Over 200 quid? Bowling machine balls must be made of gold!

You should look up the cost of Bola balls... they are darn expensive !!

Marlins are 11k
Pros are 2.5k

Add in feeders, stands etc... its not cheap to buy or continue to run

Well, a fine time was had by all - a little light on attendance, but as we had the whole hall we were able to work it so it suited everyone.

Despite a fearsome 6-pronged spin attack, plus @Chalkie  (I've wiped you from my mind @LEACHY48 ) batting was tricky (as @uknsaunders man-plums found out), but most people got a decent hit.

Many thanks to @Mpt7 and @petehosk for organisng, and me for being generally awesome.

High points of the session were:

Leachy's 'raw pace'

@gpun22  camera gear getting cleaned up again by Pete Hosk

Nick Saunders cleaning himself up by edging the ball onto his left testicle and then the stumps

A phalanx of pink dog-throwers

Merlyn repeatedly spitting 2 balls out at a time (it's a fiend I tell you!)



A few pics will follow.

Ouch, my seam bowling was fabulous 😂 but I'm all seriousness. A very good day and a shame I couldn't stay for nick hitting himself in the plums!! Hopefully we will do it all again soon
