BE National Men's two Rink Competition v St Ann'e Park Bristol: We lost 22- 27 :- Malcolm Dorrington's rink lost 12 - 15 having been nip-and-tuck throughout and Tony Watt's rink lost 10 - 12 having been just behind all evening. In fact, on one end we were holding five until Tony's last bowl turned it into one. Tony's opposite number was very good. More often than not we were holding until he changed it. They scored one 2 and the rest were singles. C'est la vie.

Scroungers - A Roll Up with Points and Penalties
Our first game of this new fun game was well attended by 36 members. The briefing on how to play was interesting,probably confusing, but soon became clear when 7 rinks started to play.
Lots of laughs, lots of barracking and some good bowling. Penalties galour soon made members realise just how many silly mistakes they make during a game and many finished with a minus score.
The overall verdict was....it is different.......we'll give it another go!

Our Opening Day was held on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
60 members, the biggest number for many years, took part in the traditional President v Captains Opening Day Match.Some members having to play half a game to accommodate all across 7 rinks.
The result was a win for The President, Mike Adams 137 - 114 but a consolation was a win for the Club Captain Ken Whatling, on the President's rink.
An enjoyable supper was served to even more members, including many new members. Everyone looks forward to an enjoyable - more normal- year of bowls!
