Birthday boy Brian celebrates in style.

Javea Green Bowls Club was awash with colour yesterday as 84 bowlers turned out for a fun days bowling to celebrate owner and fellow bowler Brian Taylor’s 80th birthday. The invitation said Bright Colours and the participants took heed. Drawn teams of 3 played 2 games of 6 ends, but this was bowling with a difference as each end challenged players to bowls to the left of the jack, short of the jack, behind the jack and even bowl with their opposite hand. This last instruction produced some hilarious results with a few wondering if they had been bowling with the wrong hand for years! The fun format made for a level playing field for top bowlers and novices alike. The overall winning triple with a score of 21 was Keith Beaman, Bob Johnson and Pete Shaw. The Spider was won by Heather Stephens.Afterwards a buffet was served with a glass of well deserved wine, Brian was presented with vouchers to spend at his leisure and a disco provided more exercise for those with energy still to spare.
