The greens at Madeira are running very fast in the perfect bowling weather experienced over the past week with those looking after the greens facing a challenge with watering, writes Jenny Smith.
Both the men’s and ladies’ sections have been in action in representative games.
Madeira A did well in their second round of the Grace Mathews Top Club, winning four disciplines and drawing the pairs when Sidmouth ladies conceded the game. Their next round will be at home against either Honiton or Seaton.
For the men, the County Trophy team played Ottery St Mary winning two rinks, drawing one and losing the other but Madeira won the game overall with the top rink of Chris Reed, Nick Cole, Noel Pond and Aaron Southgate.
On Thursday the EDL team and the Top Club squad played, which meant Madeira had to turn out 27 bowlers at the same time!
The EDL team played Heavitree with three rinks winning and one losing; the top rink being skipped by Ian Thomson playing with Alan Halpin, Nick Cole and David Tucker.
The Top Club team played and beat Feniton in the County competition and the National Top Club team were also in action on Friday evening against Sidmouth with another convincing win.
