have had at least one more game in the green than I will have done when we meet!
