BOWLS: Latest News from Monte Mar Bowls Club, TRIP TO MOJACAR, Chicken Day…

Pauline, Jan and Chris


Each year our club play a bowls tournament with our good friends from the Indalo Bowls Club. This year it was our turn to visit Indalo at their bowls green near Mojacar. In total thirty of our members spent a long weekend  in Mojacar, from first to the third of June. We played two games of bowls, the Saturday afternoon and the Sunday morning. Unfortunately for us the home team were too strong and so retained the cup. We all enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank the Indalo Club for their hospitality and friendship. We would also like to thank the staff of the Hotel Puntazo II Playa, for looking after us so well.
