The eighteen Downton Bowlers received a warm a welcome at Fordingbridge BC. The scene was set by the Captains as an intro, with a warning from Alan Waters that the green will feel like bowling on ice compared to our pedestrian Green.
Although it took some getting use to, the Downton players seemed to enjoy the challenge, We won three rinks, the best being a win of 28-6 by Martin Scammell, Colin Morris and Skip Cathy Dean. The overall score was 116-80, 3rinks each.
The day was rounded off with a drink, tea and biscuits and much banter
