The first match between the MBC and the U3A was a very enjoyable event which was enjoyed by all those who took part. The overall score of 100-77 didn't reflect the quality of the composition. Two MBC rinks, Hazel's and Mike's both won by 20+ shots which show s how close the others games were. Eleanor, Mary and Jenny organised the afternoon tea and ran the bar. Thanks to Jan, Hazel and Margaret Ellward did the washing up and clearing away and David Drew who stepped in to support Don Wright by sorting out the teams.
An excellent match played in a friendly spirit on a superb green but alas we went down 75-90
The rearranged match was played under a glorious late evening sky which included a rainbow. This didn't bring the promised good luck as we went down 49-72 with Mel's rink drawing on the final end to win the sweep.
REVENGE AT FARNSFIELD (ALMOST!)
A 71-59 win away at Farnsfield did soften the pain of the home defeat. Lost overall 98-159.
A good green, excellent company and keen competition.
Well done Stephen Lindsay on his first club match away on a green that was only the second one he has ever bowled on.
Lost to Queensway 48-85
The heavy rain didn't spoil an excellent evening's bowling. Trevor's rink won the sweep and President Linda keeps on smiling. Mary, Margaret Vardy, Eleanor and Hazel produced a superb buffet.
A 64-64 draw at home to Southwell
Sadly not enough to claw back a one shot short fall from the away match. MBC lost the trophy by 1 shot.
A good win at home against Welbeck
The home win 70-56 and the away victory 66-55 ensured that MBC retained the cup. Congratulations to 'Ginny,' Judith Glenmore and Mike who scored 8 shots on one end which made sure that they won the sweep.. Thanks to Eleanor for the excellent refreshments.
Despite going down 100-102 to Newark we enjoyed a great game and a super buffet provided by Tiggy, Hazel and Jenny.
HVPs retained the Roy Saxton Trophy. President Linda's rink won the sweep.
The District team ensured that the rain kept pouring so that the narrow lead they held couldn't be bettered. Instead everyone enjoyed a very sociable evening with a quiz, won by Trevor and Lynne rounded off with a superb buffet provided by Margaret, Mary, Margi Eleanor Hazel and Susan. Christine and Jackie ran a busy bar. The District team donated the raffle to the President's Charity.
An really exciting match against Southwell Ladies saw MBC come two shots short of levelling the series. The difference after two legs was 91-93 to Southwell ladies. The afternoon tea served by Eleanor was enjoyed by all. Everyone said how pleasing it was to see President Linda on the green.
An excellent home win wasn't enough to claw back the 48 shots we were behind after the away leg. To have reduced it to only 21 shots shows the improvement we made. Hazel, Tiggy and Eleanor provided a splendid buffet and Christine managed a very busy bar..
DAVID TAYLOR SHIELD
Five full rinks representing MBC and the Queen Elizabeth's Academy met each other, for the eighth time, to compete for the David Taylor Trophy. This year the winning margin was reduced to 30 shots, which illustrates the progress made during the summer coaching by the students. As well as many staff members, the event was supported by Helena Brothwell the Academy Principal and Club President Linda Alvey. The late downpour didn't dampen the spirits of the players who enjoyed this annual event.
The match has been rearranged for Wednesday 30th August
A lovely warm summer evening and excellent company was somewhat spoilt by the thrashing we received from Mansfield Brewery. A loss by over 40 shots will make the home leg challenging.
An excellent win away at Queen Anne's 89-80
Paul, John and Lee were the winning rink.
A good win, at home to Retford,in difficult conditions
Please note that Finals Day will be the 16th September. Please make sure that you are available before entering the club 'knock out' competitions.
