Season Opening 2023/24

Saturday, September 2nd was a special day over at Clifton Springs Bowling Club. We kicked off another season of lawn bowls, and boy, were we lucky with the weather! The sun was shining, and it was heartening to see so many familiar faces from our club.

We began the day with a tradition close to our hearts – the ceremonial rollout led by our past champions, Rosemary Sexton and Peter Fisk. Those two really know how to bowl, and they set the tone for what’s shaping up to be an exciting season.

Once the formal stuff was out of the way, we got down to the real fun – Social bowls. The greens were buzzing with laughter and some friendly competition as our members got into the game. After some solid matches, we raised a glass to our winners – Pete Fisk, Bev Teggelove, and Howard Lonsdale, and gave a nod to the runners-up, Barry Oswald, Pat Scally, and Lee Lane. It was all in good spirit, just the way we like it.

With the games wrapped up, it was time for a well-deserved breather. We gathered for a drink and some afternoon tea, lovingly provided by our club mates. It was a simple yet perfect ending to a fantastic day of bowls and catching up. Here’s to a season full of more great times together!
