Thank you to our wonderful bingo caller, Jane.

With the Bowling Season only just around the corner, there is an air of anticipation blowing in the wind, along with the more mundane snow and hail and rain we’ve been having of late. The Green will open in just five weeks and the first competitive game of the season is the same weekend. Now is the time to get out the old bowling shoes to check if they have gone mouldy in the back of the utility room, and to judge if they will last another season or need replacing. Now is the time to check the woods, polish them and perhaps touch up the paint markings, and replace the club stickers. Questions such as “will I fit into the bowling trousers and team shirt” after a winter of inactivity and indulgence, and “where did I put the waterproofs?” In a way, it’s a bit like preparing for Christmas without the tangled fairy lights and presents.

Its a familiar feeling for all sports participants who have a Season approaching, and is tinged with the usual doubts of whether the old skills, and tricks, are going to be good enough against the competition this year, or whether the enforced break will have taken the edge off. Anticipation. That human mix of confidence and trepidation and quiet excitement, ahead of the challenge of the game. Sport is good for you, and its not all about the exercise.
