I got called up to play a bowls match tonight, don't think it was the Dearden Trophy after all, but some kind of knockout for teams in our league. Probably. We were up against one of the Catholic Club teams (unless it was the Hare & Hounds), on a neutral ground - Wardle, over in LANCASHIRE. I managed to score 14 which is pretty good for me, and I enjoyed the game, did some very nice shots and not too many awful ones. We won the match too, so presumably I get to play again next week, or sometime.
I think I shall actually practice next year.
