On a day when the sun shone brilliantly, the water flasks were set out, all the players from Ottery Bowls Club acquired a hat, and all in readiness for the visitors from a far away place - namely Bridport!  

On Saturday, July 16, it was a pleasure to entertain visitors from another county. At the halfway point, the scores on all rinks were fairly even, but the welcome cup of tea at that point gave Ottery the impetus to pull away sufficiently to win on three out of four rinks. On this occasion, the top rink consisted of Maurice Flower, David Rose Gail Hawke and the mysterious CR. 

Without boasting, we are seeing that winning is becoming a habit, but there are plenty of more occasions in the future when the club will meet very formidable opposition, so we enjoy a victory when we can.
