The monthly chicken run was once again well supported. Thirty two members and a couple of guests took part. The chicken for the ladies was won by Lynne Armitage, Jack Burrell was the winner of the men. The eggs were won by Ken White and a guest of Graham Smythe. Instead of the normal half a dozen each they received an extra three fresh eggs each. The fresh eggs were donated by Ian and Julia Hamilton.

Tribute to Bill Young from Monte Mar Bowls Club

Bill was a bowler, an umpire and a coach who sadly passed away on Tuesday 6th February. Billīs other loves was talking about boxing and rugby league and in fact any subject that came up.

Bill has several entries on the Clubīs Honours Board which is a lasting testament to his undoubted bowling ability. He participated in many tournaments organised by other Clubs and during the last few months was in winning teams at both La Siesta and Bonalba Bowls Clubs in their respective competitions.

As many fellow bowlers will know, Bill was very forthright in his views but this was because he was very passionate about the sport of bowling. Over his time whilst bowling in Spain, he had competed at every level and had a record he could be proud of.

At Monte Mar Bill assisted and took great pleasure in coaching new members. He was always willing to offer assistance to all Club members.

We were pleased Billīs family were joined by so many bowlers from different Clubs from the Costa Blanca, which gave Bill a fitting send off on Friday 9th February.

Cheers to our two new members Tanya Oliver and Jack Burrell.
Diane John and Mick.
