Barefoot Bowls 2021 42 members attended the Solander Lakes Bowls Club on Sunday, 27 June 2021, for the annual bowls day, and appeared to have a great time. Indeed, the 24 who actually bowled, had an even better time.
Peter McGruddy’s team prevailed as the winners, but only because they managed to get in more ends of bowls (20 ends), than the number of ends achieved in the other matches.
At the conclusion of this feverish bout of activity, the various teams retired to the clubhouse where the members of Peter’s team and those of the opposing team, were presented with their “gold” medals and the bag of boiled sweets, by the dignitary in attendance, our one and only esteemed President.
Following this auspicious ceremony, everybody sat down for a few ales or wines, during the course of which, the stories of their exaggerated successes on the Bowling Green and/or on their recent fishing expeditions commenced unabated before each table was presented with a basket of food in order to satisfy their ravenous appetites.
Eventually, in true fishing club style, everybody departed at approximately 5.30 pm. Judging by the comments of those who attended, a great day had been had by all.
The moral of the story is therefore, that if you did not attend this year, make sure that you do so next year.
