St Andrew's Day Gala at Valverde

St Andrew’s Day Gala at Valverde

On November 30, Valverde Lawn Bowls Club in Almancil held its first St Andrew’s Day Gala when 30 members, augmented by a few visitors, started off playing two games of triples each of 8 ends.

Lunchbreak included pizza and a drink before play resumed for a further 8 ends.

The result was Winter Members 111 shots v Resident Members 108 shots, with the best two winning triples receiving a cash prize.

An enjoyable day was had by all, and it is hoped this event will become an annual date in our club’s diary.
