AS we enter the autumn the serious side of the outdoor bowling draws to a close and we are down to the last few fun and friendly games.
On Friday, September 18, it was an enjoyable afternoon of bowls between the over-60s and the under-60s. One fours rink and three triples was the format.
With a considerable amount of grey hair on the green it was often difficult to decipher who was on which side, but the under-60s just eased over the line by 59 shots to 51.
