Another 5 rink team from Winslow was welcomed to Chandos Park by Captain Norman. Once again we played 18 ends straight through as is the practice at Chandos.

This was probably the closest match I have been involved in with all 5 rinks having very close games.

The highest scoring triple scored 18 shots while the lowest scoring triple scored 14 shots. Probably more by chance than design, when the game ended Winslow had not lost on a single rink but only won by 6 shots.

For those interested the scores were 16:14, 15:15, 16:15, 17:15 & 18:17. As you can see every head to head went down to the last bowl of the rink – you can't get much closer than that!

We had 2 highest winning rinks this week, congratulations to Jeanie, Mike & John Gomersall and Roger P, Steve & Jef for winning by just 2 shots.

The rink of Rosie, John Jeacock & Len are certainly worthy of a special mention as they fought back from 1:13 down after 8 ends to win 18:17 by scoring a 3 on the last end.

This week my thanks go to

  • All the members of Chandos Park who prepared the green and the refreshments and Cheryl for running the bar

  • Victor for stepping up from reserve to play for our opponents when they had a player drop out at short notice

  • Lucy for making her first appearance of 2023. We look forward to seeing her on the green representing the club again very soon

  • Norman and Colin for completing their game as a pair for the last 4 ends when their skip was beaten by the heat of the day

Thanks and well done to everyone involved in another enjoyable afternoon of bowls
