Tuesday 18.04.2023: What a fabulous fun day we had today on our green, bring a friend day.
Hopefully we might get a few of our previously reluctant friends to join up after seeing that bowls can be a game of skill as well as great fun!
A bit unfortunate we chose a day of strong, almost impossible to read wind, but wind not withstanding we had a fantastic day of fun and friendship!

Lots of fun and a great afternoon out!
Many thanks to Woodgate Reality for the Sponsorship of our bowls day.
What a feast of bowls we had today, in a howling wind and overcast conditions, still some amazing games to get you off the nice warm couch and out into first cool day of the season.
Social pairs played as well as the Premier Event, the Ladies Open Singles Final.
Also a round game in the Mixed Pairs Competition.
We’ll start with the Ladies and what a game it was, our two top Lady bowlers battling it out over twenty seven ends for the title!
Meredith Taylor taking a very hard fought win over Donna Smith:
Meredith put the first point on the board, but Donna then went out to a lead of 5/1 on end 4.
Meredith then found her form and retook the lead on end 7, 7/5, she managed to keep the lead through the whole game but this wasn’t an easy game by any means.
Some amazing bowls played by both bowlers, great heads on every end and all in the howling wind!
By end 23, Meredith was stuck on 24 points with Donna, never one to give in on 16 and climbing back.
End 26 Meredith 24, Donna 21!
The 27th end was a cracker, as exciting as any seen on our television!
Donna, who played out of her skin, held 4 which would have given her the win.
However Meredith with one last bowl to play, backed herself to the hilt and put down a weighted shot taking the kitty and her bowl into the ditch to give herself that one last elusive point she needed to take the match!
What a game, a credit to both Ladies and an exciting game for the crowd of onlookers!
Thanks to Suzanne Weir who scored the game and also to Robyn Bishop who was the Umpire for the day.
The second exciting game for the day was in the Mixed Pairs Competition between Gordon Nuttall and Jane Herd-Evans taking a win over Trevor and Lesley Christensen.
The first end saw the Christo’s put the first point on the board…..and there they stayed for 7 long ends while Gordon and Jane wizzed up to 11.
The Christo’s then got their act together and started the long claw back into the game, again the roaring, swirling wind didn’t help!
A 6 by the Christo’s on end 15 took the score to 18/14 in Gordon and Jane’s favour however they then were stuck on 18 for 5 ends until end 18 when the Christo’s took a slender lead of 1 for the second time during the match!
End 19, score 19 all, end 20, 20/19 to the Christo’s, end 21 the decider saw Gordon, ever the champion put down an amazing bowl to give them 3 points for a win of 2.
An indication of the standard of the game was the amount of people who stayed to watch the exciting finish in what was by then a very cold uncomfortable wind!
Rink Draw Winners:
Competition Pairs: Jane Herd-Evans, Gordon Nuttall
Rink 11: Fiona Dowling, Oyster Dowling
Mixed triples, paddle pop draw:
Not great numbers on our green today, properly had something to do with the raging wind still around at the moment!
Those that did brave the conditions had a great afternoon of social bowls.
Winning rink draw:
Rink 4: L. Judy Stanley, 2. Fiona Dowling, S. Trevor Christensen
Rink 6: L. Jane Herd Evans, 2. Marilyn Mullins, S. R. willikers (visitor)
