Bowling, Water of Leith 1st 16

To try and get my head into more regular blogging i am going to give an update on my bowling exploits and usually give excuses for why i failed to win.

Tonight we were playing against Slateford a good solid team always there at the end of the season and they have won the league 5 of the last 7 years. We were at their green it was windy and raining for the entire game but it was an enjoyable social experience, we got thumped as a rink and as a team. We lost 4-1 over all, 4 rinks = 1 point for each game and a point for the aggregate score. We lost by 14 shots and this was probably a fair result, they were superior through out the match but they did have a touch of fortune when it mattered.

My rink is now 0 for 2 for the season and I have decided to step down to third and allow my third to skip on Friday, just something different see how we get on.

Next game - Water of Leith 1st 16 v Colinton Bowling Club

  1. I know this post is in English, but it's also in British. Might you explain this game for a poor clueless Yank? ;-)
