You need to get out & play the game my dear Hector, I guarantee you'd be hooked
You never know you could end up my team as my No.1

That maybe the case Norm....Hector as my skip
Right now unfortunately I'm skipping our evening pairs team although I prefer to play No.1. I like to put the pressure on the opposition having a clear run to the jack with accurate bowling where as skipping is somewhat difficult at times as ones line maybe blocked, much more pressure !
I made the decision to play No.2 in our triples team as I can control the team play/tactics much better from that position helping the No.1 & advising the skip if required
There seems to be a lot of skipping...
Is that to keep you warm at half time??
Possibly so the wife can't land a punch - sorry Jill, I know you're not like that. Couldn't resist.
Norm wrote:It's a long time since I watched bowls - it's a long time since I lived in England. I played a little when younger but nowhere near your level. I always enjoyed the fresh air and gentle exercise but, when I moved to Acomb in 1967 I had a young family and shift work. I went to watch Leeds as often as I could but bowls faded into the background.
I only wish I'd taken up bowls in 1967 Norm, I was too busy playing football, rugby & cricket.
There are some very good teenagers & lads in their 20's/30's playing in our area at a much higher level than myself. With bowls you can continue to play the sport throughout the whole of your life if you remain fit & healthy. Keeps this little ol' man active
