We flirted with the weather but just about got away with it. The rain cleared a few minutes before we were due to start and when a shower passed over later it coincided with our break for the usual delicious sandwiches, tea, scones and cakes.
So, pleasantly warm and mostly dry, it was another good afternoon’s bowling.
The winners were Mo Kellett and Mike Greatbatch, pictured here being presented with their prizes by Jilly Hopewell-Taylor. Runners up were Luke Atherton and Mike Griffin, with the bowl-of-the-day being made by Tony Gray.
Another excellent afternoon, with many thanks to Jilly and friends for all their efforts in organising the event.

It was a bright and breezy day for this year’s fun at Oxton Cricket, Tennis and Bowling Club. Very pleasant in the sunshine, but the brisk wind was felt when the sun went behind the clouds.
Not that there was much chance for sitting in the sun, it was a very busy afternoon with all the pairs playing at least four matches, challenging the stamina of some. The half time break was certainly appreciated, with everyone tucking into the excellent selection of sandwiches, tea and cream scones.
Suitably fortified the bowling continued to find the best two pairs for the final.
Congratulations to this year's winners, Bernard Moore and Mo Kellett, pictured here with event organiser Jilly Hopewell-Taylor. In a very close final they just pipped Jean Gregory and stand-in Kevin Owens, with an extra end being required to split the pairs.
It was another perfect social afternoon. Many thanks to Jilly and all the helpers.
You really should come along next year.

For the second year running it was a gloriously hot summer's day at Oxton Cricket, Tennis and Bowling club for the annual bowling competition.
Some basked in the sun while others thought it all too hot, but everyone was kept well supplied with iced drinks to keep up the hydration levels.
Together with the tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes no one could complain about being fed and watered – far from it!
It was another perfect social afternoon that you really should come along to next year.
Many thanks to Jilly and all the helpers who make this event what it is.
There was even time for some bowling, so congratulations to this year’s well deserved winners, Michael Ellis and Jean Gregory – pictured here with Chairperson Jill Oddie, who presented the prizes, and Jill Hopewell-Taylor.
