Trip to the Isle of Bohemian Bowling Club
Northampton Whyte Melville Bowling Club
On Sunday 22nd August 26 bowlers and 2 guests made the journey to play against The Island Bohemian Bowling Club on Fry's Island at Reading. Janet and Gill organized a raffle on the way and with great timing it was completed as we arrived.
Everyone has to be transported to the island by small boats, and everything ran smoothly until somehow one of the engines fell off the boat and ended up at the bottom of the Thames, fortunately after a few scary moments the boat was pulled into the side.
We were made to feel very welcome, and everyone was excited to play in this unique setting.
After 21 ends on 6 rinks Whyte Melville managed to win 125 to 103 shots.
We then had a “few “drinks and a meal in the clubhouse, and we're entertained with a song from our hosts. Then after a group photo we were ferried to the coach for our journey home.
