This year the clubs annual bowls tour was to Weston-super-Mare, staying at The Ocean Hotel which is situated right on the seafront. The weather, despite being windy and with some showers, didn’t stop us playing all three matches without any interruption from the elements, as sunshine prevailed for all the games.

Our first match was at the Clarence Bowling Club, which has 3 greens and a clubhouse and facilities to be proud of.
That match was won by 108 shots to 100 (+8). The highest winning rink was Dave Sawyer, Elsie Taylor, Charlie Holley and Mike Petersen by 24-11.

The second match was at the Victoria Bowling Club, which was won by 134 shots to 86 (+48).

The highest winning rink was Mandy Rodway, Charlie Holley, Paul McGrath and Pam Willoughby by 29-12.

The third match was on our way home at Westlecot Bowling Club in Swindon. This match was lost by 95 shots to 112, but the hospitality was enjoyed by everyone as was the 2 course meal provided by our hosts.

The highest winning rink was Veta Bennett, Janet Hamilton, Bob Foster and Jim Feeley by 20-11.

Our thanks, once again, goes to Sue Feeley for all her hard work in organising the tour and finding us a lovely hotel in which to stay.
