I’m back from holiday now but on Wednesday morning, yours truly was entertained at Bideford Bowling Club by Ken Lange. We had a short game, of 45-Up, as he was busy mowing the green earlier in the day and had a match in the afternoon. We had a good game which stood at 30-30 after 10 ends but, unfortunately, 4 ends later I’d lost 47-37. The game was watched by another Bideford member, Paul Debnam who recognised my Ringwood shirt. I had a chat with him after the game. An ex-Argyll member, he moved to Bideford a few years ago and fondly remembers his encounters against Ringwood in years gone by. I reeled off many names of our Ringwood stalwarts of whom he remembered well. See you soon.

Saturday 4th May. B&DBA Men's 1st Team at Home against Fordingbridge.

First team off to another very good start, thought I’d send you a copy of the result sheet. 73 shots to Ringwood (12 points) and 63 shots to Fordingbridge (2 points). As you will see we had three winning rinks and one lost rink, unfortunately the losers were my rink but we were up against Tom Warner and co  but what little we did score was enough to ensure that the three winning rinks scored enough for the overall victory so we are very happy
Regards Derick.

Geoff Bell, Dan Cookman, Steve Burns and Lee Croad won 28-9.                                                                                                                                           Mel Barrett, Fred Alderman, Ed Melton and Pete Ward won 21-9.

Rob Huggett, Barrie Seymour, Bryan Tanner and Derick Faulkner lost 8-33.

Saturday 4th May. B&DBA Men's A Team Away against Fordingbridge A.

Sorry can’t send you the result sheet as the home team have that but can tell you that the score was Fordingbridge A 12 - Ringwood 2.
We lost by five shots overall 80 to 75. From a Ringwood point of view two rinks lost by one shot one rink lost by 3 shots and one rink won by one shot.
So we were robbed 
Regards 
Doug 

Saturday 4th May. B&DBA Triples B Team Away against West Moors B.

Once again the trips were away and lost both rinks one rink 17-16 and the other 20-15 so once again a close game.
Cheers 
Doug

I am intending to do a Weekly Bulletin of events, results and other items of interest that happened during the previous week.

Here goes with the first one.

The Harry Wright Trophy got off to a good start last Monday. Good luck to all those taking part during the season.

There were good turnouts for both the Internal Friendly Matches, held on Saturday and the Open Day today.

Saturday was a bit cold, windy and slightly damp at times but was enjoyed by those who turned up.

There was a great turnout at todays Open Day. Although it was cloudy, happily the rain held off. Many thanks to all those who turned out to help introduce our visitors to the game of bowls. Hopefully we will gain some new members this year from todays activities.

Spotted on the Green before todays Open Day. Click on the picture to view full images.
