Stay Alert Stay Safe.
Members would very much like to get back to bowling, as early summer is a great time to be out on the rink. However, since we are regulated by the Federation Espanola de Bolos and the safety of our members is paramount, only time will tell when we are out on the green again.
MBC Honorary Life Memberships
MBC have four Honorary Life Members at present; John Smith, Colin Sears, Ron Potts and Douglas MacFarlane, who each received their award in December 2018. All four gentlemen, along with others, were Founder Members of Mazarrón Bowls Club in 2006.
John Smith was the first Captain to be nominated by MBC’s committee in 2007. Having bowled in the Newark area in England since 1985, John was an experienced candidate with a good knowledge of the rules of the game. When he left MBC a few years later to return to England, he presented a trophy which is played for each year – The John Smith Trophy Competition is always well supported by MBC members.
Colin Sear has done a great deal for MBC over the years. In 2009 he was elected to follow John Smith as Club Captain and along with then President Brian Tokely and Douglas MacFarlane, successfully petitioned for the club to join the Regional Leagues. In 2011 he was elected President of the Club. Colin’s wife Brenda was a supportive bowler and is well known for helping run our tea hut before the café was opened. Colin is proud to have served MBC and still today enjoys coming to watch our competitive games.
Ron Potts came to Camposol with his wife Pat in 2001. He bowled at Country Bowls BC from 2004 for a period, then moved to MBC at Hacienda. He is one of our longest playing members and our most senior. To this day he enters all Club events, supports the Club as a player in the league teams and enjoys the camaraderie, especially having a drink with friends after a game.
Doug MacFarlane and his wife Anne, who also bowls, have always been supportive members of MBC. Apart from bowling, Doug has served on the committee on and off for many years dating back to the first AGM when he became Communications/Publicity Officer. In 2009 he was elected Vice President and organised and introduced the ‘Triples League’. In 2014, after a period of illness, Doug returned as Treasurer followed by appointment as Secretary. Doug has won several trophies, continues as a loyal member of the league team and at 86 years of age is still very competitive and going strong – and trusts MBC will do likewise.
