Cabrera Lawn Bowling Club held its two most prestigious competitions simultaneously between the 27th January and the 3rd February 2019, namely The Ladies and Gent's Singles Club Championship. This competition is the first player to score 21 shots. This is a very sought after title as the champions name goes on the clubs board of honour.

As always there were some very good rounds and the two finals were contested between David Walters and Bob Craig and Carole Walters and Penny Craig. This is only the second time in the clubs long history that there were two husband and wives in the finals.

The Gent's final was a very even contest as after 17 ends the score was 13-13. Bob then pulled away and was 20-14 up and only needed another shot to win. Sadly for Bob however David got his second wind and scored 7 in the next three ends to win the final 21-20 and the Club Championship.

In the Ladies Final the two ladies were drawing after 12 ends 12-12 so a real tussle was ensuing. Gradually, though Carole started to pull away and went on the win the Championship 21-12 as sadly Penny did not score again.

Many congratulations to both David and Carole, who have only been members of Cabrera LBC for a few months, and commiserations to Bob and Penny.

Two absolutely fabulous finals to watch.

Many thanks also to the Umpires, Markers and spectators.
