The ladies of Honiton Bowls Club have been flying high lately.
In the ladies' county competitions, the following have reached the section finals:Pairs: Rosemary Hirons and Lynda Dommett, who was substitute for Brenda Harris; Triples: Rosemary Hirons, Ann Hillyear and Pearl Hackwood; Fours: Rosemary Hirons, Rita Barwick, who was substitute for Chris Nex, Ann Hillyear and Pearl Hackwood. Also in the fours: Shirley Hiscocks, Carole Fisher, Joan Heard and Sue Evans.The two Honiton fours will now face each other in what should be a close, no holds barred encounter. A good clean fight if you please ladies when the time comes. With the number of finals some of these ladies have reached, there are certain men in the club who are beginning to feel like bowls widowersIn the Foxlands competition, there were two good victories over Sidmouth, winning on three rinks out of four, and Torbay, with rinks being shared at two each but with the overall score being claimed by Honiton. Scores versus Torbay, home skips Sue Evans won 25-12, Carole Fisher lost 15-18. Away skips Dulcie Broughton lost 13-26, Ann Hillyear won 18-12.In contrast the sun hasn't shone on the men. The ICL game against Torbay A resulted in a four rink defeat. The Over-60s fared a little better against Plymouth but only the rink of Fred Cowey, Keith Parsons, Mike Dart and Dennis Hillyear managed a win.Captain Eddie Sharman has just reached the last eight of the county unbadged singles. Good luck in your next game.The club were well represented at the recent county U21 singles championship. Aaron Chalk reached the semi final stage.Recent results from friendly matches: v Nomads BA won 110 - 59, v Madeira won 77-73, v West Berks tourists won 81-64, v Taunton Deane lost 66-81.l Finally the bad news. Planning permission was refused for my igloo, so the press office has had to be relocated to the cleaning cupboard (my rightful abode).
