The league season for bowling is now in full swing and
yesterday in the Lions league Miraflores Hurricanes had the opportunity
to travel to a warm and sunny Alameda near Antequera to play the newest
team in this league for their first home game which was a close fought
affair resulting in a win to Miraflores by 6 points to 4. Although this
was a long trip for us we must bear in mind that we only have to do it
once, but they must travel to the coast every week, it was a beautiful
drive through lovely scenery and made a very pleasant change to the
N340! We wish them every success for the rest of the season and hope
they enjoy the experience for many years to come.
As is usual at this time of year we are fast approaching
the largest open bowls competition on the coast the "Miraflores Open".
This year we are delighted to have 2 major sponsors in place, namely Ibex
Insurance and Solar in Spain both of whom will have
representatives on site to answer questions about their companies to
both players and spectators. The event starts on Saturday 12th November
and runs through to Sunday 20th. Entrants do not need to belong to a
club as the competition is open to all, there are 3 disciplines: Mixed
Triples, Mixed Pairs & Men's and Ladies' Singles. The closing date for
entries is Friday 4th November and they can either be made via the
poster which should be on display at every club on the coast or by email
to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entry fees are €8 per person per discipline,
payable at the club on arrival.
Spectators are welcome at all times and we have a
fully stocked bar with food available to satisfy everybody's needs.
Sunday 20th November which is finals day will feature all 4 finals and
is normally a very popular event for spectators, especially the post
final presentations and scorecard draw with prizes from local businesses
for all entrants who are present, don't miss it!!
