A cool but dry late summer evening in Barlaston was the setting for an evening of bowling. Many of the 21 people taking part had no previous experience of crown green bowling. After a random selection process to pair up players had taken place, bowls had been chosen and basics of the game had been explained to all participants, they were let loose onto the green. The technicalities of the game were soon mastered and some very fine bowling took place. Eventually after all games had been completed we emerged with our 2017 doubles champions...Linda Berrington and Susan Merry. Congratulations to both of them for their fine performances.
Afterwards everyone retired to a local hostelry for a well deserved drink and hot supper. Conversation about the bowling centred on performances and how some had indeed shown a natural flair for the three requirements of crown green bowling....land, length and most importantly luck!
That's the way to do it!
