Cabrera Lawn Bowling Club hosted the Turre Open Mixed Rinks on Saturday and Sunday the 14th and 15th of October 2017. As the name suggests it is open to any club to enter a team. We had a very good response probably due to the fact that the Cabrera Avalon Invitation is being held the following month so teams that were entered in that competition used this one to see how they performed. Fourteen teams entered and the majority of clubs in the area were represented which was excellent. The competition is played on a rinks round robin format over 7 ends and the teams split into two groups, the winners of Group A playing the winners of Group B in the final.

Group A winners were Graham and Kath Patrick with Reg Birmingham and Sylvia Pritchard all from Almeria BC against Group B winners Malcolm and Jean Smallwood with Rod and Lyn Band who were all from Cabrera LBC.

Reg's team got off to a great start and were 4-0 up after 2 ends. Malcolm's team did manage a mini rally but sadly for them could not press home the home advantage they had and Reg's team were eventual winners 9-3.

Many congratulations to Reg, Graham, Kath and Sylvia with commiserations to Malcolm, Rod, Lyn and Jean who put up a gallant fight.
