Corstorphine BC, 2019
During the afternoon of 7th October 2019, the Mojacar Bowls Club had the opportunity and pleasure of competing against a visiting team from the Corstorphine Bowls Club in Scotland.
Corstorphine Bowls Club was originally established in 1891and situated approximately 5 km west of Edinburgh .
The Corstorphine visiting bowling team included approximately 40 bowlers who took the opportunity of making a special entrance by marching from the Servigroup Marina Playa Hotel to the Mojacar Bowls Club with a piper leading the way playing the bagpipes, a truly stirring moment not seen or heard before here in Mojacar.
Prior to the bowls match, a ‘spider’ took place where all competitors do their best to cast their bowl at a target in the middle of the bowls green, the nearest of which won a bottle of Tamnavulin single malt scotch whisky, a prize indeed to focus the minds of everyone.
The usual exchange of gifts was made between the captains of the visiting club and Mojacar Bowls Club, following which the competition started in earnest.
The bowls match took place with the usual very competitive but friendly atmosphere, the occasion was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
