Ladies Charity Triples series of games continued against Cabrera, Indalo, Mojacar and ourselves. These games are thoroughly enjoyed by our ladies. Monies raised by selling raffle tickets for superb prizes to be presented at the annual ladies only dinner at Bellavista Restaurant on Tuesday 10th March. A big thank you goes to Eileen Phoenix who works hard to keep these events going.
This month were our regular visitors from the France, Perigord B.C thoroughly enjoyed themselves playing in the various club competitions and roll ups. We also had to two very pleasant days competing against them on the 10th and 13th of February. Results were not important.
Finally please don’t forget full competition reports, photographs and schedules of all competitions will be found on our website, www.bowlingalmeria.com Whilst writing I must add that if more members used our website there would be less disappointment for members unable to be around when the entry sheets are produced. Very often members who return to UK or holiday elsewhere and would have been available when the competition/s are held, could use the information on website. They then can inform me or John Fitzgerald that they would like to be added to the entry list and be included in the competition schedule.
