The 26th of June, was the North/South finals of the Valencian Champions League (VCL) competition.
Mutual ground was at Mont y Mar Bowls Club with BBC winners of the North versus San Louis winners from the South. The games consisted of Mens singles, Ladies Singles, Pairs, Triples and Rinks.
Both the ladies and mens singles were down to the wire and very exciting to watch. Mary Cockell and Greg Sperring for the BBC, had superb games but lost their respective games by only a couple of shots.
BBC had to rely on the other games to win overall. There were Comprehensive wins by Jeff Richards who skipped the rinks with Brian Doggett, Trefor Evans and Gail Chick, Alex Fisher for the triples with Bob Cockell and lead Linda Richards equalled the score.
The result depended on the pairs games which was still being played after all the other teams had finished. What a game, our pairs duo of Carol and Dudley Davies went into the last end with score even on both sides..
Dudley drew into the head twice only to have his shot wood taken out, with his last wood he drew on top of the jack and although the opposition skip bowled a superb bowl the winner stayed where it was giving the BBC the Championship.
