Husband and Wife Team Triumph
The Richard Cooper Trophy, played on 25th June was won by Gillian and Harold Morris, with another husband and wife team, Jim and Alex Coughlan the very worthy runners-up.
This knock out match was played in blistering heat and at the end both of the finals couples had played 48 ends!! No mean feat when you are a pensionista!! The match was a straight 2 wood knock out competition, sponsored by Julie Cooper, whose husband, Richard died suddenly last June.
Summer evening bowling continues with many of the new members recruited from the Open Day coming along to practice and socialise afterwards. These evenings are becoming a very social occasion, although the bowling is taken seriously, albeit friendly. The socialising afterwards leads to making new friends and acquaintances for all. The bar is always open to provide hot and cold snacks and the odd cold beer and glass of wine!
With many changes in the Federating body, to which all Bowls Clubs in Spain have to belong, the Committee are working hard to ensure that all members know exactly what is happening and preparing timescales for registration and for the Club Championships and Winter Leagues.
After the long balmy summer and, with the slightly cooler weather in September, events start again. In September there will be an EGM to appoint a new Club Captain and Vice President and then in October, the Winter Leagues will start on a Monday and Friday, the interclub triples competition on a Tuesday and of course, the Club Championships.
Mazarrón Bowls Club are always at their home ground on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from around 6.30pm and we would love to meet you, so please come along for a chat and see what goes on.
