The VP's 21/22 Indoor programme came to a close on Sunday with a 100-75 win against the Bucks County Vice Presidents at Foxhill IBC, Aylesbury.

The halfway tea and biscuit break saw the sides level at 45 shots each, however, we obviously chose the right biscuits as a 15 shot lead had ben created after the first couple of end in the second half.

Newcomer to the VP's David Lattimore skipped the rink of Bill Pointer, Roger Oliver and Percy Hickman to a 6 shot win,  20-14 after a being behind until the twelfth end.

Nextdoor on rink 2 Bill Jarvie, Ian Whelpton, Paul McGrath and skip Michael Morris took thirteen ends to get their noses in front, then won five of the remaining ends for a 21-15 victory.

The middle rink of Roy Radband, John Stephens, Chris Weller and Michael Andrew did the exact opposite of the other four rinks. From leading 13-11 at the two thirds mark, they could only collect a single over the last seven ends to finally lose 14-22.

Gerald Fountain, John McGeough, Alan Rowe and Alex Fleming were the exact opposite of their next rink neighbours, managing to move into the lead on the thirteen end and then taking five of the remaining eight ends to close on 24-14 and a chance of the highest winning rink.

Bernie May, Tim Cox, Brian Clarke "playing his first VP game" and Nigel Satchell led from the first end in their game, winning 13 ends on their way to a 21-10 highest winning rink.c

The after-match meal of Lasagne, mixed salad and Garlic bread, yes garlic bread, followed by a very tasty sweet was only surpassed by the raffle, when the first five of the six prizes were collected by Oxfordshire bowlers.

We look forward to the start of our 2022 outdoor programme on Sunday May 15 when we will visit Frampton-on-Severn BC for our game against Gloucestershire VP's. Our 2020 and 2021 fixture at this venue was victim of Covid 19 so fingers are crossed for this year.
