This year’s Lunch and Bowls had to be postponed 24 hours due to the weather forecast for Sunday. This proved to be a good decision since it rained most of the day on Sunday but stayed dry for us on Monday.
Everyone who attended had a good time, with 52 people participating in the round-robin double bowls competition and settling down to a fantastic lunch provided by Members.
The bowling was eventually won by an out-of-club team comprising Marion Pritchard (Malpas BC & I) and David Taylor (Wem BC).
Congratulations to them and well done to the runners up of Anne Wilson (Chester Rd BC) and George Hall (Malpas BC &I).
Thanks to everybody involved in the organising of the day and especially to Ann Mitchell who organised the lunch and John Mitchell in charge of the bowling competition.
Photos of the day can be seen in the photo gallery.
Looking forward to our next social event which will be President’s Day.
The greens are both parched at the moment like everywhere else and running super fast. A lot of jacks and woods are running off and games are taking an age to play with players having to wait for woods to trundle to a halt. I’ve never seen jacks and woods turn so much on this green. Still, I think it’s better than the flooding in April.
After what seemed like freezing weather on Monday evening and wet weather on Tuesday afternoon, the teams have at last had some decent weather tonight, Thursday. It had been a beautiful hot sunny afternoon and the Division 7 teams were looking forward to their local “Derby” to kick off their season, with the Men’s D team at home to the Mixed Team. The green was flooded in sunshine instead of water as the games got underway and everyone had a most enjoyable evening. The match was won by the Men’s D team but the mixed team put in a good performance with their best performance of the night coming from Peggie. Well done Peggie! Let’s hope the weather stays fair for the foreseeable future.
