The airport of El Altet in Alicante was the gateway for 75% of foreign tourists who used low cost airlines to visit the Community in October, despite the insistence by one airline, namely Ryanair that the

airport and area relies solely on their domination of the facility. In October, a total of 414,069 international passengers arrived in the region with lowcost airlines, of which a total of 313,726 landed at El Altet while the others travelled into Manises, Valencia. The overall decline in passenger numbers Continued on Page 2

Continued from Page One to Spain stands at 1.7% in October, of which there is a drop of 10.2% for the region overall. These figures may well prove refreshing to the airport authority AENA, who is standing firm against Ryanair, with the court judgements supporting them, saying that the airline will not be allowed to compromise safety at Alicante by being given dispensation for more aircraft to be allowed to use stairs for passengers, rather than the covered walkways. The airport authority this week issued a statement reiterating its stance on the use of walkways. Ryanair have meanwhile complained that AENA has “rejected” their offer to increase passenger to the airport, and create jobs for workers, in exchange for the unilateral withdrawal of walkways, and are now threatening to divert their flights, and 600,000 passengers, to the new Corvera airport, with its new road network directly linking the Murica region with the Costa Blanca. The director of El Altet, Santiago Martínez-Cava, ensures that El Altet will continue to grow with or without this single airline, as there is already a 7.5% increase in seats in January offered by the

Monday, 3rd December, 2012 advent of new schedules with other airlines using Alicante, plus a range of new operators and routes, using up the vacancies created by Ryanair, providing an even more diverse range of flights and connections than ever before, which is already beginning to bear fruit by the closing of the gap in the market which has already been seen at the late end of the summer and into autumn. According to the latest data, Escandinavian has increased flights by 187%, Air Algerie by 110%, Norwegian air by 69%, Transavia by 20%, Jet2 by 18%, Air Berlin by 13.2%, and Easyjet has increased flights by 5.5% to Alicante already, and that doesn´t include the additional flights and routes provided by the likes of British Airways to London Heathrow and Jet 2 to East Midlands, plus the wide range of services to Russia and Ukraine and many more besides, including the rapid growth of Vueling, which has already increased flight by 46% this winter. The Ryanair announcement to move to Corvera should support the fact that the airport will be available for operations soon, and any doubt still remaining as to whether it will actually open should now be dismissed, as, according to the Minister of Public Works, Antonio Sevilla, flights into Corvera Airport will begin next spring, but this will not result in the immediate closure of San Javier, saying that “AENA has said that the two airports will initially be run alongside each

other. One cannot be closed completely with operations then beginning in the other.” The minister made this statement at the regional assembly, also stating that a small amount of electrical work still had to be completed, but the main runway should be able to open to traffic in a matter of months, which would then begin a transition of around six months for flights currently using San Javier, seeing a gradual transfer of both flights and staff. The airport will still need to obtain safety certifications of both the airport facilities and of surrounding airspace as well as approval from EASA and AENA though, before this can happen, but that is thought to be nothing more than a paper exercise. The fuel to the fire of the doubters was encouraged by the announcement by Jet 2 that they will continue to fly into San Javier during the summer of 2013, but this announcement actually works alongside the official statements made by the government. Although Ryanair, for their part, may not feel welcome at Alicante anymore, Murcia’s Minister of Culture and Tourism, Pedro Alberto Cruz, said that he would enthusiastically welcome Ryanair into Corvera airport, saying, “airports have to adjust to the needs of the airlines rather than the other way round and one thing that I would guarantee about the operation at Corvera is that we will be extremely flexible to each individual operator. As such we would be delighted to welcome Ryanair to a new home in Corvera.”

Keith Carter Branch Chairman said this was a great result bearing in mind the economic situation that everyone is in. It goes to show how people still hold in great esteem our service men and women past and present. The money raised in Spain remains in the country to help welfare cases. Any money that is not used at the end of each year is sent to the United Kingdom to help boost their funds. Keith also said he would like to thank all of the Branch Members who helped in collections, distributed Poppy Boxes, organised events and golf tournaments. Without their hard work throughout the year this amount would not have been achievable.

FORMER TORREVIEJA MAYOR SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS IN PRISON

The former mayor of Torrevieja and the regional deputy of the Partido Popular (PP), Pedro Ángel Hernández Mateo, has been sentenced to three years in prison and banned from public office for seven years, having been found guilty in court of offences in relation to the award of the municipal waste collection contract of 2004. According to the statement issued on Friday by the High Court of Valencia, the former mayor manipulated the bidding process, through a complex system, in order to ensure that the 97.8 million euro contract was successfully awarded to the company Necso Generala Entrecanales-Services Group. The ruling said that his actions can only be described as arbitrary and prejudicial to the public interest and to the other companies that had submitted bids for the contract. In addition to the prison sentence, Mateo must also pay a fine of 50 euro a day for 7 months, totalling 10,500 euro, and compensation to the city of Torrevieja of an additional 12,000 euro. He is also obliged to bear the costs of the criminal proceedings. The evidence had suggested that Mateo had a preconceived plan set out to manipulate the Municipal Tenders Committee held on March 24th in 2004, which outlined the technical reports on companies and candidates for the award of the contract. Previous evidence had suggested that this was the only single contract that Mateo had personally looked after during his term as Mayor, which had increased suspicions. Then, as the contractual award was unable to be resolved, Mateo announced the recruitment of an external board to oversee the tender, comprising of three law firms, the minimum required by the Public Procurement Act. However, the mayor is said to have only consulted a single law firm, namely Ariño y Asociados, who also had a business relationship with the company that won the award. The mayor then ordered two municipal resolutions, which were printed and signed, explaining that he had consulted the three offices, and that is where the crime of forgery is now said to have been committed, given that one of the firms did not even exist. The award followed a rapid progression through the Tenders Committee held on April 8, who, based on the reports, would finally approve the award to the proposed company, Necso. According to evidence presented, Mateo himself altered the composition of the incremental table assigned to the contractual award, in

