The sun’s out and with it plenty of bowls to look forward to. In the Club Competitions, congratulations go to Richard who is our first finalist in either the Men’s or Women’s draws. He sneaked past Simon by one shot to take his place in the final of the Men’s 2-woods. Most draws are now at semi-final stage with a few exceptions .. I have a handle on those that are behind schedule but ultimately may have to take a proactive step if holidays and other things get in the way. Finals weekend is just over 3 weeks away!
On a balmy Wednesday evening at Ashford we played the latest of our SML games. Like at the weekend against Stanwell, we shared the wins 2-2 on rinks and just fell short of an overall win losing on total shots by 3 for a 6-4 loss. It just goes to show that even when losing on a rink and you feel there’s no way back, every shot can count towards the overall result! The result maintains our 6th place in the league between Ashford and Stanwell, with two games left to play.
