A total of ten people from the Lea SMBC  attended the above ,seven were
bowlers and three non bowlers. Once again we came away with trophies, Gwyneth
Jones -Colin Smith with Herbie Crabbe from Dorset made up a triples team and
won the plate competition, also in their last game they won a hotshot medal.

Unfortunately June Smith hurt her shoulder prior
to going to Torquay and was unable to play.

Therefore Mary and Tony Gardner were joined by
Di Robinson . This team were unlucky to loose two of there last three games by
one shot in each game after getting to the play offs for the main competition.

Pauline and David Mills teamed up with John
Gibbons and reached the quarter finals of the main competition.

Gwyn and Colin were also runners up in the
pairs plate competition 

Generally a good break with perfect sunny weather..
