INTERCLUB COMPETITIONS - A QUICK RUN DOWN OF HOW OUR CLUB'S REPRESENTATIVES STAND
Peter Hare has a place in the quarter-finals after defeating club-mate Peter King in the third round.
At the quarter final stage, Jean and Peter King, plus Peter and Miriam Hare will be on their way to Floresta. This game is to be played on or before 15th February.
This is at the second round stage. Two trips also needed to Floresta. Peter and Miriam Hare, with Pauline Denyer, also Jan Wilson, Lynn King and Gui Gomes are heading that way to keep the flag flying we hope. However, Keith Johnson, Alison Wooding and Julie Sanderson have a quarter-final tie at Tavira after a huge 32-9 win in their third round match.
Lynn King and Gui Gomes also have to go to Floresta in a third round tie! Brian Denyer and Jan Wilson will make the short trip to Albufeira to contest their third round match.
Jill Dunkey and Frances Reynolds have reached the quarter-finals. Jean King and Julie Sanderson will play their second round match soon.

A big thank you! Email received following their visit - The West End club have just returned from their bowls tour and they have been straight on the phone wanting to thank you for your great hospitality.
