Tenby 93 shots Norwest 103
Tuesday, May 6, brought the mini tour of Norwest to the Tenby green. Norwest hail from the Bath area. A mixed team, the tourists had set out to enjoy themselves - and they certainly did that, both on and off the green. They were excellent company, and there was only one way in which this game could be played - and that was friendly and fun. Once again, thank you to guest players who helped to make up the Tenby team.

TENBY BC 194 COWBRIDGE BC 99
Last weekend was a perfect one for bowls. The weather was absolutely beautiful, with sunshine all the way (has summer come at last?), and with both men’s teams winning on Saturday, the icing on the cake came on Sunday with a friendly of six mixed rinks against visiting Cowbridge Bowling Club. It turned out to be a lovely afternoon, with plenty of laughter. Many thanks to Pendine for putting out a rink for us and it was also nice to see Ray Holly supporting again.Although the score looked a little one-sided, it was nice to see one of the Cowbridge rinks getting a ‘hot shot’.
