THE Almeria Lawn Bowling Club Mixed Pairs handicap competition proved to be more popular than the ALBC Fours which it replaced.
The club reported entries were better in this competition, which was played over four days. Rain upset the schedule however, so the final was late starting and took place on November 5.
The final was a well fought occasion with all players playing well. Graham and Cath Patrick, who had a two-shot lead with the handicap, started the scoring, but Wayne and Carol Roberts levelled the score on the seventh end 5-5.
Wayne and Carol then had five ends without scoring until the 12th end. Nip and tuck from here on ended with Graham and Cath winning the championship by two shots,14-12
Graham and Cath reached the final by having a very close game against Mick and Di Dutfield, winning by one shot. Wayne and Carol had a good game against John and Eileen Phoenix to get into the final.
At the end of the competition ALBC club Captain Brown thanked Tony Lear for running the event, everyone who had made the effort to play and support the game, and Bryan Hughes for management of the green before presenting the trophy to the winners.
