Monte Mar Bowls and Social Club

Sponsored by The Belfry, The Pub, Bowling Abroad and Avalon


Monday Friday May 22nd - 26th

Members of Monte Mar along with some friends from Vistabella and La  Marina travelled down to La Posada and Saydo Bowls Clubs, situated in land from Malaga. We had three days in the company of both teams and made some new friends while there. Both La Posada and Saydo have four rinks  so we played morning and afternoon. Both clubs have excellent facilities, we are looking forward to La Posada visiting us in the near future.

We then moved on to Indalo for two days to play in the Challenge Cup and meet up with some friends. Unfortunately the wheels fell off and we lost the cup.

Once again thank you all for five great days.


Saturday Monday June 3rd - 5th

For the second year running Monte Mar Bowls Club were successful in winning the three day La Siesta mixed trips competition. The team consisted of Jean and Rod Chamberlain and skip Bill Young. After winning all their group games they came up against another Monte Mar team in the semi-finals, Ronnie Cairns, June Young and skip Dave Melville. It was a close fought game but Jean, Rod and Bill were the winners, they then had to play one of Siesta's strongest teams in the final. La Siesta needed two to draw on the last end, they were holding two but Bill with his last wood drew the shot to win the competition. Well done to Monte Mar.


Sunday June 11th

Fifty nine bowling and social members attended a lunch at La Cova in El Campello. The lunch was booked for 2.30 but the members wanted to have a stroll along the sea front so we left Monte Mar at 12.30. The food was delicious and the drinks flowed freely. Once again a good time was had by all. A big thank you to the social committee.


June 17th - 19th

The presidents cup took place at Quesada. It was a two wood trips competition held over three days. The team from Monte Mar of Ronnie Cairns, June Young and Val Hignet reached the final on the Monday. Ronnie had a meeting so Howie Williams stood in for him. A big thank you to Howie for helping Ronnie out. The final was great to watch, some  very good bowling from both teams. Monte Mar lost the game 16 13 to a strong Quesada team, but they did not let Monte Mar down.