order to ensure a favourable vote. It was also the first time on record that the Mayor had got involved in this way, rather than using a casting vote, which the court considers would have raised suspicions of his involvement with opposition political groups. In summing up, the ruling states that Mateo signed resolutions that have been proven to be false, “manipulated” the will of various municipal bodies involved in the adjudication process to “circumvent” the opposition of the technicians and ensure that the contract was awarded to Necso. There has already been a public outcry at the ruling, with many people disgusted at how lenient the sentence and fine have been. One commentator said that, “Three years is a very short term of imprisonment, considering he tried to blame a technician who had died”. Another said that “12,000 euro compensation is laughable”, and a third, “It´s a total nonsense, very little conviction and the compensation is just a Christmas gift”. In a statement, the General Secretary of the opposition PSPV in Alicante, David Cerdán, stressed that the conviction for forgery and breach of trust, “marks the beginning of the decomposition process which lives in the Valencia PP“, highlighting the fact that this ruling also coincides with the resignation on Friday of José Manuel Vela, the finance minister for the PP, who was charged with allegedly leaking a report under the “CASO Cooperación” investigation. The judgment, can, and no doubt will, be appealed to the Supreme Court. The President of the Generalitat Valenciana, Alberto Fabra, confirmed after the ruling, that Mateo will immediately be removed from his post as Deputy, and that the PP will open an internal investigation into the incident.

SMELLY TRUCKS GET UP RESIDENTS’ NOSE Residents living in the residential area next to the polígono industrial Casa Grande say that the constant movement of refuse trucks into and out of their waste collection depot located in the Avenida Delfina Viudes is causing them a great deal of local discomfort. They say that the movement of the trucks as well as the smell discharged from the site is making their lives most unpleasant. Acciona, the company operating the waste collection and disposal concession, had the operational headquarters of their vehicle fleet located in a facility at La Marquesa, close to the natural lakes, the Laguna of Torrevieja, where they operated without a license for over seven years, but the council closed the site last August. As such the company was forced to move its head office to the new depot in Torrevieja. This meant the transfer of all facilities, workshops, laundry services, changing rooms and vehicle parking. Now, the residents living in the vicinity say that the unpleasant odors, plus the constant noise of these heavy trucks from eleven at night until early in the morning, is making their lives unbearable. The Residential area, a complex of flats and apartments, was authorized by the city planners long after the Casa Grande industrial park was first built. This is not the first time that residents have clashed with Acciona. A spokesman for the local association told the Leader that there have been have problems with the movement of the company's fleet of buses for many years. Joaquín Albaladejo PP, spokesman for the government team, said he had no record of any complaint regarding the waste disposal vehicles, although his intention was now to speak to the local residents and see the real extent of the problem. The Acciona concession to collect and dispose of household waste in Torrevieja expires in August 2014.

SIX THOUSAND EURO INTEREST EVERY DAY FOR TORREVIEJA As we previously reported, Torrevieja has been somewhat ahead of the game in presenting their 2013 budget for approval, and with their new onus on transparency they had given the budget to the opposition parties before the discussions took place. It was therefore inevitable that those not in government would scrutinise the figures to the last cent. It has been noted that the budget labelled as “telecommunications” has been set at 368,000 euro for 2013, which is 112,000 euro less than this year, and is presumably cheaper now that the residents of Torrevieja are not expected to pay for the sexual pleasure and competition phone calls for some of the councillors serving them, although the final outcome of the investigation into the telephone scandal in Torrevieja is expected “very soon”, according to Mayor Eduardo Dolón. Assuming that the waste on telephones is now under control, the eyes have turned to debt repayments, which reveal that Torrevieja will be paying 6,808 euro in interest every single day, toward the interest levied on 18 loans, totalling some 72 million euro. The increase in interest next year has been put down to the fact that the local government must repay cash advances given to them to help pay suppliers from the previous administration. Within the budget, opposition members are also questioning such items as 303,000 euro which has been set aside for hiring private secu-

rity firms, 450,000 euro for the renting of a property on behalf of the town hall, as well as the huge wage bill which is set aside to pay the 700 members of staff that the town hall employs, but, not including expenses, the councillors and the mayor are set to claim 883,409 euro for their salaries alone, and the Mayor even has two “official” cars. Although some of those in opposition have described elements of the budget as “waste”, the council have offered the defence that Torrevieja is just like any other town council. That said, one of the more positively received notions of the budget is that the tender for maintaining the 18,000 street lights in the city, which will be awarded to a private company, also includes a clause that the company responsible for maintenance must also pay the electricity supply bill, which will result in a significant saving to the town hall, especially as a private contractor is more likely to switch off streetlights when they are not needed, although some fear it may be at a detriment to the quality of service delivered.

DAD’S DIN.

Uncomfortable with my boss! I work for a company as an administrator and I have a real problem with the men at work. They come in and out of the office between jobs and are always making pervy remarks and making me feel really uncomfortable. I would go to my boss but he’s the worst of them all! It’s making me feel so uncomfortable that I’m considering quitting but I don’t have many qualifications and worry that I might not find anything else. What shall I do? Maxine You should go to your boss Maxine and state quite clearly that your offended by his remarks and those of the other men. Its 2012, not 1912 for goodness sakes! People need to learn that they cant exploit and harass others and that’s exactly

SHADY SECRET? Lately my husband keeps wanting to try new stuff in the bedroom and it’s making me really worried. We’ve been married for 15 years and normally we have sex about once a week but lately he’s been wanting to do it much more often and keeps asking me to try things that I’m not comfortable with. Then when I tell him no he gets annoyed and we have an argument. I thought our sex life was fine before and I don’t know why things have suddenly changed. And while I don’t want to do some of the stuff he asks for, I don’t want him to go elsewhere for it. Sue

ADVERTISING HOTLINE

what’s happening here isn’t it? You may or may not get the reaction you want from your boss but the alternative is to go on, day after day, just accepting this disgusting treatment. A good lawyer would give you chapter and verse on how to handle the legal side of things but lets hope that it doesn’t come to that. At the end of the day Maxine, you have to ask yourself if you really want to work with people who have no respect for you don’t you? Stand your ground Sue. Its patently not right for anybody to expect or demand you to do anything you’re not comfortable with. Quite frankly, if your husband has an issue with that, then maybe its time for you to reconsider your marriage anyway! The fact that him going elsewhere is even a possibility speaks volumes to me sweetheart. There could be any number of reasons for his sudden change in the bedroom and he’s the only one who can tell you, why not ask him outright? Sit him down one evening and explain exactly how he’s making you feel. Too many couples forget to communicate their feelings and the end result is usually a parting of the ways. Right now, you’re obviously unhappy with things and unless you stand your ground nothing will ever change will it?

