COMPETITION REPORT

Sensational Iberian Open at Javea Bowls Club

Wow, wow, wow!! I cannot believe that there has ever been a better set of Finals at the Javea Bowls Iberian Open. This highly competitive, prestigious and lucrative tournament, over 3500 euro in Prize Money, came to an end last weekend with some fabulous bowling served up for the spectators. Not for the first time in its’ long history the Finals had to be spread over two days due to the storms experienced earlier in the week. It is impossible to congratulate everyone but I have to mention the Mixed Triples Final which came to a fantastic finale as the team of Rod Warnes, Chris Evans and Clive English overturned a two shot deficit entering the 17th end to beat Yvonne Browne, Bert McLean and Yvonne Briden. Then on Sunday the Ladies Rinks came down to the very last shot of the match when Skip Carol Meare took out shot bowl to secure a narrow victory for her, Olive Lutz, Jenny Rich and Carol Davey against Chris Mawson, Sheila Lucas, Mary Cockell and Maggie Lawley. Yet another fantastic match saw Dudley Davies play possibly the shot of the tournament, again on the last end, to ensure that he and his wife Carol beat home players Matt Taylor and Velia Wood to earn a 400 euro first prize and a 500 euro bonus in the Mixed Aussie Pairs! If that was not enough to satisfy the most eager spectator, the Ladies Singles went to 28 ends before Chris Evans finally won an incredible tussle with Gail Chick by 21 to 20. In the other disciplines Alex Fisher beat John Coates in the Gents Singles and possibly became the oldest winner ever, at the age of 79 and the Gents Rinks saw a win for Dave Gardiner, Denis Reeves, John Pittaway and Clive English against Jonathan Barr, David Meare, Phil Woodhead and John North. Player of the Tournament went to Chris Evans. Finally a special thanks to Chris Evans for organising this 18th Iberian Open in such a splendid way. The amount of time that she has devoted over the last two weeks has been immense! Also our thanks to Bill Barrie for ably assisting and offering guidance. Javea Green Bowls Committee and its Members would like to thank all the competitors from local clubs BBC, Bonalba, El Cid and Finca Guila for their participation and support.
