Annual Bowling Tour Reports
2019 - TORQUAY
We left Bredon at 8.00 am on Monday and after a nice trip to Torquay we arrived in time to grab a sandwich before walking down to play a match at Kings B C whose green looks out over Torbay.
They decided not to select any of their International players, what a mistake as we ran out winners by 108 to 90. Dave Doyle assisted by Leslie Hine, John Woodcock & Keith Davies produced the performance of the day so little Si was presented to them together with a garland which they had to wear until the next day.
On Tuesday morning we took a trip to Brixham where we were able to stroll for a short while in the lovely fresh air and fishy smells. We played a match at Torbay Country B C and what an absolute pleasure it was.. We won the 9 rink match by 197 to 138. They were by far the friendliest team that we played against and I would like you to read the following. The highlight of the day was without doubt the last few ends as Moz, Jeff, Kate and John Doody battled for the right to have little Si for the night. At the end of the match it was the Rink of Ash, June, Barb and Moz who triumphed. Much to the pleasure of the whole Bredon Team.
On Wednesday morning we took a trip to Teignmouth then after a stroll in the sunshine we went to play Torquay BC. We managed to win again by 126 to 117. Martin, June (again), Speedy and George were today winners of Si and their garlands.
On Thursday we went to play Chudliegh B C who had visited us last year and it was great to renew acquaintances with them again. The match was played in good spirit with plenty of banter and laughter. Winning again for the fourth time 116 to 104.
