Remember: We don't stop laughing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop laughing!
One of the old stories that is still funny today supposedly happened in Harrow a few Years ago. A well known skip was having a hard time from the other three in his team who had failed to contribute anything throughout the game. At the last end the number three walked down to the mat to play his first bowl and pausing shouted back up the rink. "Where's our nearest bowl".
"In your ****** hand", answered the skip.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their support towards the club and encourage you to support them in return. Don't forget to mention if you are a Belmont Bowls Club member.
