MICHAEL STEPHEN WIN GENTS TWO BOWL SINGLES

DATE FOR TARGET BOWLS 2018 CONFIRMED
This year’s Target Bowls will take place on the green on Saturday 4 August. Unlike previous years, this is a competition, rather than a Fun Day/Try Bowls Day, which we had earlier this season. I hope that you will want to come down for this event, since it is a bit different from the normal bowls – using targets a bit like crazy golf – but still needs a degree of skill. Get the date into your diary. I am sure that the current weather will hold out till 4 August, so it is too good a day to miss.

The Buchan League is in the balance. After a shaky defeat at home to the hands of New Deer, the A Team have steadied the ship with a couple of hard fought wins against Peterhead and Mintlaw, both away, with a Home win against Longside on 11 June. The B Team registered their first win in two seasons with a valiant win at home to Strichen and followed that up on 11 June with an excellent away win against Peterhead B.
The Grampian Ladies League has been a bit of a challenge this year with the team losing at Home when the games were played at Ellon, they got a walkover when due to play at Longside and they played at Mintlaw in their third game and they came up short again.
GENTS FORBES HENDRY
The Forbes Hendry Men’s competition came to an

BOWLS SCOTLAND DISTRICT 3
Mike Stephen and Mary Legge won 19-4 against Methlick, Phil Anderson and Gillian Sinclair lost 26-14 against Kintore.
The Scottish play-offs have been disappointing as all teams exiting by the quarter final stage with the men, but the ladies did get a team to play in the Finals with Gillian Sinclair, Kathleen Gordon and Ann Singer losing out to the host club Balgownie in the Ladies Triples Final. The mixed pair of Mary Legge and Mike Stephen are Club’s last hope in having someone represent the club in Ayr this year as they are through to the semi-final stage and play Kintore pair Liz and Ron Booth, who got the better of Club’s other pair Gillian Sinclair and Phil Anderson in the quarter finals.

ELLON RESOURCE CENTRE CONVERSATION CAFE
Ellon Bowling Club is proud to support the local community by allowing the Resource Centre to hold their Pop Up Conversation Café in the Clubhouse on the last Thursday morning of each month. Coffee, tea and home-bakes will be on offer at each session and this venture will begin in its new “home” from this coming Thursday, 29 March, from 10 am till 12 pm. The Conversation Café is a non-profit making concern and we as a Club, have decided to support this community project by offering them the use of our clubhouse, since the café will give young people an opportunity to develop basic catering skills and integrate with the public . Why not pop on down this Thursday and get yourself a fly cup?If you can’t make it, please spread the word, since the café is open to everyone and the busier it is, the better. The café previously worked out of the Resource Centre, so hopefully, by word of mouth, the news will spread that it is now based in the Bowling Club.Who knows, if you turn up on Thursday, with it being the first day in the Bowling Club, you might even get your picture in the local press. How could you miss your chance for a moment of fame?
