Country Bowls welcomed La Siesta Silvers on a beautiful dry Friday morning.
Both teams were poised to take the points and as the wind picked up, the individual matches were thrown into turmoil.
Rinks 5 & 6 both playing two styles of game and strategy and adjustments were the order of the day.
In the end it was 3 – 2 to the Silvers with the Cubs taking the shots by 1. 76 – 75.
Overall a great days bowling and a very fair 6 – 6 result.
Dean Webb, Derek Lewis & John Mallet

Well done Geckos.
El Rancho Bowls Club
Monday found the Palominos having a bye.
The Pintos played the Hawks at Horadada, with a stiff cold breeze bringing out the thermals and many layers, of course by the end of the match we had warmed up. The Pintos took a while to get used to the mat and in the end came away with two rinks, never a bad score away from home.In the afternoon the Raiders were at San Miguel playing their Pointers, which turned out to be a tough match, as we would expect as San Miguel always turn out a good team particularly with the home advantage, it’s a hard call. The Raiders came away without a point but were not shamed.
Friday morning found the Mustangs entertaining Emerald Isle Cavaliers on a wonderful morning with a stiff breeze, which made the bowling very tricky. Most of the way through the match the Mustangs were behind on all rinks, but came good to take 4 of the rinks and the overall shots by just the one shot.
The Broncos were at Horadada playing the Royals and put in a good performance to take 3 rinks, a very good away result.
The Rangers played the Conquistadors at Vistabella and were a trip short and no doubt the wind caused a few problems. They came away with one rink, but enjoyed the challenge.
The annual President’s versus Captain’s teams will be played on wednesday 6th February, all are invited to bring donations of non perishable foodstuff, toiletries and unwanted clothing for Reach-out a charity for the homeless.

Quesada Bowls Club Report by Dee Stephenson
In the South Alicante Winter League all 3 Quesada squads played San Miguel teams this week. Quesada Pearls travelled to San Miguel to play the Beagles for a morning of very competitive bowling. Due to illness, the Pearls were unable to field a full squad but they won on 3 of the 4 rinks played and achieved 68 to 66 shots before penalties of 2 points deducted. They’ve maintained their 4th place in the league, just one point behind 3rd place San Miguel Beagles.
Meanwhile on a lovely sunny morning perfect for bowling, the Diamonds entertained San Miguel Alsatians, currently a couple of places below them in the League, so a result was a priority for both teams. Quesada won 3-2 rinks but the shots went to San Miguel by the narrowest of margins 91-90. The points were drawn 6 each so the Diamonds maintained their position in the league.
The Rubies also hosted San Miguel – the Dalmatians. Not the best of days for the Rubies who lost the match 2 -10 and the shots were 65 to San Miguels 112. Onwards and upwards Rubies, plenty more matches to play!
In the Southern League, Quesada Swifts travelled to Mazarron for a sunny and warm days bowling. Another important league match between Mazarron the leaders and the Swifts in second place, so everything to play for. After a tough morning, Mazarron were victorious winning 4-1 rinks and 97 to 54 shots, winning the match 10 points to 2 and maintaining their lead at the top of the league.
In the Winter league, Quesada hosted Javea and the match ended in a draw 6 points each.
In the Federated 4’s, Quesada Panthers played San Miguel Mohawks. Quesada won the rinks 2-1 but lost the shots by one, 48-49, so the match ended in a draw 6 points each.
At Quesada Bowls Club we welcome both new and experienced bowlers. We’re a friendly club with a mixture of competition, league and casual players.
