w/c 26th May 2019 – all to play for!

Sunday brought the Tourist Trophy on a drizzly day, Here is the report from . The match concluded with a 3 shot aggregate win to Calne BC.

The away rink trailed for the whole match, but stayed positive throughout given that we were only half of the team. We rallied in the final stages to reduce the arrears to 24-17, a 7 shot defeat.

The home rink fought a much tighter affair for most of the game accelerated away to 21-11, a 10 shot win.

We now await the winners of Blue Circle v Warminster in the 3rd round.

Bank Holiday Monday, brought the crowds out at Calne Bowls Club, with lots of helpers, Martin G, Steve M, Mark R, Dave and Ian G, ……any more?

Have just been informed that the Glasses (plastic) from the Rec Club are now recyclable and need to be returned to the Bar, once the liquid has been consumed, this came from our correspondent on the Green on Monday.

Tuesday, with a scattering of showers, and 2 teams took to the rinks at Calne, unfortunately the Ladies, Yvonne and Martha lost their County Pairs Competition to a very strong Stratton Churchway pair, 10-26.They put up a good fight but it was not to be, next year Ladies.

The Men however, currently 2nd in the League took on 3rd place Trowbridge Town and ran out winners  22 -15, well done

On Thursday in the Men’s Mid Wilts Triples we entertained Winsley for our first home game of the season, eventually running out 80-51 winners (12-2 pts), notable event was Rod’s team narrowly missing a hot shot on the 15th end scoring 8 shots, well done Rod better luck next time.The catering for the evening was hot dogs, which appeared to be appreciated.Thanks Pip

Everyone appears to be enjoying themselves

Thanks to Martha and Gladys for there painting expertise.
