MONTE MAR BOWLS CLUB

RENTAL AGREMENT REACHED WITH THE OWNER

The Club Captain Chris Merry and I were delighted to be able to advise Members that as from 1st October we have concluded and signed an Agreement with the Owner to rent the rink and additional facilities to enable bowling to continue at Monte Mar.

The discussions were extended as a result of the virus, but we believe we can now look forward to a positive for Monte Mar Bowls and Social Club.

We will of course keep Members informed of subsequent developments and look forward to their continued support.

MIXED PAIRS EVENT

Saturday 10th October

A three wood mixed pairs competition was held at the club. This event should have been staged in the Spring but was delayed due to Covid-19. Twelve teams entered the competition, playing two games against drawn opposition with the results entered onto a master score sheet. At the last moment a scratch team of two men was co-opted for the competition as a result of illness, their score was discounted as it was not a mixed team. After the game we all went to one of our sponsors for a meal. This was followed by Club Chairman, Chris Harding announcing the winners, Lynda Saunders and John Hunt and presenting them with a bottle of drink each. Joint second were the teams of Wendy and Iain Sheridan and Wendy Latham and Paul Dodd.The day was enjoyed by all who took part.
