Great day at Braza

Nine Members of Willows accepted the invitation from Wally of Galleywood SMBC to join them for a day of bowls against the Braza SMBC in March, Cambridgeshire on Saturday 24th Feb.  This is an annual event which Wally has been organising for almost 20 yrs l believe.

After a smooth relaxing coach journey, the arrival was met with a warm welcome from the Braza members along with tea/coffee and biscuits  before embarking on a day of triples.  Eight sessions of 7 ends. Mat 4 proved to certainly be a challenge indeed, similar or worse than our mat 1.

Lunch, was very tasty sausage, mash and gravy, apple pie and custard or cheesecake.  A wonderful buffet of a vast selection of both savoury and sweet food was provided at teatime.

Galleywood made a strong lead by winning all four mats in the first session, but sadly wan’t able to maintain the lead, but there were some  close scores indeed. The day ended, with Braza winning and retaining the shield, but that did not take away the enjoyment of the day.

If Willows are invited next year l would highly recommend members to accept the invitation.


Congrats to Whites / Green Team Update

Firstly well done the Whites for their two mat win at home against Canvey Gold a well deserved and wanted 5 points.  Believe the Whites have 4 matches left, 1 away and 3 home, so more points within their grasp.

The Greens have 5 matches left, 3 home and 2 away so they also have points to claim.  Green team members will find the team selection for the next two matches on the ‘Green Team’ page.  Please let Carol T know asap if your not available to play.
