I had personal experience of this in the last couple of days. I played a tournament on Friday and could not find the line or the weight on any of the greens I played and finished with three losses. The next day I played at a different club and couldn’t do anything wrong. Leading for Bob Bates and Pat Bylok in a mixed triples at Whitby I hardly put a foot wrong. Why can’t I capture that magic every time I play?
Still it’s those good times that make you feel so much better about your game and make you forget those bad days. Thanks for inviting me to play with you Pat and Bob – it was one of the good times.
After a hectic schedule in the last few weeks it has been a relatively quiet week but it will start to get busier again next weekend with the District 14 singles playdowns which we will host. Bob Bates, Carl Ferguson and I will be playing in that but since entries have not yet closed it is not known who the other competitors will be. Also next weekend Ben and Baylee van Steijn will be heading to Dartmouth NS to compete in the Canadian junior championships and we wish them well
I called in at the club to watch some of the juniors on Wednesday and there are some pictures of them on the photos page. I’m always impressed by the seriousness with which they take their game and their good conduct whist still having fun. And talking of juniors I won this week’s Bowls Canada photo award for the picture below of Matthew. Bowls Canada said “Bill has captured the seriousness of a junior taking measurement. Congratulations!”2017 Photos
Not a bad week then, I’ve already forgotten Friday’s bad performance!
It’s a funny old game.
