Country Bowls Club.  With Dennis Wade, John Mallet & Den Birkett

The San Luis Galaxies visited Country Bowls on Monday. A fantastic result for the Flamingos, although some tight games, they were triumphant, winning on all the rinks and coming away with a score of 14 – 0.

This result has put the Flamingos to the top of the league. Well done everyone.

Friday saw El Rancho Broncos arriving to play against the Cubs. After their first three matches of the season resulting in defeat, at last the Cubs came into their own. A great result, winning on all rinks.

Morale has returned and the score was 14 – 0. 127 shots to 61. Captain John Mallet is a proud man. Well done Cubs, your back on track.

Country Bowls Geckos travelled away to Greenlands Cedars for an afternoon match today. One of the toughest games for a while. Many of the games changed on the leader board several times during the afternoon.

As always, however, the determination and tenacity of the Geckos showed through and they held their nerve and used their improving skills to win on 4 rinks, losing by 1 shot only on another and came out victorious with a 10 – 4 win and a shot advantage of 105 to 97.

It also puts the Geckos into 4th place, equal in points to the third place team and only 2 points off the lead!! Come on Geckos!! Onwards and Upwards.
