In the pairs, Nicky Fiddimore and Sue Harriott had another strong win, 26-10.

In the triples, Jan Roberts, Brenda Marks and Deirdre Norman kept up the pressure winning 25-4.

Finally, the fours did their best to keep the score close. Dee Williams, Ann Doidge, Chris Macaulay and Jacky Howle lost their game 11-16. The squad now goes on to play Section Seven on a neutral green on August 29.

Madeira hosted a friendly for visitors from Nailsea BC of Bristol. Despite the very warm temperatures of late, Madeira won five of the seven rinks, lost on two and drew on one. Madeira had an overall win of 152-130 and the top home rink was the one skipper by club secretary Dave Macaulay with John Sweetman, Jean Bagnall, and Carole Worth, winning 34-12.

Four rinks of Madeira bowlers travelled to Bovey Tracey for a friendly and a good result was achieved, a 64-57 success. The top rink was the one skipped by Bob Finch with Myra Furminger, Ian Healey and David Bagnall, who won 26-8.

Madeira travelled to Wellington in Somerset for a friendly and won on three rinks, and lost on three. However, due to the sterling effort of skip David Mears with Debbie Fox and John Hopkins, who won on their rink 24-7, Madeira took home an overall win.

The ladies’ Mary Baldwyn Triples, an internal ladies’ competition, was played this week.

The competition is played as a round robin. The winners, who won two games and drew their third are ladies’ secretary Glynis Byrn, Carole Worth and Mavis Prew.

A friendly against Cullompton was cancelled due to poor weather conditions and the friendly against Loughborough Greenfield BC was played indoors, also due to the inclement weather.
