Below is my report from the final yesterday and my thoughts on today’s event. A picture is included from today.
Last weekend saw the last of the finals at Horsham Bowling Club that were held over from 2020. This time it was the Championship Pairs played on the Saturday between Anna Bishop and Kelly McCartney against Malcolm Curtis and Paul Davies. Played over 21 ends, Anna and Kelly were soon in front leaving Paul and Malcolm trying their hardest to catch them. The match was played in a very good spirit with some good bowling to entertain their watching Club mates. Despite their best efforts, Paul and Malcolm just fell short losing the match 17-22. Already, the three internal competitions have begun for this season with many bowlers involved in all three.
All thoughts of serious competition were put aside on the Sunday when the Club house was full of laughter. A team event organised by Wendy Smith and Mike Wilson, based around six reindeer names, brought out some very entertaining costumes and for the 24 bowlers taking part it was a very enjoyable day. The bowling for the day was split over five rounds with each team of four playing the other five. There has to be a winning team in this format, and that was Mike and Wendy with Anna Bishop and Dennis Masini. As the day was such a success, it is likely to happen again next year.
Thoughts now turn to next year when the serious competitions begin again in the League and also for the teams taking part in County Competitions at Westergate. So there is much to keep the members busy until April.
