Not so long ago we were complaining about the cold weather. Well, it has certainly come back to bite us, hasn’t it?
All these days over 40°C is just too much and it has spoilt all the bowls during the past week.
Due to the heat, there was no pennant bowls Friday, no Keith’s Friday, no pennant bowls Saturday and no champion of champions played.
Hot weather is again forecast this weekend, so Keith’s Friday might be called off again due to the club’s heat rule.
There is no pennant on Saturday, but the club will have a triples tournament of a different kind on Saturday starting at 4.30pm with a barbecue afterwards, so get your names in for that and then hopefully we can all get back to normal and play pennant along with Keith’s Friday next week.
In the meantime, keep cool.
