We had a fantastic day today for St Ives Fives. The weather gods were kind - it rained at lunch time but morning and afternoon were both fine.
17 visiting clubs plus St Ives played in the competition. The St Ives team of Vicki, Di, Rhonwen, Jan and Shizuko played very well and came in 3rd overall.
Nick created a delicious lunch for us.
All in all, a great day.
Di McBryde and Vicki Bartrop played the Consistency Singles Final. The bowls were described as "inspiring". Both ladies shared the lead throughout most of the match but Vicki managed to get ahead over the last few ends. Spectators were most complimentary about the standard of bowls. Congratulations to both ladies for playing so well. Extra congratulations to Vicki for taking out the win.
We have now managed to complete the 2nd round of the Consistency Singles. We saw some excellent games on Tuesday and two close games today. The semi-final will be next Tuesday 19th April.
