On Monday October 6th 2014 Spalding Springfields Probus played the Sleaford Probus A team. Everybody met shortly before the match and all were very friendly. I was Lead on Rink 2 and it was my first game in thirty years. When I did bowl previously it was outdoors on grass and so the experience of a fast indoor green was totally new and a bit baffling. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it, as I told Alan Larner our team captain. Mind you, as it looks as though I am available to play in all the matches this season, I wonder how long I can cover my incompetence with this particular cover story. The results unfortunately only show the Spalding Springfields Probus side as I forgot to obtain Sleaford’s details.
