‘Bowls 4 Free’ event to have a go on February 1

Rugby Thornfield Indoor Bowls Club’s first gala of 2015 saw 12 teams take to the green to raise funds for the Rugby Talking Newspaper, writes Alan Jackson.

Two points separated the top six teams with Team Preps leading the way. Colin’s Boys and Super Duper Newspapers were joint second while fourth as shared by The Talkies, Rainbows and Ole Codgers. At the half-time break Super Duper Newspapers held a one- point point lead over Colin’s Boys, who in turn were a point ahead of Ole Codgers in third place. Leos and Uprisers completed the top five in fourth and fifth respectively.

With one round of games left Super Duper Newspapers (Jan Mitchell, Sue Henderson, Les Hartopp and Bob Henderson) held a slender lead over Ole Codgers. Colin’s Boys and Leos were joint third and Tacky fifth. 27 points gave Super Duper Newspapers a six-point victory margin over Tacky and Leos in joint second. Talkies and Ole Codgers were a point further back in joint fourth.

The next charity gala is on Sunday, February 1 at 2.30pm in aid of the British Heart Foundation. There will also be a ‘Bowls 4 Free’ event between noon and 2pm on the same day.
