On 13th of August, stalwarts from Miraflores BC plus a few visiting “heavyweights”, continued to battle it out under the brilliant Costa del Sol sun, at the popular, bi-weekly, one day, 2 wood pairs sets competition.
The format consisted of the now familiar sets of 7 ends, with 3 groups playing a round robin.
The entry included some very strong players, but the bookies favourites would have been Tom Rodgers, (Spanish Squad) with Terry Morgan, (Team Malaga), Terry Barrett, (twice winner of this event), with Garry Aldridge, (Team Malaga) and host club bowlers, Andy Salmon & Jeff Turner.
In the event, Tom & Terry were drawn in a tough group & lost to Terry & Garry. In turn, Terry & Garry lost to Robert Wright & Stuart Thacker.
Andy & Jeff, who had never won this event, played superbly all day and cruised to the final, where they met the popular Chris Jewson & Juan Abel, welcome visitors from Benalmadena BC. The final was a very one-sided affair, with Andy & Jeff winning in straight sets.
Thanks were given to the sponsors, Miraflores BC, for their generosity in providing the prize money and to Craig, Sandra, Heather & Lynne, for outstanding catering support.
