Dave and the Art of Mower Maintenance

Our valiant mechanic wrestles with an unruly carburettor.

Not sure the emissions are quite in up to Saddiq's stringent standards.

Political Bias

Clearly Theresa favours the bias on the right.

In hindsight, she failed to read a distinct swing to the left.

Random Pairs

On Saturday we had 14 members turn up for an internal club competition.

The club captain struggled with the various permutations and combinations that this number involved and finally settled on 7 pairs, with each pair playing the other 6 pairs over two ends with three woods each.

It was a very good way of introducing new members to more established members and experiencing competitive bowls in a friendly environment.

Geraldine and Johnny emerged eventual winners with David L and George coming a 'close' second.

Election Scoop

Nicola Sturgeon on the campaign trail; some people will do anything to get elected!

Keith Sage

Keith Sage the club’s longest serving member died this May at the untimely age of 62.

His funeral was attended by past and present members of the club.

Keith was the club's Men’s Champion ten times from 2002 to 2011, he was a very talented bowler, our green keeper, a mad Gooner, and a thoroughly decent chap.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

A natural bowler and a talented Skip

With his best mates Roger C and Noel

Bounds Green - Home

For our first home match of the season we gave a warm but rather damp welcome to Bounds Green in the Pat Hicks and Bertie Joel Trophy first round. Four triples met a crack team from our nearest neighbours. The rain delayed the start but then held off for the remainder of the afternoon.

Bounds Green to a while to get into their stride but steadily pulled away on all rinks to win by a comfortable margin.

An enjoyable afternoon was not only dampened by the weather but also the absence of our dear friend and great bowler Keith Sage who is fondly remembered and greatly missed.
