The End of the Lollipop


This is it. When you come to the end of your lollipop all you have left is the stick! We can put the woods away until April next year. What will we find to do with all the time we have ? Now let me think?

Thursday League
Away – Hope Works – 14 September.
Having battled away last week and got a good win could the unthinkable happen and we manage to stay up in the top division? The chap who does all the admin on the league, bless him, only updates the results every year or two so we don’t know how we have done since last weeks match! However, as true Parwichians we would keep right on to the end of road even though we are tired and weary. I’m getting all emotional I must pull myself together. So, back to bowls, considering we were playing the top of the league, two of our doubles pairs performed as if we were top and not bottom. Because of holidays and injury Rick was playing twice and was joined in the game by Dot. They played their little socks off beating Hope’s top pair 21 – 14. Ian J and Harry B just would not give in and finally lost the game on the last end 20 – 21. Best not mention our third pair, but suffice it to say they did not win. After the doubles we were 12 points down.
Now Hope are like a lot of the top teams they usually only play with 9 players and not 12. This dear reader means that 3 of their players also play in the singles and of course the 3 who play twice are the best in the team! We of necessity were also one player short. Of the 6 games we won 4! with Keith and Rick winning against their two best players! The final outcome in the singles still meant we lost 74 – 75. Great effort. The final, final score was Hope 131, Parwich 118, which under normal circumstances would have had us doing cartwheels across the green. Well in our dreams anyway. Will we avoid the big drop? Don’t think so, but playing in the lower division suits us really. The people in the higher echelons take it too seriously. I will let you know.

Just as an aside we did finish fourth in the Tuesday league. Terrific result.

John B.
