Saturday 1st December

Monte Mar staged its annual 4231 team event. Teams of five players contested a series of games over the day with singles and rinks played before lunch and pairs and trips played in the afternoon. After the first series of games most teams had gained two points and so the eventual winner was too close to call. After the afternoon series there were two teams who had finished with six points and the eventual winners were decided on shot difference. Following the final games, the teams and spectators went to LoungeD for a hot and cold buffet and the presentation. Here Club Chairman Chris Harding presented prizes to the winning team of Alan Ashberry, Ronnie Cairns, June Young, Phil Goble and Dave Melville. He thanked the organizes for a successful event and all the players. All the participating players, whether winners or not, had a great enjoyable bowling day.
