On Wednesday 7th June the members of Bitterne Bowls Club decided to have a day trip out at Devizes Bowls Club where the teams competed in a six rink mixed friendly game. The game was played in a very friendly manner and even the weather was friendly so a good day all round.
Even the result in terms of rinks entered into the theme of things with each team winning three rinks but from a pride of place as far as Devizes is concerned was rink 1 on the bottom green who were declared as the top winning rink so well done Ellen Stiles, Dave Russell, Richard Bradfield and Terry Miles winning by 26 shots to 19.
Rink 4: Simon Northway, Kelvin Packer, Angela Roberts and Rosemary Bradbury 13-17.
Rink 5: Alison Cross, Mary Pearce, Michael Alexander, Ken Roberts 20 – 14.
Rink 6: Will Ilott, Ken Curtis, Bryan Reeves and Sheila Garlick 17-16.
Rink 1: Ellen Stiles, Dave Russell, Richard Bradfield and Terry Miles 26-19.
Rink 2: Lynne Williams, Stan Rutherford, Denise Howard and Keith Scrannage 15-17.
Rink 3: Marie Greenwood, Jane Ilott, Jeff Whiting and Lesley Russell 13-18.
