Surrey County Bowlers Asso

Douglas Park Bowling Club welcomed a party of Gents bowlers, together with their mascot, from Surrey County Bowlers Association on 3 September 2012. The party were served lunch in the clubhouse before going out onto the Green. Five teams from Douglas Park Bowling Club and one team from Largs Bowling Club enjoyed a full afternoon of bowls. The weather was kind, the friendship was exceptional and the only dark cloud was the result. The Surrey bowlers demonstrated excellent bowling skills and left the home teams wondering what hit them. Douglas Park gifted club badges to the Surrey bowlers and they in turn gifted the home teams with souvenir pens. They also presented a beautiful plaque to the Douglas Park president. After the game the bar became the meeting point until the bus came to return them to their hotel.  Following a night’s rest they moved onto to a visit to a distillery to set them up for their next two matches in Kilmarnock and Ayr.
