Biased Balls !

Last Thursday evening found Brue Valley Rotary Club getting to grips with Outdoor Bowling at Castle Cary Bowls Club. Members of the Bowls Club demonstrated infinite patience when explaining grip (which apparently is all important), bias (more of which later), ends and jacks. Brue Valley were certainly not fast learners; in particular the balls’ inbuilt bias caused many problems throughout the evening. For those who need a lesson on bias – bias is the natural curve built into a bowl creating an arc from the point of releasing the bowl to the point it stops – clear? There were of course moments of individual success including your correspondent’s team being thrashed 16 – 1. One thing was certain – it was all huge fun on a lovely evening. Following the bowls we enjoyed a simple sausage in a roll meal with our lovely hosts. Thanks are due to Castle Cary Bowls Club for making us all so welcome.
