Angels on a Flyer
Whilst the weather continues to play havoc with the round robin sessions, the league breezes through its fixtures in the Manx Petroleum sponsored Outdoor Winter League Bowling Club and after game 36, Seven-Up occupy top spot.
In second position are Louie’s Angels who improved their average with two scores over 80 in the weekend’s one set of fixtures that were played in near perfect conditions.
They began with an expected win against Bits n Bobs, and I am sure thought they would have a tougher battle in their second outing, but in fact were comfortable victors over challengers RBM, recording a score of 82-64.
Just three points separated Castletown Cannons and RBM in their opener, before Cannons finally recorded their first success of the campaign whilst defeating Bits n Bobs.
The regular Wednesday round robin went ahead in mixed conditions, with the 20 entrants being separated into two gangs of doubles. Winners in the reds were Mike Skelly and Sylvia Kennaugh ahead of Jean Thackrah and Margaret Tasker; while in the yellow gang, Alan Moore and Derek Allen came out in front of Derek Cadamy and Trish Bull.
More inclement weather resulted in just 12 competitors at the weekend session which was won by Derek Clarke and Philippa Taylor and in second were Margaret Tasker and Caroline Whitehead. Both sessions ending early, but not quite beating the weather, with the midweek gang caught out by heavy rain and the Saturday group finishing in a hail shower.
