  1. Top Skips, Twitter and the 'Dear Departed'.








    It’s my fault. I should never have listened to that stupid boy in the first place.

    “Vernon,” he said, “if you want your writing career to be a success you have to engage with social media.”

    “Social media,” I replied, “what’s that when it’s at home then?”

    I was sorry I asked because

  2. Bowlers, Beware The Hidden Dangers Of Sports Research!




    According to Raymond I should be exploring the outer reaches of sporting research in my blog. He makes it sound a bit like an episode of Star Trek.

After a few pints of Guinness most of our members would probably believe ...

  3. Wobbling at the Point of Delivery.

    In my father’s day the great attraction of bowls was, and I quote:

    “Vernon boy, its cheap as chips!”

    How times have changed. My father must be turning in his grave up the allotment.
    Nowadays lots of clubs have their own different coloured tops just like football teams. Some even change them every other year!

    I can still vividly recall the day my father handed me my first ...

  4. Fifty Shades of Rhondda Grey



    Vern has just been encouraged to write a blog that will ride on the popularity of Fifty Shades.
    It's mainly unchartered waters for Vern or at least waters he hasn't fished in for years!
    However he's given it a go but as a new member he does not wish to give offence to any existing members.

  5. Bowls and the Power of Brylcreem


    Hello again, Vernon Lewis, Top Skip, here.


    Today I’m going to explain why:


    • (i) this particular coach thinks using two fingers is acceptable on the bowling green and
    • (ii) how Brylcreem can give you the edge in a tight match.


    When I started bowling as a young lad I had to be very careful what hand signals I used on the green. Most of the bowlers in those days ...
