Almeria Handicap Triples Competition

Report by Vic Parsons, photo editing  by Amber Dineen & John Carr. 

This is the fifth year of this competition which commenced on 8th January and was played mainly on Monday afternoons. During that period of eight planned dates, the best five individual total scores was totted up. These were then drawn into two triples to play in the Final on Friday 2nd March.

The Final six successful members were the Winners, Keith Minnett, Brian Hallam and Joe Sibley who were drawn to play Austin Crilly, Shelagh Allen and Bill Lovett

The competition is a drawn triple, except the total handicaps of the drawn teams are averaged and the difference starts the game at that level. The score will have been count when ten ends have been played if inclement weather stops the game. Other changes are when a dead end occurs, the jack is placed on the side markers.

Final: This was a very entertaining quality game, Keithís team took an early lead, but by the tenth end the scores were level at 7-7. Austinís team then went briefly ahead on the twelfth end.  However, Keithís team pressurised Austin and team scoring three shots on several ends winning the competition on the seventeenth end.

Our Captain Reg Birmingham thanked the members for their support, Bryan Hughes for the care of the green and equipment, Tony Lear for running the competition and the players giving us an excellent Final. He then presented the Trophy to the deserved winners. Yours truly then took the photographs. Please Remember this report and photographs will be found on our website www.bowlingalmeria.com.
