MONTE MAR BOWLS CLUB
On Wednesday 21st October a drawn Australian Pairs event took place. Twelve teams were drawn from the list of entries. Each team played two games of twelve ends against drawn opposition. The results were based on the amount of shots scored over the two games. After the completion of the games the winners, with a shot total of thirty six were Cindy Bedford and Neil Crawford. The Club Chairman announced the event winners following a lovely buffet. Another great day at our club.
On Sunday 25th October
The monthly chicken run was played in lovely sunshine attended by the maximum thirty players. The table top sale was once again very successful with all proceeds going to the club, thanks to everyone for their support. Yvonne Yarrow won the ladies chicken and Chris Merry the mens. The eggs were won by Pauline Merry and Jean Chamberlain who drew and Colin Bedford. The Chickens were donated by Jim Shearing and the eggs Julia and Ian Hamilton.
A good final week in October for the Matadors with a good win against San Miguel Boxers 8 – 4 on points and 99 – 89 on shots. A very competitive match played in a good attitude by all the players of both teams.
A different start to November for the Matadors 8 – 4 defeat to Emerald Isle Moonrakers. The high light of the match was a hot shot by the Matadors team of Sheila Roberts, Tanya Oliver skip Phil Goble this means they scored with all nine bowls on one end, so well done to them and all the so far this season.
On Monday the Toreadors had a home match against Greenlands Beech and it turned out a very good day winning on all five rinks and the overall shots. Very well done to everyone and a special mention to our top winning rink with forty two shots, Sue Bounds, Yvonne Yarrow skip Neil Crawford. A good day to be the Captain of the Toreadors.

On November 10th we had our annual shopping trip to La Zenia. Due to Covid 19, we had to restrict the number of people attending. After the shopping we all went to the restaurant where we had a delicious lunch. Captain Chris Merry thanked all the staff at the restaurant and the ladies of the social committee. Another lovely day enjoyed by all who attended.
As all the leagues have been cancelled until further notice due to Covid 19, we are holding in house competitions. The first competition was Toreadors v Matadors the Toreadors played as the home team, (they had to buy the drinks!!). Everyone enjoyed the mornings bowling which ended in a good result, once again a draw. After the game nearly everyone went to the Belfry for lunch and of course a few drinks.
