Two of Sidmouth’s teams have won their first rounds of the County Mixed Triples Competition for section 3B. 
Mick Cox, along with Carol and David Timms played at home to a trio from Ottery St Mary .  Over the 18 ends Sidmouth led all the way to finish with a score of 18 - 8. 
The second team of Zena Johnson, along with Anita and John Mason, played away at Seaton, and were behind for the first 10 ends, but on the 11th end went ahead and never looked back, finally winning 16- 10. 
Both teams play their next round at Feniton BC on Sunday 27th June - supporters are always welcome. 
Most Friday evenings (weather permitting) there is another very well attended Mixed Umbrella. This is the Sunset Umbrella organised by Steve Boyle. 
In normal times after the game, the players would all congregate in the clubhouse for a lovely supper  and, of course, a drink or two.  
Sadly no suppers on offer yet but for the first time since goodness knows when, the bar was open. It all seemed a little strange with masks, distancing, table service and would you believe, cashless payments - moving with the times. Nevertheless, it was so good to socialize after such a long time. 
Skip Jill Bishop, along with Susie Bonnell and Karen Hollingdale, played the County Major Triples, Section 3B at home. Their opponents being an excellent trio from Madeira B C. skipped by Janine Orchard and, unfortunately, the weather was atrocious and our home team lost. 
It would have been better to rearrange, but being a County Competition it needed to be played before a specific date, and sadly there was just no time to do that. 
John Mason, Sidmouth Bowls Club Chairman, Jo Ridehalgh, Regional Marketing Executive for Churchill Retirement Living, and Mike Borst SBC have announce the new commitment by CRL to SBC. 
Mike Borst, on behalf of Sidmouth Bowls Club, welcomed the assistance and support offered by Churchill Retirement Living to the Sidmouth community activities and especially their involvement and support in the operation of the Bowls Club.
