Ladies Captain s day at Seaton was marked by a Captain v Vice Captain match played over four rinks

Ladies' Captain's day at Seaton was marked by a Captain v Vice Captain match played over four rinks.

After an enjoyable afternoon's bowling, the captain's team was defeated by 23-46.

After the match the teams were joined by 15 non-playing members, and 47 ladies sat down to a superb buffet laid on by the Catering Committee. Angie has asked me to thank these ladies, on her behalf, for all the hard work that went into making her day a very special occasion.

She also thanks the six gents who waited on the ladies and served the drinks.

The following day four rinks of men playing at home, met Culm Vale BC in a Two Counties League match. Seaton won on three rinks 92-61.

Top rink J Allison, R Thompson, R Carnell and R McDonald 27-6. On the other two rinks the ladies of the two clubs played a friendly game, resulting in a win for Seaton 45-35. Top rink: O Blunden, B Steer, O Real and A Mayhew 29-14.

The Over-60s, playing away, lost to a very strong Topsham side 28-43.
