LOCAL FREEMASONS from Caledonia Lodge recently hosted a bowling afternoon at ‘The Club’, Calle Toledo, Ciudad Quesada.
Forty-eight brethren and guests arrived for a 2.00pm start and were organised into 12 teams of four by the Charity Steward.
Each of the six lanes on the green were occupied by two teams.
With many participants having never played bowls before, those who had played plus two members of the club first held a short ‘how-to’ session before the afternoon of games began.
With winning teams moving to the right, all teams played each other throughout the course of the afternoon.
The soft shoes and woods (bowls to the uninitiated) were provided by the club, although some participants brought their own.
Games finished at 4.00pm, when cream teas and sandwiches were enjoyed by all.
A grand charity raffle was held – which offered some great prizes and raised an outstanding €350.
A further donation was added to the fund, bringing the total raised to €370.
At the end of the day, the Charity Steward declared all participants were deemed winners and each lady was presented with a bottle of Cava.
