Bowls on BBC 2 this week

Post by 1964white »

On now

I defy anyone to tell me this is a easy or an old man's game.

Very skilful & the majority of the top bowlers playing at Potters will be in their 20's to 40's

I heard that the BBC will be promoting a new show that will appeal to all those interested in Bowls
It is called "Watching Heavy Goods vehicles changing into low gear on a very steep hill" Sound riveting

I was very close to emulating my favourite bowls player Nicky Brett yesterday with two similar bowls only a inch short from a crowded jack, outrageous drawing in of bowl but always achievable if you are a confident player.

Me personally I've only lost 4 out of 32 matches in the three league I play in, stunning 34-6 victory yesterday against my evening partner HOOF's team which takes us to 2nd place in the Triples League.

Two big matches imminent which we need to win if we are to become champions. Fourth game of the week for me against 3rd place rivals this afternoon, bit of a bogey side so I suspect a difficult tense match.

On a impressive unbeaten run since Christmas so hopefully our good form will continue

The chairs they're sitting in. Think there the ones from HSL, you know press a button and get slowly raised to the standing position..
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

How about some Bowlsasise Hector? one foot in front of the other, gentle bend of knee, gentle swing of one arm and back to standing..then rest for 2 minutes and do it again...

On your bike Hector or even a swim or a run,
alternatively you could go for a nice long walk, anything to get you out of your rocking chair :lol: you'll feel invigorated my dear Hector, you don't want to seize up before your time
