Last Sunday, Honiton Bowling Club celebrated indoor bowling at Honiton with the staging of the Jubilee Trophy match, writes Joan Mackintosh.
The competition was initiated to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the opening of the indoor green in Honiton, and to remember those that had the foresight and courage to have it built.
We are now in the 29th year of indoor bowling at Honiton and have a facility that is the envy of many who visit us. The match is played on a round robin basis and those that accumulated the greatest number of points were the winners.
The winning team was the one of Terry House, Margaret Bright, Garry Osborne and Ken Clarke. The participants also enjoyed a chicken and chips lunch part way through the day. In club action, the men played a friendly match against Madeira and they came out on top the tune of a 67-45 score line with the top rink being the one of R Chapel, T Halls, G Osborne and B Randall (25-14). In the men’s Interclub League, Honiton were in action against Dawlish and again it was with a positive outcome as they won 84-37 with the top rink the one of P Barradell, B Singleton, K Vernon and S Coles. The Honiton ladies played a friendly match at home against Budleigh, beating the visitors 34-30 with the top rink being the one of R Randell, J Baker, M Parsons, H Chambers (16-12).
Last, but certainly not least, Honiton defeated Chardstock in a home mixed friendly match. The encounter was won 83-42 and the top Honiton rink was the one of D Tooley, R Sennit, J Smith and D Broughton (26-9).
