Triples Feast at Miraflores!

The Miraflores Drawn Triples competition took place this week in wonderful balmy weather conditions. With a good entry and some hotly fancied triples being drawn we looked forward to a feast of quality bowling. The early rounds saw some very closely contested matches and both semi-finals watched by a large group of spectators could have gone either way, but in the end the teams of Carol Frost, Nancy Shaw & James Tyrer and Joyce Carr, Tom Cordner & Brenda Collier won through.

Finals day arrived and again there were a large group of people watching with standing room only in some places. Joyce and her team got their noses in front early on but Carol and her team kept plugging away so that after 9 ends the score was 9-8 to Joyce. In the 10th end Carol’s team picked up a 5 to take the lead for the first time but Joyce’s team won the next 2 ends to keep the score close at 13-12. Carol, Nancy and James then had a run of winning ends to take an unassailable 24-13 lead after 17 ends at which point Joyce conceded defeat. Both teams received warm applause from the crowd for their efforts. Nancy was defending her title, but this was a first final for both Carol and James who will now take their places on the honours board.

The largest open bowls competition on the coast the Miraflores Open will be starting on Saturday 11th November. There will be events in three disciplines namely Mixed Triples, Mixed Pairs and Open Fours (a new event for this year). We are delighted to have 2 major sponsors in place, namely Ibex Insurance and Currencies Direct both of whom will have representatives on site to answer questions about their companies to both players and spectators. The event runs through to Sunday 19th November with entries closing on 3rd November. Contact the club (mirafloresbowls@hotmail.co.uk) if you want to take part.  

Spectators are welcome at all times and we have a fully stocked bar with food available to satisfy everybody's needs. Sunday 19th November which is finals day will feature all 3 finals and is normally a very popular event for spectators, especially the post final presentations and scorecard draw with prizes from local businesses for all entrants who are present, don't miss it!! This year we will also have a guest of honour at the presentations, Nuria Rodriguez who is the Sports Councillor for Mijas.
