I can see that it is important to understand the rules...any disputes could get nasty with those weapons at the ready, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I would not wat one of those silver balls between the eyes Ray

Everyone looks very excited to start the game. smile
Bill Phillips: The excitement grew Frances, to near fever pitch
A great game to play, and some take it very seriously.....
Great series.
Bill Phillips: We took it seriously. Once you start the competitive instinct kicks in!
They are all well aware of the rules Bill... they are just placing bets with the bookie holding the clip board....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I didn't think competitors were allowed to bet on the result!

''Look you daft muppet ... you are holding the ball the wrong way round ... don't you know that they have a top and a bottom ...''


Oozing with excitement ... er umm aren't they.
Bill Phillips: understated excitement comrade. They are British

I suppose it's fair to say that this is just about as exciting at Droitwich gets in the brief moments when it isn't raining
Bill Phillips: This is the village of Crowle, so not technically Droitwich
I'm excited to see a little action...
Bill Phillips: Don't hold your breath E

Did I hear someone say it's kinda like shooting marbles??? grin
Bill Phillips: I suppose it is. Also a bit like crown green bowling but more rustic and violent

I hope its not washout like the test match
Bill Phillips: Much as I wanted us to get the draw and retain the ashes, not like that. You deserved to at least have the chance to win the match. The umpiring in this series has been dire

I wonder where all the people come from - it seems to be a communicative game for elder persons like me and you!
Bill Phillips: This was a Lions club social and these are friends of mine......well they were!

They are taking it all very serious, as they should when learning a new skill
Bill Phillips: It was very competitive Aussie

Those women have balls Bill.
Bill Phillips: You are correct Chad. A lot of balls
Even more balls!
Bill Phillips: a load of balls Frank
Doesn't this image just sum up how very exciting it is to be retired, the guy in the pink shirt is having a ball of a time!
Bill Phillips: You wait a day or two Brian!
Did you win?
Bill Phillips: Ange did with her partner. I was runner up!
They all seem to take it quite seriously!
Bill Phillips: It was very competitive Richard
As long as no one says 'Jehovah' smile
Bill Phillips: Is that a bad thing to say?
Ball-clutching seems contagious...smile
When there are hard things to throw, according to Monty Python

I like the team strip. Is the away team or the home team. What a lot of boules it is.
