Bere Alston BC – Game 4

Thursday 19th May  at  Bere Alston Bowling Club.

The teams line up in the sunshine

After a couple of wet days playing in Devon in the final game of the week, The Friends’ team were relieved to play in the sunshine at Bere Alston, a club with only 30 playing members with excellent clubhouse and facilities.

We were greeted at lunchtime with very nice sandwich’s, sausage rolls, and a selection of Home made Cakes (yummy yummy).

With a good green and ideal playing conditions we managed a good win 3 rinks to 1 rink. 82 shots to 54 shots.  Top rink went to Maddie McConomy, Alan Horwell, Ian Whelpton and Neil Fletcher.

The Friend’s team were represented by 10 different counties –  a great turnout considering we were just one mile from the Cornish border.  A nice meal was prepared afterwards by Ivor, Jean, June, and Mike volunteer club members doing their first catering duties.  Well done to you all I am sure you will be requested again and again.


Bill Smith presenting Captain Jim Horrell with a memento of the day


All good things have to come to an end and after a lot of chatter and excellent hospitality by our host’s,  Captain of the Day Bill Smith presented host Club Captain Jim Horrell with a framed certificate to mark the occasion.

A great day making new friends and catching up with old ones.