I’ve just got engaged and as soon as my dad heard heard about it, he asked if I’d have his band performing at my evening do. I feel so awkward awkward I don’t don’t know what to do. Me and Mum have put up with him being in a band for years and humoured humoured him, but to be honest he’s he’s not very good. I can’t can’t bear the thought of him and his mates standing up there there in front front of all my friends singing to old songs which my mates won’t won’t even know. know. But I don’t don’t want to hurt dad’s dad’s feelings, especially as he’s he’s paying for the wedding. Kelly IF I were your dad, I think I’d be more hurt if you weren’t completely honest with me. I have to admit, it’s a tricky situation but, as ever, being up front about it is the only thing you can do. Why not try and reach a compromise with your dad? Perhaps agree to him singing just one song at the reception? Ultimately sweetheart, this is your big day and its up to everybody around you to fit in with what you want. Your dad shouldn’t be treating it a his big chance to perform in front of a captive audience should he? Sit down and have a chat with him, explain that you just don’t think your mates would appreciate his kind of music for the entire night! The longer you leave this, the worse it will get so my advice is to take a deep breath and approach your dad before things go too far.

CHESS ROCK MUNICIPAL THEATRE BY EVA TEJEDOR The Queen Tribute band came to Torrevieja’s Municipal Theatre on Friday night and truly conquered it and the audience within. And we I say full-house it was exactly that, as a some latecomers where left standing at the door for this sell out performance.

Chess are a band who play music like and sound just like Queen. Close your eyes and you can imagine Freddie Mercury strutting around in all his glory on stage. However, rather than dress up as imitators of Queen, they come on stage as themselves and then proceed to perform a fantastic musical tribute, with the occasional tongue-in-cheek costume change, just to mix it up a little. While some of the audience were obviously followers and big supporters of the band, for the majority, it was the first time they had every seen them perform. No matter, because as early as the second number, lead singer Charly Joss had the audience waving arms in the air, clapping hands and singing along with him. Had this been a different venue, with more room at the front to dance, he’d have had

all 660 up on their feet and dancing along with him for their two hour show. The band is made up of five accomplished musicians and features the wonderfully talented Charly Joss on vocals. Previously Charly was lead vocalist in numerous nationally acclaimed bands throughout Argentina and USA and started performing in Queen tribute shows in New York, back in the 1990s. Christian is the veteran of CHESS. Born into a family of musicians, he began to play percussion and drums from a very early age in his home country of Belgium. Guitar and bass is provided by the Spanisg duo of Josue alongside his partner in crime Juanma (bassist). The pair have played together over the past eight years in many different bands including the nationally acclaimed recording band ‘Miranda Warning’. Nicholas is the youngest and newest member of CHESS, after the band decided a keyboard would enhance their musical style. Nicholas, who is classically trained at the National academy Moldavia, following which he began his rock career..playing with the nationally acclaimed recording Band Millennium in Moldavia. Chess played a few excellent tracks from their new album, which is due to be released in February 2013. Through the clever use of video and audio tracking, Charly even managed to sing the duet ‘Barcelona’ with Montserrat Caballé, which brought the house down. With all of the excellent talent on stage, it makes one wonder where national TV Shows in England and Spain find some of their ‘so called’ talent, as Torrevieja has a pool of it that would knock their socks off.

COUNCIL PROMISE COSTA CHRISTMAS CRACKER The Councillor for the Coast and Beaches and Tourism, in co-ordination with the Councillor for Festivities, has organized again this year the Three Kings parade for the residents of Orihuela Costa. Pedro Mancebo, Councillor for the Coast and Tourism, announced that this year the two teams had joined forces with La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre and thanked Señora Almudena Soubrier, who is the manager of the shopping mall, for their collaboration and assistance to make this year’s procession even more enjoyable and special for the young and young at heart. Mancebo confirmed that the procession has been organized by the Town Hall for all different associations, parents associations, the schools on the coast and other groups to participate. He also confirmed that this year there will be a few changes. One of the changes is the route of the parade. This year the parade will begin at the Town Hall and will finish in the main square “Plaza Mayor” in the shopping centre. Here the Three Kings will receive the letters with the children´s wishes. The Councillor confirmed that the change of route will enable more residents and visitors to take part and especially at the end of the parade it will be easier for the little ones to deliver their letters to The Three Kings. The parade will continue through the streets of the shopping centre. Pedro Mancebo also informed us that Christmas in Orihuela Costa is

going to be very special with many activities starting now right up until the “ringing of the bells” to welcome in the New Year.

CHARITY CONCERT WITH INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN ASSEMBLY A VARIED programme of thoroughly entertaining music awaits theatre-goers next month when one of the leading choirs on the Costas appear in concert in Torrevieja. The 30 to 35-strong Orihuela Costa Male Voice Choir will be singing at a charity concert at the Virgin Del Carmen Theatre on Friday, December 7 starting at 8pm. There will be appearances by guest artistes Mary Beer and Janelle Gaskell. It is the first major concert hosted by the Torrevieja-based International Christian Assembly church and proceeds will be going to Reach Out. This charity is struggling to help the growing number of local people desperately in need, many having lost their jobs and some having lost

their homes or about to be made homeless due to the recession. The choir, under musical director Nigel Hopkins, is of mixed nationality, but the vast majority of the songs in this secular programme will be in English. He promises an evening of "thoroughly entertaining music sung for a very worthwhile cause". The Orihuela Costa Male Voice Choir has been gaining increasing popularly locally and is planning a UK tour next year. Tickets are now available from Jayne’s hairdressers Playa Flamenca, from Reach Out charity shop in Torrevieja, and from the ICA church through Pete Goodyer, tel 968 97 8139, or on the door, subject to seats still being available. This concert is likely to be very popular and people are advised to buy tickets in advance if possible.

