Approaching the autumn season, the first CAA competition, Mixed Triples took place at ALBC using the brand new constructed green. http://www.bowlingalmeria.com/archives/15999 

There were lots of complementary comments on the green and surroundings by the visiting clubs. The competition was played over three days 8th, 9th and 10th September in warm and windy weather. All local bowling clubs were represented with an entry of twenty-five teams.

The morning of 10th, the Semi-finals took place with one of them featuring two Indalo teams, Keith, Linda Lester and Dennis Leigh against Jan Dando, John and Sue Mannall. For four ends, Keith’s team were ahead slightly, although the quality of play was good from both teams, Jan’s triple maintained continued pressure going through to the Final.

The other Semi-final was an Almeria team, John, Chris Fitzgerald and Wayne Roberts against another Indalo triple, Richard and Lois Swaine and Stan Milton. John’s team had played well going into this game, but Richard’s team were in a mean mood winning comfortably.

The Final on paper was going to be a tight game between the Jan Dando, John and Sue Mannall against Richard, Lois Swaine, Stan Milton. However, although once again the quality and professionalism was there, Jan’s team could not match the drive of Richard’s team who took the Championship.

On completion of the competition, John Fitzgerald presented the trophy and prizes to the finalists. He expressed is thanks to Tony Lear and the CAA committee for running the three days.  He also thanked the umpires, John Sephton and Ferah Mehmet, Bryan Hughes for the care of the green during the competition, especially hoovering the carpet on Finals day and finally, for the spectator’s support.
