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 :wink:

Glossing over the transportation difficulties Leon, if Hector turned out to be really top class, you might end up as his no.1 :mrgreen:

That maybe the case Norm....Hector as my skip :-D

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

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.

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.

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 :lol:
