Santa Maria Challenge March 1,2,4 &5 March 2017

Four days of lovely sunny weather were enjoyed by the entrants of the Santa Maria Bowls club competition. Several pairs games were very closely fought with some pairs only being victors by one shot. Freda Mitchell and John Winslow from Santa Maria just beat Juan Abeal and Neil Stanton from Benalmadena 20 shots to 19. Another Santa Maria team of Simone Morgan and Pat Fisher just lost by one shot to Geoff Edginton and Pat Baker from Don Pablo. Margaret and Gordon Kain from Miraflores were 16 to 5 down on the 10th end against Barbara Bartlett and Mac Farlow from Benalmadena. Margaret and Gordon scored on the next 8 ends but could not catch Barbara and Mac who held their lead to win 16 15. Unfortunately none of these players reached the final but Jenny and Garry Aldridge were beaten in the final by Sandra Lewis and Andy Salmon 10 shots to 17.

The triples final was between Dine Warn, Geoff Hall and Lynda Hall from Miraflores who scraped into the final with a one shot victory over Sue Pritchard, Billy Mulcahy and Alex Bradley who had a 18 3 lead but lost 20 -19.  Simone Morgan, Pat Fisher and Craig Lewis from Santa Maria after the 7th end kept the pressure on to win the title by 21 shots to 13.

All winners and finalists were presented with their trophies and Avalon funeral Services were thanked for their sponsorship.

Exciting news at the club is that a new carpet will be laid in the summer ready for the new season commencing in September, so if anyone is interested in joining us you will be very welcome at Santa Maria bowls club in Elviria, so if you would like to try bowling with us please give Susan a call on 664068020 for full details of the club days on Tuesday, Thursdays and Sundays but the club will be open 7 days a week from 10am every day from 1st September for casual and social bowling.
