PEDRAS PLAYERS WIN BA CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

Congratulations to Elizabeth Harris, Thea Tushuizen, Peter Harris and Phil King who are the Bowls Algarve Mixed Fours Champions for 2018/19.  They played their final at Valverde on Wednesday 13th March against Gerry and Susan Kinane, Richard Fribbins and Carol Williams from Floresta.  The scores were level after eighteen ends so an extra end was needed which the Pedras four won by one shot.

The winners are pictured here just after vthey received their trophy at the Bowls Algarve presentation dinner at the Hotel Baia Grande in Albufeira on Sunday 24th March.

 

 

 

 

ALEX MARSHALL MBE AT PEDRAS 

 

On a glorious Sunday morning in early February David Reilly succeeded in something that he had been attempting to arrange for some while; he brought Alex Marshall, one of the very best bowlers in the world, to Pedras.  Alex has a string of World, Commonwealth Games and other titles to his credit and has also been honoured by the Queen for his services to the sport.

 

Alex played a pairs match, partnering Peter Harris against David Reilly and Brian Holt.  Peter offered his thoughts on the experience:

 

What a charming and friendly guy Alex was, I played with him against David & Brian and after 7 ends we were 1-9 down, but we came back strongly to win 16-10.
 
Afterwards Alex had a chat with several of the members and answered many questions about his career in the game, plus the championships at Potters and his association with his pairs partner Paul Foster. He then demonstrated his versaylity by singing a duet with Bernie Byrne.
 
The photograph below show Alex with with his playing companions.  Other pictures may be found in the Pedras Gallery.
