The cold and windy weather did not dampen the spirits of the Phear Park bowlers as the traditional start of the season began last Sunday (April 14) with the staging of President’s Day, writes Kay Beresford.

Our new president, Peter, Burch looked resplendent in his chain of office, as he opened the season by sending down the first wood.

On a heavy green there followed a round-robin triples competition, using a yardstick format (all bowls within a yard of the jack scores), which was won by Rod Davidson (skip), Rick Tatchell and Christine Hatchard, with a score of plus 11.

The club welcomed several new members for what hopefully will be an enjoyable and successful season.