LEADER CHURCH OF ENGLAND COMES TO ORIHUELA COSTA ADVERTISING HOTLINE

The go-ahead has been given for the start of Church of England services in Orihuela Costa in the New Year. The Church of England chaplain for the Torrevieja area, Revd. Chris Scargill, and the the Chaplaincy Council have agreed with the parish priest of Orihuela Costa, Fr. Joaquin Carlos, to start holding services at 6p.m. each Sunday evening in the new Cristo Resucitado church at La Regia which is officially designated by the Roman Catholic Church as an ecumenical centre. Up to now the nearest Anglican service has been at Los Balcones. The first service is planned for 6th January, when there will be a service of Holy Communion for the Epiphany - the Coming of the Three Kings.From then on the services each Sunday will be Evening Worship with Holy Communion on the fourth Sunday of the month. There will also be a service of Holy Communion each Thursday morning at 11a.m. "It's a bit of a leap of faith", said Fr. Chris. "People from that area have said they have been praying for services in English at the new church, but we're not really sure what sort of numbers we're talking about. We're planning to start in a small side chapel and then move into the main church as it builds up. What is especially exciting is the possibility it offers of working in partnership with our Roman Catholic friends. Fr. Joaquin has been speaking not just in terms of letting us use the building, but very much of us working together in outreach to the local community and those in need." It is hoped that the location of the church, close to the N332, will mean that the new services will appeal not simply to the many English speakers living in Orihuela Costa, but also to those living just over the border in the northern part of Murcia, where the chaplaincy as yet has no worship centre.

JAGUAR LAUNCH THEIR XFR IN LOS ANGELES BY KEITH NICOL Two significant new Jaguars have made their debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The XFR-S saloon made its global debut at the Show. The XFR-S is the fastest, most powerful and agile sports saloon Jaguar has ever built. Developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s specialist ETO division, the XFR-S features bespoke powertrain, chassis and body enhancements that enable it to push the performance boundaries. With 550PS from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine driving through an eight-speed Quickshift transmission, the XFR-S is capable of reaching 60mph in just 4.4-seconds before going on to an electronically limited top speed of 186mph. On unveiling the car Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars commented: “Sporting character is evident in all Jaguar saloons. In the XFRS that character has been amplified, the result being a truly engaging car with a combination of technical innovation, assertive design and staggering perform-

ance that will satisfy the most demanding of drivers.” The XFR-S goes on sale in the UK from May 2013 priced at £79,995. Making its North American debut at the show was the FTYPE – Jaguar’s all-new twoseater sports car. Seen for the first time with special-order Firesand paintwork and equipped with optional ‘Design’ and both exterior and interior ‘Black’ packs, this individual F-TYPE – a V6 S model – demonstrates the range of personalisation options that are available for customers.Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, commented: “For me, good automotive design should be about creating excitement, so being here in LA to witness the positive reaction to both the XFR-S and F-TYPE – two highly distinctive performance

cars – is very satisfying.” F-TYPE:Launched at this year’s Paris Auto Show, the all-aluminium F-TYPE represents a return to Jaguar’s heartland: a twoseater, convertible sports car focused on performance, agility and driver involvement. Three models are available – F-TYPE, F-TYPE S and the F-TYPE V8 S. They are powered respectively by Jaguar’s new 3.0-litre V6 supercharged petrol engine in 340PS and 380PS outputs and its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol producing 495PS. The XFR-S is the latest car developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s specialist ETO division. The division is responsible for extending the Jaguar and Land Rover brands with a series of 'special edition' models as well as a range of personalisation options allowing owners to tailor their cars.

CRAZY CAR LAWS MURCIA STYLE! The Murcia town council appear to have completely gone mad by introducing a new municipal law that makes it a fineable offense for car owners to attempt to sell their vehicles by placing a for sale sign in the car. The new municipal law means that Police now have the power to call a tow truck if a vehicle is spotted with a for sale sign in the window and the owner then has to pay the tow truck fees, the storage at the municipal lot and then the fine. The introduction of this law has been met with uproar from the public, many claiming that the council is taking away their rights. Jose, M, H, one of the first unfortunate people to fall foul of the new law stated " I can understand the council fining those people that regularly buy and sell cars and leave them parked for days or weeks, but surely as an individual I have the right to put a for sale sign in my own car, as long as it is not obstructing my view." The costs involved with the new law are substantial. Motorbikes:Towing charge: 29,33€, Half tow, (when the bike owner returns before it is towed): 14,64€, Municipal storage: 2,92€ per day Cars weighing less than 3.500 Kg. Towing charge: 76,26€, Half tow: 38,12€, Municipal storage: 15,25€ per day Vehicles over 3.500Kg. (Vans, Caravans, Trucks), Towing charge: 123,11€, Half tow: 61,57€, Municipal storage: 24,63€ per day Then the fine for trying to sell your vehicle by placing a for sale sign in the window and leaving it parked on a public street ranges from 1,500€ to 3,000€. The new Municipal law also now makes it a fineable offense if your vehicle is found to be leaking, oil, diesel or petrol, which could pose a potential danger to other motorists. Also if a car alarm is going off for more than 30 minutes, the vehicle could be towed and the owner fined. In view of this pic taken at the Orihuela Costa Town Hall last week we wonder whether the local authorities are now also adopting a similar stance.

