On Saturday the popular annual fixture against fellow ‘parkers’, Princes Park, was held at Albert Park Bowls Club. The number of Albert Park participants exceeded those from Princes Park so both of our coaches and several top players were loaned to the opposition to even up the numbers. In all, nine rinks were filled with triples and fours competing over two sessions. Despite relinquishing key players the home side was able to prevail, winning 10 of 18 rinks. So the shield remains at Albert Park and we look forward to defending it at Princes Park next year.
