Spanish Nationals 2013

We were one of the sponsors for this years Spanish Nationals 2013 which were held at 5 venues and ran from the 12th May until the 22nd May. During the event we were present nearly every day at different venues and finished off at the quesada bowls club for the Finals. This was a great event and good to watch all the top bowlers plus it also gave us the chance to meet everyone from all bowling clubs not only Spain but also Tenerife who I have to say were a great crowd of people who always made me feel welcome. We sponsored the ladies singles and trios events and presented the runners up and winners with there trophies and medals and also decided to add a little extra touch by giving them each a nice bouquet of flowers from our flower shop we own as well called Diamond Flores. This went down really well with the ladies so much so I also presented flowers to the runners up of the ladies rinks from La Siesta a few days later as they are good friends of mine and were disappointed not to receive any flowers on finals day as I was not a sponsor for there event.

Visit to El Rancho Bowls Club During Spanish Nationals 2013.

We attended El rancho bowls club a few times during the Nationals and were always made welcome. Problem was I got sunburnt the first day as there is no shade there but remembered to wear a cap the next time. All part of the service plus a nice tan.

Spanish National Finals at Quesada

The last few days of the nationals for the semi finals and Finals were held at the Quesada Bowls club There were many spectators at all times watching some great bowling and also having a good time which is the main thing.

El Cid Celebration week. July 2013

I was invited to this special week for the club and was glad to be a part of the celebrations. It was a great day which included meeting world champion Andy Thompson who I have to say is a very nice guy and was happy to have a photo taken with me for the website. The day also included members having lessons and a tutorial which I joined and was so inspired I decided to have a go for the first time which I have to say I enjoyed very much and did not want to stop. So I am now looking forward to another lesson at a local club. El cid is in a fantastic setting with views to the sea and a venue I would be happy to visit again at anytime if invited. Thank you to Sara, Phil and Andy Thompson.

UK Ladies championships 2013 Leamington. UK

Went along to visit the suppliers of lawn bowls products during my holiday in August. Had a really good day out and met some of the main suppliers in the UK and found it all very interesting. Also watched some very good bowlers and some were only around 20 years old which was really good to see as we dont see many that age in spain.

European Championships 2013. Spain

I was very honoured to be offered the supplier of bowls products for the european championships which were held in spain at the end of september to 4th october. It was a fantastic week and great to see some top bowling and also meet members from a lot of the teams. But well done to the spanish team who won gold in the ladies pairs with lynn and jan and also finished with the bronze overall team with Graham and pete which was a fantastic achievement. It was hard work over the week setting up each day but I really enjoyed it all. Infact so much I have now started bowling myself so was getting a few tips from the UK lads. They ended up winning the overall team prize and asked me to supply them with the championship shirts I was selling which I was happy to do. I was also given a signed shirt from one of the lads which was great and I will enjoy wearing now and again. Lets hope we see this held in spain over the coming years.
