The last week of bowling at the club, time to give the rinks a rest over the winter, however there is still a lot going on this week.

The spider ended was a tie, Barry’s W and K taking the wine.

Whilst that game was taking place on rink 6, rinks 1, 2 and 3 were taken over by the Cherhill scout group. this was a thank you and an introduction to bowls for the group, below are some photos, it was an interesting experience and they all appeared to enjoy themselves.

On Thursday in the morning it is the final of the Ladies 2 wood competition, followed in the evening by the Final of the Aussie Pairs Competition.

Friday is a free day, however Saturday is the official closing day with a mixed drawn triples competition, see separate entry for details.

On Sunday there was a friendly against Malmesbury on their artificial grass, apparently they are unbeaten at home since having the artificial surface done, we gave them a good run for their money but unfortunately lost, but it was a very enjoyable game.
