This year a group of 22 bowlers (and one non-bowler) went on tour to Almeria, Spain, in September. Members were fortunate in having the services of club member Rae Knights, who works for the holiday firm Personal Touch, who very successfully organised our week of bowling. The initial game was against ex-pats at Indalo club where we played on a brand new artificial surface. The following games were played at Cabrera club and Almeria. These were both on grass and which were, to say the least, challenging. However, attempting to preserve greens in thirty plus degrees of heat must be extremely difficult.The weather was glorious throughout the week and the general feeling was one of a truly enjoyable tour.
