The CAA 3-2-1 Competition was held at Indalo Bowls Club from the 29th

Until the 31st March, twenty-two teams from Indalo, Almeria, Cabrera and Mojacar bowling clubs, split into four groups of 5 or 6 teams, playing each other. Each team played six ends with a triple, followed by a pair ending with a single. Played as a round -robin with each discipline gaining two points for a win, one for a draw and two for an overall win for each match. 

Friday 31st the semiís and finals took place. Tony and Mary Mullen with Dave Brannon were the winners over Doug, Mo Frith and substitute Ray Male. In the other semi-final the team of John, Sue Mannall and Jan Dando came out the winners against Jill, Andy Cooper and Doreen Hall.

The Final was a classic to watch. The Triples were a nip and tuck game resulting in a draw at 4-4. The Pairs was very similar and drew again at 3-3. All now depended on the Singles between John Mannall and Tony Mullen. The high quality of play continued but Tony was unable to overcome the pressure of Johns play, who ended winning 8-5 and of course winning the Championship with his wife Sue and Jan Dando.

On completion of competition David Horton, President of Indalo Bowling Club Presented the Trophy and prizes. Before this he thanked Ruth Compton for the organisation and running a very successful 321 competition. He also thanked the Indalo committee for their help in ensuring everything went smoothly, the bar staff for keeping us all refreshed and finally Colin Wright, John Sephton and Ken Richardson for umpiring.
