A big THANK YOU to Ben for organising the Friday Triples.
This event should be an enjoyable low key pleasure, even if there is a trophy at the end of it.
I’m really glad that there have been a goodly number of people signing up this year, so that there can be 2 games every Friday. You now have over 2 weeks to get your teams organised, before the opening games. Good luck! And thanks again.
For team details and dates see members page.
The Men’s Top Team beat Callington last night in an exciting match and are through to the
final of this competition.. We won by 3 matches to 2 with everything hanging on the final
rinks match which we finally won 23-13 after being stuck on 20 for about 8 ends.
Well done to Badger who won his 2 wood singles-again, to a new partnership of Tim and
Mike who won their pairs and to Rob’s rink of Brian, Chris and Joe.
We are still waiting to hear who are opponents will be in the final and which green we will
be playing on but hope to have support from other club members. Thanks to those who
supported us at Liskeard last night.
SUPPORT US IF YOU CAN
The men’s team are through to the semi-final of Top Team and will be playing
Callington Bowling Club at Liskeard on Tuesday 2nd July at 6.00pm.
The match consists of two singles,two wood and four, a pairs match and a triples and rink.
Come and support – Liskeard Bowling Club will be great hosts and have a bar and good
spectator viewing and an excellent green. All we require is some good weather.
Badger & Ian Burnard have successfully won through to the Group Semi final of The Benevolent Pairs after a nail biting final end it was standing at 19 – 17 to the opposition but with Ian bowling his last wood he perfectly removed their nearest wood thus picking up 3 winning shots
Commiserations to Caz and Rene who lost their County Quarter Finals 15-16 and to Annie who lost in her latest round of the Kernow Cup 15-22
In another exciting match in cold and blustery conditions the Men’s Top Team beat
Saltash 3-2 to go through to the semi-final of the competition to be played at a neutral
green. Wins for Shane and Badger in the singles and for Rob’s rink of Brian, Joe and Roy
secured the win with Shane winning on the last wood.
At Bude yesterday, in the Croydon Mark’s competition, the match was tied after all three
rinks had played 21 ends and the totals had been added up.
This resulted in the three rinks returning to the wet and windy green to play a final end
each with Bude winning by 2 shots. In difficult conditions, it was a match played in great
spirit and well done to Shane’s rink who won their match after 21 ends and the extra end.
Congratulations to Jacky, Rene, Julia and Annie who beat St Austell to progress to the final of the Captain’s Shield.
