On Saturday 3rd of August many Swanage bowlers competed in the men’s and women’s Two Woods day.
In the men’s competition the experienced Mike Keats beat three good opponents to take his place in the final where he took on Brian Beeston. The final was a very close game with Brian’s final wood of the day falling a centimetre short of winning the game. So the cup went to Mike Keats who bowled consistently well through a long day and many many ends. Congratulations Mike.
In the Ladies competition the inexperienced Nadine Evans won through to the final where she played multiple champion Uta Keats. Nadine was bowling very well and took the scalp of Uta for a well deserved trophy, congratulations Nadine.
A much needed lunch was provided by Linda so many thanks to Linda and to Barrie who organised the competition.
Please be aware that today’s men’s match at Wimborne in the B&D League has been postponed.
Graham had a call from the Wmborne captain to say their green was flooded and it was pouring down over there.
After trying to re-arrange for this coming Monday , Wimborne have now informed us that this is not now possible as another match had been re-arranged for then.
Graham will now try to agree a date and time in the next couple of weeks to play the game.
We’ll keep you posted.
Swanage Bowls Club now has no less than eleven sponsors.
Your support of Swanage Bowls Club is very much appreciated.
Many thanks to Kath for confirming existing sponsors and adding a few new ones.
I’m sure others were probably involved in securing sponsorships so thanks to everyone involved.
Our sponsors can be found on our sponsors page
Swanage Bowls Club sent a mixed team of 16 to Pelhams Bowls Club for the traditional pre-season friendly and came back with the shield following a narrow 69 – 67 win.
The 1st Bowls Dorset League match of the season was also won by the Swanage Men’s team (pictured) this time against Wimborne at Beach Gardens by 8 points to 2.
The ladies team opened their season with an away match at Broadstone where they too got off to a flyer with a 7 points to 4 win.
So a great start to the season for Swanage Bowls Club and lets hope it continues through the summer and we have some nice weather to enjoy this lovely sport.
SWANAGE BOWLING CLUB
Extraordinary General Meeting
Saturday 5th January, 10am. Beach Gardens
Swanage Bowling Club Management Committee, recommend we rescind the
vote to replace the green with an all-weather surface, taken some 3 years ago, as we do not think it will happen.
We would strongly, therefore, recommend that we replace the poor surface with a level and better grass surface, at a much lower cost.
This after securing a lease on the green and surrounds from the Town Council at a peppercorn rent.
Only full members are entitled to vote on this bowling matter in accordance with a motion agreed at the last AGM
