Open Day Success

Thanks to all those who came to the open day, the glorious weather, packed green and relaxed atmosphere was a sight for sore eyes after the long winter lay-off.

Thanks to the organisers and helpers for ensuring a steady flow of tea and cakes, introductions to bowling and a warm welcome to our friends and neighbours.

Please come along on Friday evenings from about 6:30 for a taster session or an informal game and a pint.

Club Championship Final

Johnny and Andy contested the first of the club's finals. Andy had shown great form to reach both finals and Johnny despite a difficult season has been a regular in the final.
Andy keeping it all crossed

Andy pulled away to strong lead but Johnny plugged his way back to the brink of victory only for a final surge by last year's Handicap winner to take the win after a marathon match.

Well done Andy - 2014 Club Champion.

Temple Fortune (away)

Three triples went to Temple Fortune. Two rinks struggled with the lightning fast green, but Andy's partners Dylan and Dave S played well to retain a modicum of dignity.

Friary Park - Coronation Cup

The Coronation Cup is one of our favourite events. Hosted annually since 1953 by Friary Park; Muswell Hill has had an illustrious record over the past 60 years.

The event begins with a competition where everyone bowls simultaneously at a wooly spider in the centre of the green. The winner gets a bottle of whisky - this year is was a scotsman and president of Friary Park - John.

The main event is five-rink round robin where each of the five visiting teams faces each of the five home teams. The visitors move rink after every 5 ends.

For the second year running Mill Hill came away with the prize. The other Hills - Parliament and Muswell finished second and third respectively.

Richard, Gerry and Dave L we relieved to come away with a respectable score.
