Monday 13th June

Before we played in the South Alicante League it had been at least two years since we played at another club.  So on Monday 13th June we travelled to San Miguel and played a friendly game, we played a rink, trips and pairs. After the game we had a few drinks and catch up.

Although on these occasisions the score doesn’t really matter we were pleased with the result.

Monte Mar won on four rinks and San Miguel on two. 

Shots Monte Mar 96 – 97 San Miguel.

Points Monte Mar 8 – 6 San Miguel.

We look forward to the return game at Monte Mar on 20th June.
