“Lets give it a go” was the phrase being heard at The Bowling Club on Monday 15th August as a group of men from The 41Club, based in Ottery, came down to the ground to try their hand at the game of bowls. This group forms part of The Rotary Club, but when they pass a landmark age, they move onto The 41 club. John and Terri gave the guys a brief instruction session, and then it was onto the green, accompanied by several volunteers, who were acting as mentors and encouragers. Naturally with a group like this there was a fair amount of laughter, teasing
and hilarity especially when the gentlemen bowled a wrong bias, creating havoc in the neighbouring rink! ( I think one of the guys was almost having to buy 4 rounds of drink!) As the evening drew to a close, thanks were expressed to The Bowling Club for our hospitality and it would appear that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their evening.
