At the invitation of Craig Lewis, Club Manager, the
Coordinator for Malaga province Instructors Group, John
Carr, ran morning of intensive training for bowlers at
Miraflores BC in October. The weather was hot and
challenging, but participants from the host club & a
contingent from Mijas BC, were full of enthusiasm.
The subjects included: Casting the Jack,
Improving Weight, Using other bowls in the head,
Improving Line, Reading the Head & Building the Head. At
the break all assembled in the clubhouse for welcome
refreshments, where John Carr talked about the need for
concentrating on specific skills improvement, rather
than perpetual “roll ups”, involving mainly drawing to
the jack. Gordon Adams, President of the Malaga Umpires
& Markers group, then gave a brief but authoritive
dissertation on Etiquette and some of the more important
Laws of the Lawn Bowling sport.
Rink Marshalls, Barry Pemberton, Dennis
Hanley, Garry Aldridge, Sue Walker & Terry Morgan did an
excellent job as Rink Marshalls.
The attendees were:-
Christie, Barbara Dixon, Brenda Collier, Carol Wright,
Christine Peasay, David Peasay, George Christie, Hazel
Kilmartin, John Dixon, John Fairgrieve, Mike Kinane, Pam
Kinane, Sheila Graveling, Shirley Jackson.
Craig & Sandra Lewis performed their
customary role as excellent hosts.
