Sun rises on new season of umbrella competitions

During the Christmas break, there were a few roll ups and the Foxlands teams had a practice. New Year’s Day saw the first Sunrise Umbrella of the New Year with bowling sessions during the morning and the afternoon, write Sue and Peter Mison.

All players met for an excellent lunch provided by Ronnie and Sylvia Cook, consisting of champagne, a chip butty and caviar, followed by a delicious Christmas cake made by Ronnie, accompanied by a slice of Wensleydale cheese which is a Yorkshire custom.

Not sure what standard of bowling was reached during the afternoon but all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

On Tuesday, Honiton Ladies brought three rinks over to play a friendly match.

This is always closely contested, but on this occasion Honiton won by two rinks to one and by 64 -47.
