Wedmore welcomes new captain

ISLE of Wedmore's first game of the outdoor season was a pleasant one.

ISLE of Wedmore's first game of the outdoor season was a pleasant one.

The day opened with an American lunch when around 58 members were on hand to welcome the new captains for this year. Clive Panchaud has been elected captain for the men and Pam Beard will be leading the ladies.

Pam was ladies' captain in 2004 and has nobly taken on this busy task for a second time, ably assisted by Mary Ronald as vice-captain.

The bowling commenced with a Spider which is where the players take up a position on all sides of the green and the jack is placed in the middle. Everyone bowls at the same time with one foot in the ditch and the winner is the player whose bowl ends nearest to the jack.

For the second year running Val Hardwick was the winner, this time receiving a bottle of scotch and a Spider badge. This badge was provided by the charity for Visually Impaired Bowlers and, as usual, a collection was made for this worthy cause, which raised around �35.

Ten ends were played on seven rinks and although it took everyone a few ends to get to grips with bowling outside once again, the afternoon was enjoyed by all.

Both the men and ladies have practice days to look forward to and a few friendly games will be played before the competitive matches start in earnest at the end of April.
