On Wednesday, 17th July, 2019 the Club enjoyed a visit from the Potters Group who arrived on a cruise and docked in Mahon for the day.

28 bowlers came to S`Algar to play against us, headed by Greg Harlow, who is a World Indoor Bowls Champion.  We had a most enjoyable morning - play started at 10am.  After 8 ends we had a short break up in the bar where the Hotel had provided refreshments for all. Another 8 ends then a final drink and farewell to the group as they were having lunch in the Hotel San Luis before returning to the ship. Photos are shown in the photo gallery.

 Well the weather was good to us today as we held our annual Fun Day - and it was exactly that, fun!  We had a good turn out making 6 teams of 6 and the winning team was "Wendy`s Wonders" with a total of 30 points - well ahead of second place, Elaine`s team with 17 points.  Individual prizes went to Richard Thompson and Richard Whiteoak for being the highest scorers with 11 points each.  The last game of the morning was the Spider in which all competitors stand in a big circle around the green and aim at a target in the middle - the nearest bowl was won by Barry, one of our visitors for the day.  Congratulations to everyone, it was a great day!