A visit to the dentist always touches a nerve, often in a metaphoric sense, rather than literal, and often because of a fear that most of us seem to harbour, but usually without justification. However, the good news is that times have changed. Dentists are not to be feared, nor are dental surgeries, as the modern dentist thrives from within a warm and welcoming environment and with the most modern precision equipment, that as soon as you walk into a modern dentist?s office, you feel comfortable, welcome and your fears are eased. The Gerhard Nagel clinic at La Zenia is one such place. Having been established on the Costa Blanca since 1997, and one of the first practices in the country to offer high quality cosmetic dentistry, the experience and knowledge of the team behind the surgery has grown since their initial opening, keeping up to date with the most modern practices and equipment, to ensure that they have always maintained the highest standards of dental care available, with the overall aim of looking after your oral wellbeing, whether it be cosmetic or restorative. Their expertise in building smiles changes lives; quite literally, as they use their artistic approach to fully assess every individual mouth, from every conceivable angle, to ensure that any work carried out fits your own facial features. The team at Gerhard Nagel speak a host of languages, including English, Spanish and German, which has enabled them to build up a

PHARMACISTS GO BACK TO WORK In a late night vote on Thursday, twenty days after the indefinite strike was first called, and having received a substantial and promised payment from the government this week, pharmacists across Alicante decided to end their industrial action which they claim has led to 14 million euro less in sales. The decision to end the action was a majority vote of 409 in favour, 36 against with 30 abstentions.

After the late night meeting, just after 10 pm, Jaime Carbonell, President of the Alicante Apothecaries, Accociation stressed that the outcome of the assembly “has decisively influenced the payment schedule that is supported by the Central Government through the Autonomous Liquidity Fund, because we cannot trust the Generalitat (Valencian regional government)”. The President, on behalf of the pharmacists, also thanked their “patients” and apologised for the inconvenience caused to them during their stoppage. In recent days Pharmacies were increasingly opening their doors which is thought to have influenced the decision was influenced Thursday’s decision.

TORREVIEJA’S PATRONAL FIESTAS By Eva Tejador

Torrevieja’s Patronal Fiestas started on Saturday evening with the traditional Floral Processions, a donation of flowers to the Inmaculada Church from many of Torrevieja and the surrounding regions many groups and associations. The British and International groups were also well represented with presentations being made by Neighbourhood Watch, members of the ex-military services and the Torry Army, amongst others. The three hour long event attracted 1,000s of spectators along with more than a thousand participants from almost 80 different associations, some with just four or five representatives and others forty plus. The preliminaries to the Fiestas started a few days ago, with the proclamation and coronation of the Queen of Sal, and so the activities, both recreational and religious, continue on until 17 December. Marching bands, wreaths , children's games, music

and fun for the family, cooking contests, traditional Masses and novenas are just a taste of what is expected over the next two weeks. Saturday also featured the inauguration of the Bethlehem Nativity Scene which can be visited until January 7. On Monday night, many of the associations gather for dinner with entertainment by various DJs and the activities move to the Marquee Tent, which has been erected in the Fairground area. On Tuesday night it's time to watch the performances of youth music groups. On Wednesday, beginning at 10pm, the Marquee is the venue for performances by Pura Mandanga and Macaco. Thursday will be the night of the monologues of humor, leaving Friday for children, who can enjoy Children’s TV characters performing in the Municipal Theatre, starring Los Lunnis. Plenty to see and do over the next few weeks, apart from shopping, in the run up to Christmas.

‘Mike Probert talks Golf Sponsored by Costa Blanca Green Fee Services. Here on the Costa’s golf is one of the biggest leisure time activities for both tourists and resident alike and with this in mind we have secured the services of Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fee Services to provide a weekly round up of local golfing events and topics and in conjunction with us at THE LEADER will provide discounted golf prices to all of our readers and run our golf competitions. Seasonal Golf Pricing Love it or hate it but our Spanish hosts continue to apply a strategy of seasonal pricing where the base price of golf varies throughout the year and good or bad it is here with us to stay until there is some dramatic change on the market place. The good news is that with effect from 1st December 2012 most of the local golf courses apply there LOW SEASON tariffs that will stay in place until 28th February 2013 so fill your boots with these low prices while they are available. The other good news is that as most of the courses are relatively quiet over these winter months with tourists being in short supply and many residents returning back to the UK for Christmas and the New Year, the pace of play can be quicker and 5 hour rounds should not exist at these times.

SUCINA GS AT LA SERENA Tuesday 20th November 2012 This month’s game was a Texas Scramble competition on the tricky La Serena Course. The weather forecast was for a sunny and warm day & so it proved, perfect for golf. Some 33 players in 11 teams of 3 took to the course from 9.30a.m. starting from the 1st and the 10th tees. The course was in good condition following extensive work carried out on the greens. Normally Texas Scramble would be played with teams of 4 & despite the fact of teams having only 3 players some good scores were returned There were no catering facilities available but the prize presentation was held after the game on the terrace at La Serena. Refreshments were supplied by the staff in the pro shop but we would have appreciated some notice that the bar was closed rather than finding out on the day. The result of the competition was as follows:- 1st Place with a winning score of 66.3 strokes, The team of Dawn Gunning, Mike Spooner & Colin Comber, 2nd Place with a score of 66.4 Strokes. The team of Ann Dyos, Roy Kemp and Andy Harvey, 3rd Place with a score of 66.9strokes. The team of Gary Smith, ‘Rocket’ Ron McKinley and John Storey. Nearest the pins Hole 3 Dawn Gunning Hole 9 Roger Major, Hole 15 Nobody!! Hole 17 John Storey Our next meeting is at El Valle on the 18th December 2012.

But well done to Steve Woods and Nick Brooks who came in with a great score of 33 pt's Steve winning on count back. Graham Rickelton also came in with a good score of 31 pt's on his debut, in the competition .Noticed that Graham was playing in shorts, as Steve Cardwell got competition ?

