Club night on Friday saw more prospective new members try their hands at bowling. Membership now stands at 94 and we would like to reach 100 this year. Come along on any Friday evening at or after 5.45pm to see if you might like to join the club. Bring flat shoes. Membership up to next spring is only £15 and for this you can join in indoor away matches and the winter social programme.Last Tuesday members of Ottery St Mary Town Council and their guests met at Ottery St Mary Bowling Club for a match against club members. Twenty visitors were welcomed and, after completing some initial training, they took part in a 10 end game against club members. Although, as might be expected, the club won, several visitors bowled very well and many showed great promise. After refreshments the club chairman, Michael Potter, and the Mayor Glyn Dobson, both thanked the organisers and all those attending for a very successful and enjoyable evening. The atrocious weather has persisted and a "friendly" at home on Saturday against Axminster was cancelled early in the day when heavy rain and wind was forecast for the whole day and this proved correct.On Sunday, Ottery played against Sidmouth away. This match was won by Sidmouth with 108 shots against Ottery's 92.The mixed triples team of H Channon, M Parker and W Taylor beat a team from Bere Alston, Devon, in the County Mixed Triples competition to secure a place in the semi-final on September 20. Well done Ottery!The club internal competition finals will be played over this weekend, August 23, 24.
