How to play Doms

Owing to Committee meeting time curtailed events and games were restricted to 5 ends with 7 (eventually) playing.

7 because ROC had forgotten to include Club Champion Gordon Wilson in the draw! GW was quickly re-instated but equally as quickly despatched by the same ROC who went to win the final v Jimmy Bathgate The later was hard done by very bad sportsmanship as he was about top play his last bow won’t mention the Members name distracted him and that was game over.

Whilst the bowls progressed the KO Dominoes was in full flow and a more raucous night it is hard to imagine. Huge suspicions that some of the players may have been on caffeine overload judging by the noise! and forgetting how to play the game!!!! Still there were no spillages this week J

The Club is holding a SHORT CARPET COMPETITION & DOMINO FLYER on FRIDAY 7 DECEMBER

Prizes up for grabs. So please make every effort to attend!!

A Night Of The Granny’s

Another night at the NBC and this time only 8 of the 11 played the short carpet with ROC winning the session beating Gordon Wilson in the final.

Allan Mitchell’s made his return where he, as usual, told everyone “no to bother as he would win it despite his holiday lay off” only for him to be ‘grannied’ by the aforesaid Gordon Wilson. 

On to the Dominoes and the usual ferocious, give no quarter, games of knockout. (As like the 21 Goals) In fact, so exciting that Jimmy Martin scattered both a can of (empty) juice and a fuller drink in two separate incidents! He blamed the full one on watching a bowl that distracted him. Back in again next Monday as there is a Committee meeting so get yourself along and support the Club.

Work On The Green Last Day

Saturday saw the last day of work on the green what was supposed to be 4 hours turned out to be almost 9. As the last of the holes were drilled the drill hit something very hard and it was a struggle to get the drill out of the ground. Being almost 30ft down made things worse, but the boys done well getting out after one hour. The last hole being set up for drilling saw the same thing happen but this time it was only about 20 ft down , was a bit easier to get the drill out . then the clear up started The slow process of getting the drill of the green started. (see  Pictures ). The end of a long day.
