Basingstoke Town Bowling Club

We were happy to welcome a visit from "The Town" as the Club is affectionately known. Club President Maragaret Coutts and Captain Kaz Harris brought along a much younger team than we normaly see from visitng teams - and very competitive bowlers they were too.

As usual in this busy period we put out a team of mixed experience, blooding some new bowlers to "competitive" bowling and leavening the mix with a wide selection of other bowlers.

We started the morning with a group photo in the bright sunshine and under the Spanish Flag. From there we invited our visitors to participate in a free Spider shootout for big money prizes (2 whole euro) and a bottle of wine.

The Match was over 5 rinks and on most of them the scores were nip and tuck throughout the game. A final tally of 2.5 - 2.5 meant honours were even - evidence of the high standard of bowling our visitors brought - and more importantly everyone enjoyed the morning.

As always we looked for someone with a sense of humour to present with the Giraffe Award. Thanks to Alan for taking it in the right spirit.
