The men played two games this week, both in the Bowls Dorset Men’s League and both against Branksome Park. Firstly on Monday at Branksome, as the fixtures and secondly at Swanage on Thursday, a re-arranged game due to a flooded green.
On Monday we lost 52 shots to 55, winning on only one rink, that of Roger Senior, Graham Smooker, John Brudenell and skip Terry Buck 20 shots to 17. Again, on Thursday we lost 47 shots to 58, winning on one rink, that of Tony Bell, John French, Barrie Tatman and skip Brian Beeston 20 shots to 14. Only 2 points per game this week.
On Wednesday the Ladies travelled to Poole Park for their Edna Paisley League game. This is the one we won overall by 36 shots to 32 and on one rink, so 4 points to us. The winning rink was that of Connie Palmer, Ro Bibby and skip Jean Thomas 20 shots to 13 a sound win.
On Saturday we held our internal 2 wood knockout competition. We had 16 entrants for the men’s game and 10 for the ladies, the final games will be played in September during our finals weekend. Those going forward will be Gordon Wallis Vs. Clive Bryceson and Lil Bell Vs. Judy Smooker.