“JINGLE BALLS” CHARITY DAY San Miguel Golf Society has organised a charity golf day which sounds like a real fun-day just before Christmas on Wednesday 19th December at La Finca. Going under the festive title of “Jingle Balls” the day will consist of a team golf competition in which visitors are urged to join the members in a joint effort to raise a chunk of money for a very worthwhile cause. Sponsors from the business world have already committed hundreds of euros and companies including Moneycorp, Property Shop Spain and Spanish Life Properties will have a prominent presence on the day. La Finca itself and other local businesses will also be contributing in different ways in helping to achieve the goal of an enjoyable and profitable day’s golf! Format for the competition will be teams of four players competing in a Stableford game where the best 2 scores will count on the first 6 holes, the best 3 to count on the next 6 and all 4 will be used on the final 6 holes. Presentations of the main prizes plus many more will take place during an après-golf meal at the course. All participants are asked to bring their festive spirit along with a gift or two for the raffle….books, bottles, golf bags etc., all are welcome. The charity “Us to Them” is the brain-child of the newly elected captain of the society, Steve Davis, who, along with his wife, Helen, has worked tirelessly for the last 5 years to help the thousands of innocent people affected by the devastating tsunami of 2004 in Sri Lanka. “Us to Them” has no expensive premises, company cars, administration costs or overheads of any kind……..it is simply what it says – us to them! Steve and Helen pay their own flights and all associated costs so every donated euro or pound goes directly to where it’s needed. Further info is available on the society’s website www.smgs.org or anyone interested can contact Barry on 966 731 033. Either get your own four-ball together or simply add your name to the list and Barry will sort out the teams. €50 covers your green fee, entrance fee and the meal to which friends and partners are also welcome at only €15 each.

LA SIESTA GOLF SOCIETY

EUROGOLF, LA MARQUESA

ST JAMES’S GATE AT BONALBA

PERALEJA GOLF, SUCINA 40 members and guests travelled to this course which most of whom had never heard of before. Just inland from San Javier at Succina, easily found off the RM-1. Peraleja Golf presents a variety of great challenges within its length of 5830 metres (yellows) including 5 par 5’s. The very modern clubhouse on 3 floors, with good views as far as the strip at La Manga, is a great setting from which to start a round of golf. The sun was shining and we set off in buggies from two tees and all took quite some time to acclimatise to the undulating terrain. The fairways were a little disappointing having obviously suffered a lot from the recent rains but boy! the greens were something else! – all in superb condition, fast, and difficult to decipher. This was clearly the first of several planned return visits – now that we know the course layout we’re all determined to beat it. Back at the clubhouse we were able to relax on the sunny terrace watching everyone coming in before enjoying a great meal in the bar/restaurant. Our thanks go to Alex Stottor for arranging the day and obtaining a very appreciable deal from Juanfrau, the Caddy Master. Also to Mike Hughes and Vernon Stottor for doing all the admin documentation and prizes. The results:- and here it gets a bit embarrassing! During the ‘apres ski’ celebrations the results sheet and cards went walkies and no-one can remember in which direction. We do know that there were some 20 prizes overall – but hey! who cares – we all had a great time! We can just about remember the main team prize winners who were:1st George (go ball,go ball) Chapman, Harry Pearson 42 points, 2nd Rose Cox, Bernie (‘allo) Sturt 37 points, 3rd Roger Woodward Tony (wot no rain) Merryweather 37 points. Nearest the Pins: Mike O’Regan and Jackie Hughes. We pride ourselves that La Siesta remains a social society that plays golf and has been based at Campoamor Golf Club for the last 21 years. We play a variety of games three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and enjoy many social occasions throughout the year. If you wish to know more, or would like to join us for a game, please contact our Captain, Pam, on 646 416 182.

72 players took part in today’s competition, 29 November. This week’s competition was one of our more light-hearted team games and was a Greensomes competition i.e. both players tee off and then once the pair has decided on the best ball, alternate shots are played. The conditions at La Marquesa were wild to say the least. Although the sun was shining we were battered by strong winds all the way round. Today’s winners won by a clear 5 shot margin. However second place was a more closely fought battle with 6 teams all coming in with 35 points, and the second and third positions being decided on count back. It also gives me great pleasure to report that our Match Secretary John is hoping to be back home later today following a recent operation. We all wish him a speedy recovery. The winners were as follows: First:Robin Richards / Connie Parker 40 points. Second: David Gregson / Marylin Eckersall 35 points (c/b). Third: Brian Green/ Rachel Leckey 35 points. Nearest the pins: 5th Tony Stanley, 11th Vince Tocker, 15th David Gregson, 17th Phyliss Venables Football Winners: Ian Turner, Beverley Fairhurst. There were two other winners but unfortunately half an hour after the event, neither the Captain nor the Vice Captain can remember who they were. Definitely a senior moment. TOFF’s Results Tuesday 27November 2012 Overall Winner – Alan Marshall. Gold Division: 1st Bob Buckeridge 39 points, 2nd John Fairhurst 35 points, 3rd Tony Stead 32 points. Silver: 1st Debbie Weedon 35 points, 2nd John Holland 32 points c/b, 3rd Jill Young 32 points. Bronze: 1st Alan Marshall 42 points, 2nd Jenny Cheetham 32 points, 3rd Phyliss Venables 31 points.

TUESDAY 27TH NOVEMBER When we left Torrevieja it had been raining overnight and we had some ugly clouds hanging about but the further North we got the brighter it got, and when we arrived at Bonalba golf course we were greeted by lovely sunshine, which lasted all day. With the exception of the company everything else was C==p. I think most of us should have stayed in bed ,with the exception of Mick Hithersay, who returned the best score of the day with32 points, to take first place in the Gold category followed in Second and Third place by Geoff Cogswell and Malcolm Anderson with 27 points.. Micheal Davies took Fourth place with 23 points followed by Ivie Davies with 22 points.(No relation j The Silver category was a Joke!! With Ron Chambers returning 23 points to take First place followed by Tom Richardson with 22 points in Second, followed in third place by Rocket Ron with 19 points. Fourth and Fifth was Malcolm Wood and Ken Hopkins 18 and 17 points respectivly. To try and justify the low scoring the course was wet from the overnight rain and the rough was deep, with balls being lost in ir, and the greems were very slow. We had the presentation of prizes in the club house after the game. Our next game ( Which is our last one for this year ) will be held at Vistabella on Tuesday 11th of December first tee 9.00am, The next day the 12th we will be having our Xmas Party at St James’s Gate. Please let me have your menu choise by the Saturday before hand. Iff I do not receive it by then you will be have what you get.

