We actually got in a full week of Bowls. Wednesday saw a grey, overcast sky but no wind giving us perfect conditions for bowling. The last match of the quarterfinals of the Club Minor Pairs was battled out as well as one game of Social Triples and four of Pairs. The few spits of rain on Saturday did not deter our intrepid bowlers. The two matches of the Club Minor Pairs Semi-finals were contested as well as three games of Mixed Social Triples and one of Pairs.
Wednesday 21st November was a damp, overcast day. 26 bowlers braced the Green. Only one Green will be in play for the next 3 months as the Green Keepers do their magic.

Rink 13 the first of our Semi-Final matches of the Club Minor Pairs. What a brilliant match. Tommy and Peter Smith got away to a marvellous start and were up 16/5 at the 10th end before Gary Way and Bert Madge slowly clawed their way back into the match to be down by only 18/20 on the penultimate end. The match was within their grasp! Unfortunately for them, they couldn’t achieve this goal and Tommy Smith and Peter Smith triumphed in a well-deserved win by 22 to 18 shots.
Rink 14 Again a match worthy of a Club Semi-Final. Matthew Goddard and Graham Eyre skipped out to a grand lead only to see Steve Hollington and Tony Mikus catch them up and put them to the sword. A fine finishing flourish saw Steve Hollington and Tony Mikus flung into the Final by 21 shots to 15.
