The final meeting of the 2019 Sidmouth outdoor bowling campaign saw the playing of the annual drive, which this time was organised by John Mason, writes Casrol Smith.

A total of 10 teams of triples played four ends before moving on to play another team over four ends, and so on through to the conclusion of play.

After a terrible forecast and a fair drop of early rain we actually didn't get a drop once we started and that made for a good way to end the season.

What's more, a look at the forecast for the coming weeks and I might suggest we bowlers will be rather happy to be moving indoors!

The drive winners were Ray Gray, Frank Adlam and skip Jill Bishop, who were awarded a prize, while the 'Must do Better' award went to the team of Ron Peppin, Jan Quinn and skip Sue Turner, who were also awarded a small prize.
