49 members of the Beckenham, Bromley and District Bowling Association including 10 members from Francis Drake BC went 'on tour' to the Derwent Hotel in Torquay. The tour this year was led by current Association President and FDBC member Mick Singer. As well as bowling against local clubs on 5 afternoons the week included a great day out on the local steam railway and cruise on the River Dart, a theatre trip and time to explore the delightful Torbay area.
The bowls matches included some wins and some losses but everyone had a great time and enjoyed the challenge of new greens and the warm welcome given by the local bowlers.
The BB&BDA has regular matches against local clubs throughout both the Outdoor and Indoor season, as well as competitions and members matches. All members of affiliated clubs, which includes Francis Drake BC, are eligible to play in these. For further information and a schedule of matches please see Mick or Ron. It's a great way to meet other bowlers and play on different greens.
