The Gran Alacant Mixed Rinks Competition was once again cancelled so we held a Trips Competition for club members. Twelve teams of three were split into two groups and each team played three games over the two days. Points were scored for every end won and for winning the overall game. Before the competition commenced we held a Spider which was won by Yvonne Yarrow. The winning team was Rita Towle, Ted Hyman and Dave Eades, well done to all!!! After the competition we enjoyed lunch at the Belfry which as usual was enjoyed by all. Cindy presented the winners with their prizes and the Chairman Chris Harding thanked Cindy the Belfry, and the ladies who had organised the cake stall and all who had took part.


The September chicken run was well supported with thirty two members taking part. The chickens were won by Julia Hamilton and Graham Smythe the eggs were won by Yvonne and Dave Yarrow. Thank you to Bill Winterburn who donated the chickens and Julia and Ian Hamilton who donated the eggs. Lynne Armitage won the football card with Wolves.


As the last ladies afternoon tea was so successful it was decided to organise another one. Once again it was very 

enjoyable the drinks flowed and a good time was had by all who attended. A big thank you to Sharan, Paul and Ruth and of course the ladies of the Social Committee.


Members were delighted to welcome Chris and Dave Roberts back to the Club in early October, after two years absence. Dave has been fighting illness in the U.K. for last two years and is now winning his battle. Dave managed to bowl for the first time since his illness. With the help of playing partners he managed twelve ends and really enjoyed being back on the rink again. We hope to see Chris and Dave back in Spain in November.


The next social event will be 9th November, shopping trip to La Zenia followed by lunch at La Cosecha.  Please check the club notice board for details.