TORREVIEJA GOLF SOCIETY At La Serena on 26th November.

We had a good turn out of 36 players for our visit to La Serena, a course which has recently had major problems with its greens but happily is now well on the road to recovery. The deal which the course is currently offering to Societies until the end of December, to encourage them back to play, is fantastic value for money and it is a great shame that now the course is getting back to normality that it should now currently be unable to provide any bar facilities due to problems with the franchise operators. However this did not spoil our day as we took the opportunity of adjourning on conclusion of play to Café Golf in San Javier and we thank the owner Neil Robinson for accommodating us without warning despite the fact that he was hosting a group practising line dancing in the bar area. Getting back to the golf it was decided on the day to play a team Stableford “ waltz” competition and considering that many of the tee boxes had been placed near the back of the teeing areas some very good scores were recorded and the 2 leading teams were separated by a single point. The winners on the day were: 1st : Tommy Clarke, Charlie Rodgers, Roy and Tony Welburn with 82 points. 2nd : Ron Smith, Andy Johnston and Frank and Sue Robbins with 81 points. Nearest the Pin prizes were won by John Connolly, Bob Croft, Ron Smith and Ron Beales but for the second week in succession no 2’s were recorded. The football card draw was won this week by Ron Smith who luckily chose the last remaining team left on the card. Next week on Monday 3rd December we will be playing at Roda with a first tee time of 10.30 and as we will not have a full list of players for this fixture, players should check their tee times with the Secretary or refer to the notice board in the Portobello Bar in Campoverde.

SAN JAVIER GOLF SOCIETY CAPTAIN’S CHARITY TROPHY Wednesday 21st November 2012 San Javier Golf Society maintained their tradition of nominating one of their regular meetings to raise funds for a local charity with a competition for the Captain’s Charity Trophy. Captain for 2012/13, Barry Beale had chosen MABS as this year’s recipient and on Wednesday 21st November 28 players met at Peraleja Golf for the event. The competition was played as a Mystery Pairs Stableford but players were left in no doubt that the main ‘winners’ on the day were going to be MABS. Janet Bell, Fund Raising Coordinator for MABS was on hand to see players off and there again in the afternoon to welcome them back and present the Trophy. Juan-Fran and the team at Peraleja had been most generous in their help with the event and a number of other members and guests had most graciously donated prizes for the raffle and skill events during the day. The weather was kind with warm sunshine and little wind and the course has benefitted from the recent rain which had turned everything a pleasant green. The course has suffered with some of its fairways but there are real signs that things are improving and the tees and greens cannot be faulted. However that did not seem to inspire the players with nobody breaking net par and the overall scoring mostly leaving something to be desired – perhaps the occasion was greater than the play. The cards were paired up randomly at the end and congratulations went to Joe Flanagan & Ann Geary who lifted the trophy by 3 points from Bob Blair & Mark McGregor with John Collins & Roger McGeagh a point further back in third. Skills prizes were won by John Collins, Ann Geary, Neil Robinson and Ian Wade. In his speech Captain Barry Beale thanked all at Paraleja, the members of the Commitee who had put so much effort in to make the day a success, sponsors of prizes for their generosity and most importantly the members who had been so generous in their contributions to the pot. Janet Bell graciously accepted a cheque for €550 from the Captain and expressed her gratitude on behalf of the Charity.

Last Monday, the 26th, gave us some very close games even those with only dead-hole finish just like Margaret’s Siesta Sharks who stuttered for the second week running and this time to Richard’s Tavern Ospreys who had 2 pairs with 2 wins while the Sharks only had Denis and Joe with 2 wins. Still unchanged in 2nd place are Val’s Virgo Voles even though they lost to John’s Leopards from Catorce. The Voles had 2 pairs with 2 wins, matched by 2 pairs from the Leopards. Shelagh’s Ebony & Ivory Jaguars held on to 3rd spot in a nail biting finish against my Tavern Falcons with Elaine and Steve once more with 3 lucky high scoring wins, leaving Gill and myself as our best with only 2 wins. Best wishes to Shelagh and Brian for their forthcoming extended trip to Oz, Thailand and other places. Bruce’s Sportsman “B” were the other team retaining their high position in their win over Alan’s Virgo Robins who only had Pat and Jacky showing promise with 2 wins while for the Sportsman 2 pairs matched them with 2 wins each. In Catorce the Lions entertained Keith’s struggling Merlins up from Ebony & Ivory who have now gone 8 weeks since their last win but this week could only provide 2 pairs. With 3 wins to start, the Lions pair of Carol and Steve finished without a win while the Merlins pair of Barbara and Les triumphed with 3 wins. In the Windsor Tavern, Russell’s Kestrels squeezed a win against Mary’s Peacocks from Izzys Bar with 2 home pairs gaining 2 wins while for the Peacocks, Jean and Mike matched them, also with 2 wins. Dorothy’s Izzys Magpies were another team with 2 pairs on 2 wins in their close win against Sue’s Catorce Kats who had the pair of Peter and Dave on top form with 3 wins. Last but not least are Ayliff’s Shellys who had the biggest win of the week with all 3 of their pairs getting 2 wins each but for their competitors, Steve’s Sportsman “A” it was a captains performance with Sandra and their 3 wins.

