422 COMPETITION Saturday 16th February On a lovely sunny day we held a 4-2-2 competition where six teams of four bowlers played a game of rinks in the morning then a game of pairs in the afternoon. Everyone involved enjoyed a great day of bowling. After the game we all retired to LoungeD for a drink, thanks to Lou and Ged for providing the nibbles. Juani from Salvum Clinic presented the the winning team Lynne Armitage, Danny King, Pauline and Barrie Woodfine with the cup and vouchers for Kameeleon Bowls.
BEGRIEVEMENTS We have two items of sad news to report this month. We recently were informed of the death of Ethel Finan. Ethel was a regular bowler for several years until she was forced to return to the UK due to ill health. You may also recall that last year Pat Groves, a long-term social member of our club, returned to her native Yorkshire following a serious fall. Sadly, Pat also passed away recently. Our thoughts are with both their families.
