We generally organise a yearly spring bowls based holiday open to both bowlers and non bowlers. Our May 2016 trip to Dawlish in Devon was so successful that everyone wanted a repeat in 2017. Even more members are now looking forward to the lovely Langstone Cliff Hotel, two matches against well maintained local clubs, a raucous quiz night and much laughter.
Every other year we have an autumn bowls holiday in the sun
In November 2015 we boosted our vitamin D levels by visiting Cyprus and playing against 3 local bowls clubs. This was yet another great opportunity for socialising and much fun was had by all.
This year we are heading to Vilamoura in Portugal in October. Our President and our female coach have been on a fact finding mission together to Portugal. (No scandal though. They recently celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary!)
They reported that the hotel is well situated just across the road from a large marina that is full of restaurants, bars, shops and ice-cream parlours!! Something for everyone!!
They also popped into a local bowls club – the club were very welcoming and they were playing on a lawn grass green which was in very good condition.
