Indoor season gets underway

Opening drive attracts a big turn out

Madeira Bowling Club started their indoor season on a busy Open Day last Saturday with potential new members coming for coaching on the following Friday.  Coaching in the Winter season is each Friday 4.30 - 6pm when Sandie and her team welcome, teach and explain club bowling with all equipment provided. Other times can be arranged if you contact Sandie first on Exmouth 266088.

After a week available for practice, 3 sessions of 24 members were needed to really start the season with a bang on Sunday for the Opening Drive organised by Ladies Indoor Captain Margaret Humphrey and Men’s Indoor Captain David Hitt.  Skips were chosen, teams organised by lucky dips, and all played 6, 4, and 4 ends across the three rinks.  A lot of fun, but with several bowls sent into the far ditch meaning penalty payment to the Captains’ charity CRUSE (which offers bereavement help for those in need) it proved costly for some.
