It was a big day for the local Racing and Trotting fraternity on Sunday 10th September 2017, not at the track, but on a different surface, the Capel bowling green.
The Capel Bowls Club invited the Racing and Trotting industry to an inaugural bowling challenge where the two entities played off against each other in a two game event.
Over 50 participants took part in the event which saw some best suited to the 16 seconds track while others failed to stay on the green.
Some moments should have led to a steward’s enquiry as consecutive bowls were sent down on a wrong bias.
Some games ended in a draw while others were blow outs leaving the team no choice but to go for a spell.
The gallops got up to win the event with a combined score of 120 shots while the trotting fraternity managed 108 shots.
The winning racing team was Guyno Rebels which comprised Lou Luciano, Bruce Watkins, M. Dobrigh and B Dobrigh.
