It is somehow hard to believe that we are already halfway through the summer season, writes Bert Hague.
Perhaps this is because we have had such poor weather.
I feel that the second part of the season will be glorious, competitions gaining progress and visiting teams and their supporters coming in droves.
Sidmouth played both home and away against Budleigh in the county trophy, losing 74-89 overall.
Meanwhile, in the Over-60s Triples League, Sidmouth A travelled to Okehampton where they landed a single shot success.

Sidmouth B were in action on the same day and they too were successful, winning on both rinks in their home game against Morchard Bishop. Things appear to be looking up!
Sidmouth D met Wellington on the same day and drew one of the rinks 15-all. However, they lost heavily ion the other to the tune of a 35-7 score lone and so lost the match.

Touring side Waddesdon and Long Crendon brought seven rinks for a match at Sidmouth. The home team won overall and the highest winning rink comprised Steve Boyle, Ken Bridgman, Jim Wrench and skip Eileen Hewett.
Waddesdon bowling club play in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor, which is now National Trust.
It was originally owned by the Rothschild family and is now overseen by Jacob Rothschild, the fourth Baron, who is also the club patron. I wonder whether they play with gold plated jacks?
Another touring side to visit were Hemel Hempstead and they pitched up with 10 rinks for a match played out in glorious weather – for once!
Sidmouth won on six of the ten rinks with the highest score going to Ralph Brooks, John Greenaway, Chas Coates and skip Margaret King.
