We are coming to the end of the bowling season sadly , finals day is on the horizon and we have enjoyed the ups and downs of Leamington (well some of us have)
 Maggie Scrace and Sue Goodchild were in action at Leamington on Monday 23rd August in the first round of the pairs against the ladies from Shipton Yorkshire and after 16 ends came out  19 8  winners.  With barely time to have a sandwich and a cup of tea they were back on the green to play their second round which this time didn't quite go to plan as they were up against a strong pairing from Lincolnshire one of them being Amy Gowshall a Commonwealth Games and England player.  Sadly they bowed out in this game but well done to both especially Maggie who has won her way to Leamington many times during her long years at Thicket, she says this was her swan song and is bowing out of  County and National Competitions 
Tuesday was the day for the men's triples competition to start and our threesome of Gordon Knapper, Russell Harper and Skip Kevin Scrace didn't get off to a great start against the men from Norfolk who raced ahead and our boys never got to grips with the green and bowed out of the triples
Ah well there is always next year.
