BOWLS: Latest News from Monte Mar Bowls Club, AUSSIE PAIRS, Trip to La Zenia…


3rd/4th November

Over the weekend the Monte Mar Club staged the annual Aussie Pairs competition. Twelve teams took part and after two days bowling five of them were equal having scored five points. The tournament was decided on shot difference and the eventual winners were Jan Gatward and Graham Smyth. The winning team was presented with their prizes by the Club Chairman, Chris Harding. After the competition on the Saturday the bowlers enjoyed a lovely buffet. A big thank you to Lou and Jed.


Saturday 10th November

Thirty two teams took part in the Aussie pairs at Bonalba, six of the teams were from Monte Mar Bowls Club. Once again it was a good day for Monte Mar, Diane Horsington and John Hunt were runners up by only one shot. Diane and John were very delighted, well done to you both.


Once again the shopping trip to La Zenia, organized by the ladies of the social committee was a great success. After all the shopping and a few pre lunch drinks it was off to La Cosecha restaurant in Beniofar, where everyone had a very enjoyable lunch. Thank you to the ladies of the social committee.
