Many new techniques were brought to the bowling green when friends, families and members of Craigantlet Lodge of Friendship No. 486, held their first Charity Bowling Fun Day on Saturday 16th September 2023, at Belmont Bowling Club, Belfast.
For many it was their first time on a Green, and it soon became apparent that it wasn’t as easy as it looks. Woods were being either sent lamely curling away from the Jack, or fired so hard that some had to take cover on the sides.
After a few practice sessions, many got their eye in and standards excelled.
A four way tie in the final playoff subsequently saw Chris & Ellie declared champions!
Everyone soon retired indoors for food and a few beverages where stories were regaled of their 'backhands', 'forehands', 'follow throughs', and how many ended up "in the ditch".
