 Almeria Mixed Pairs

Nov. 2018 - Almeria BC

Report by Vic Parsons, photo editing  by John Carr. 

The ALBC Mixed Pairs is a new competition replacing the ALBC Fours which was never really supported in numbers taking part. This proved it was a success decision with 20 pairs entering. It commenced on Tuesday 23rd with the preliminary round, ending on Saturday 27th with the Final taking place.

The winners were Wayne and Carol Roberts against another very competitive team Ken and Viv Sykes.

To reach this stage, Ken and Viv beat a very good team in a close game against Sandra and Keith Minnett. Wayne and Carol were successful over Graham and Catherine Patrick. Both games were played at a very good level.

The Final was eagerly looked forward to and supporters viewed a great game. Good quality bowls from all players produced an exciting afternoon with Ken and Viv going ahead in the early ends until Wayne and Carol scored four shots on the sixth end with the score at 8-6 and continued not letting Ken and Viv get in front but also not getting too far ahead. On the seventeenth end Wayne and Carol were three shots ahead 17-14. The last end all was rooted to their seats when Ken and Viv needed 3 to draw and 4 to win. Viv played an excellent end holding the four shots required. Carol then with her last wood scored the wood to take second place, Ken tried hard to move it but unsuccessfully. Wayne then wisely didnít need to bowl his last wood giving Wayne and Carol a well-deserved Championship

Reg Birmingham our Captain thanked the players who had taken part in this competition together with all the spectators who had come to watch, Tony Lear for running the competition, Bryan Hughes and John Fitzgerald for the upkeep and management of the carpet and equipment.
