title, Mark O Looney of Aer Lingus was selected as BLI Bowler of the Year 2012.
Well done Mark !!! Your club is proud of you and your bowling achievements.
The bowls trip in October to Torremolinos was very enjoyable. Again, our thanks go to Tom Smith for his tireless and meticulous work on behalf of the touring group.
Our Winter League team have won their first five games and hold top of the table status in the Northern Section, with a game in hand due to “ an absence” when on our spanish trip. It is early days yet but a good start is, as they say, half the work. Well done to all involved.
