We also had to two very pleasant days competing against them on the 8th and 20th February. Results were not important but Almeria were quite successful.
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 Colin Wright that they would like to be added to the entry list and be included in the competition schedule.
