This is the new webpage for the Derek Scanlon Memorial Tournament between the Amigos Club de Bowling and Torrevieja Bowling Centre. It has been run for the last couple of years but this is the first time that the results and some photos have been placed on the website.
Derek was a good friend of many bowlers in Torrevieja and the friendly match was set up by those friends to honour his memory. Most of us in Arboleas had not met him but from we have been told he was a great guy and would love the way this bi / tri annual event is developing into one where people can make new friends.
Once again the two clubs met up to contest the Derek Scanlon Trophy. This time it was on 12th March at the Ozone Bowling Centre in Torrevieja. A great day was had by all. Many of the Arboleas team had not bowled there before and to say it was an experience is an understatment. The centre is great but the lanes proved difficult to manage. That said, we all enjoyed it and will love to go back again, oh and the Arboleas team came out the winners again. But it is not all about winning it is about meeting and making new friends which we have.
Torrevieja had 21 bowlers and Almeria Tenipin Bowling had 15 bowlers. An excellent turnout.
The next match has already been scheduled for th 25th June. at the Almeria Tenoin Bowling Centre.
The result from the match played on 20th November saw the Amigos Club de Bowling came out on top by just 9 pins. The teams had 16 & 14 bowlers playing and everyone had a great day and a lovely meal afterwards. We all look forward to the return meeting in Torrevieja in February or early March.
