The scene was set for a very enjoyable afternoon of bowling. Unfortunately, some of our gentleman bowlers took fright and withdrew. Was it because of the World Cup or was it out of fear!!! Only they know.
The groups featured several husband and wife teams with nerves fraying in anticipation and trepidation. The greens were running very fast and we saw some excellent bowling.
The Group winners on green 1 were Barbara and Alan Burns who were the only team to win all 4 games.
On green 2, although there were some very tight games, the Group winners were Linda Slater and Denny Balmer who also won all 4 games.
Of the two group winning teams, Barbara and Alan had the best overall aggregate score and hence received the Mixed Pairs Trophy for 2018. Well done to you both although I don’t believe Alan’s comment that he carried Barbara all afternoon!!
In the bar, Club President Eric Henderson presented Alan and Barbara with the trophy where everyone then enjoyed a buffet, kindly sponsored by John Derbyshire, Dennis Glynn and Tony Sweeney, and a well-earned drink.
