This competition was played over 3 days at La Siesta, and is based on a Fours format on a round robin playing in 3 groups with the Winners of each group and the highest second team progressing to the semi-finals.
There was some excellent bowling throughout the Competition and the semi-finals consisted of the Quesada team of Terry Morgan, Steve
Hibberd, Sandra Heath and Carol Broomfield playing against the La Siesta four of Brian Harman, Pat Harman, Bill Jordan and Sue Jordan. This was close up to the 7th of the 12 ends when La Siesta dropped a 7, followed by a 3 on the next end from which they were never able to recover.
The other semi was an all Vistabella contest with Tony French, Martin Foulcer, Maggie Furness and Ian Kenyon against Beryl Regan, Jennie Bowman, Stuart Allman and Mike Regan. This was a closer game, but Ian’s team gained an early 4, after which they gradually increased their lead.
The final was a very close game with the lead changing three times during the first 8 ends, and at the end of the 10th end Quesada led by 1 shot, but picked up a 3 on the 11th , then on the last end Terry Morgan put his first bowl directly on the jack. This left Vistabella no option but to try to move it, but despite their best efforts they were unable to achieve.
Well done to Quesada for an exciting final. The presentation was made by Jean Cooper, Chairperson of Levante Lawn Bowls as well as President of La Siesta, who thanked everybody for their support and superb bowling, as well as Jim and Lyn for the excellent catering, and the Jordans for organising the event. Last, but no least thanks went to the Umpires for their attendance.