180s Terry Hagenaars x 2, Graham Dunning, Amanda Skinner (R’vous), Jim Cheevers (PB´s Pirates), George Caine (Misfits), 171 Tony Beverley (Breeze Bar), Mark Farmer, Jim Macey-Lillie (Madigans), Derek Kingsbury, John Eyre (Meerkats). Highest game shot Terry Hagenaars (Rendezvous) (118). Best single Mark Farmer (Madigans) 15 darts A potential banana skin game this week for Gogarty´s against the sometimes brilliant Madigans, subject to their playing personnel. Both sides were under-strength in a game vital to Gogarty´s aspirations for league honours. However, it was the visitors who gained the first leg via Kevin Procktor on D10. The next leg gave both sides plenty of practice on doubles particularly D1 before the hosts levelled. Procktor busted 64 in the third, necessitating the reliable James Brown to come to the rescue. The pairs were not much better, Gogarty´s taking 2 of the 3 available. Ali O´Keef livened things up with a fine singles performance yet again, scoring 100,100,95 and 54 out to take his side´s 6th leg and at least one point. Brown found his match this week when he faced the explosive Mark

Taylor. The popular Gogarty´s proprietor raced away with 121,100 and 90 to set up his side´s 7th leg and both points. Taylor´s reply was emphatic 140,100 and 52 out in just two gave Brown a rare defeat. Jim Macey-Lillie had the responsibility of preventing the home defeat facing a determined Chris O´Brien and despite some decent darts from both couldn’t prevent O´Brien completing the 501 on D2 for the match and both points. Another match difficult to call was down at Villamartin´s Hub Sports Bar, where the third and fourth place sides squared up. The match favoured Simon Williams´ Hyenas who are looking good this term losing just the once. Current champions Meerkats are blowing hot and cold this season and that’s nothing to do with the weather. Some fine darts in the team game from Sean Smith 101, Lee Holtham 140 and Andy Brooker 100 followed by S20 and D10 gave the Hyenas an early lead. Richie Weaver 100 gave the away side a good lead in the first triple only for Meerkat John Eyre to hit a maximum followed by Eddie Bendelow using one dart for D16 (212 points in 4 darts). Williams himself regained the lead on D20 in the third leg. Eyre figured once again in the first pair scoring 121,100 and D10 to level at 2-2. Williams D10 and Holtham 100 and D1 made it 2-4 for the Hyenas, with the Meerkats looking decidedly down and out and facing a heavy defeat. The half time fish and chips seemed to do wonders for the hosts who placed their in-form players at the top in the singles draw. And one by one the score changed in favour of Meerkats. Eyre, Paul Durrant, Alex Nikolov and Bendelow all won using as much luck as they could muster. Nikolov fired a 63 out (S17,T6,D14) with Bendelow using all three for a 72 out (T16,S12,D6). It must be said their opponents Williams 100, Smith 100 and Holtham 129 will be rueing their doubles efforts. Graham Todd wrapped up the match against Geoff Harvey on D1 after both had thrown enough darts to complete a 2001. Still sitting proudly at the summit are the Rendezvous Bulls still unbeaten, this week brushing aside the Pint Depot All Stars. A point to ponder however, is the All Stars three legs is still far better than the one leg Meerkats mustered against the same side earlier in the season. The Bulls are in fine fettle particularly after last week´s scare against the unpredictable Breakaways, who nearly sneaked a draw after an excellent recovery at 5 apiece. Elsewhere the Hunks move up one spot courtesy of an excellent away victory at PB´s. The first 6 legs went the way of the visitors with Keith King D4 ensuring the win and both points in the 7th. Pirates captain Ray Sanderson 140 stopped the rot against Mick Sissons and then Jim Cheevers added a second playing an in form Martin Sears 132,134. Peter Ayres contributed a 140 for PBs and Keith King was nominated man of the match.

Debbie (Euronics) Mackleston´s Mixtures had the pleasure of visiting the comfortable surroundings of their previous venue Breakaways. The hosts raced to a 3-0 lead before the inimitable Lorraine Cox and Tracey Simpson D16 pulled one back for the league sponsor´s side. Another leg was added by Lyn D3 and Dan Jones, the husband and wife duo, to make it 4-2 at half time. Mixture Cheryl Sleath faced a confident Gary Thomas who could only watch in disbelief as Cheryl showboated on 48 hitting S16,D7 and D9. Mrs. Mackleston was next to the oche against the experienced Mike Douglas, who confirmed after the match he was offered various inducements to lose. Despite Ms. M´s tempting bribes he bravely made his team a priority and duly won the leg. Douglas´ attempts at re-negotiating the deal after the match fell on deaf ears. Tracey Simpson defeated Mike Snow but team mates Jay Sharp and Sarah Simpson made it 8 for Breakaways. Sonya Cooper 117 top scored for the Misfits, assisted by Peter James who claimed a new world record hitting D1 in each of his 4 matches. Not a record anyone would wish to hold but one that I imagine he will keep for a while. League tables along with the Sunworld K.O. Cup draw will be distributed this week. Some interesting ties and coincidentally the top four have avoided each other, which if the quarter final ties go to form should mean two great semi-finals. Sunworld K.O. Cup draw 13th December Breakaways v Gogarty´s Gophers Hub Hyenas v Breeze Bar Busters v Hub Meerkats Hattons Hunks v Rendezvous Bulls After careful consideration and consultation with the remaining teams in the K.O. Cup, the format has been changed slightly to accommodate a longer game ultimately giving teams with surplus players a chance for all to play. Format: Triples 701, first to 7 legs. First triple play all three legs Second triple play all three legs Third triple play until winning 7th leg achieved Substitutes First triple None. Second triple. Subs allowed (after each completed leg) but not from first triple. Third triple. Subs allowed (after each leg) any player to be used.

SAN MIGUEL BOWLS CLUB

GREENLANDS BOWLS CLUB

SOUTHERN LEAGUE 2012/2013

By Janet Thomas SABA LEAGUE Pulsars played home to Horadada Sat 24th Nov rearranged game. A very good win for San Miguel all the games were very close but we win on 5 rinks winning 12-2. Pulsars played away to Greenland’s Sycamores another good win we won on 4 rinks and got the overall shots, Carl Eagle, Stan North and Ann Eagle won again getting a hot shot on the 14 end (and no they were not playing the blind school they played a good team). Total Points for 10 Points against 4 Total shots for 110 Shots against 94. Meteors played La Marina Explorers. What a good result for San Miguel. Team played very well against the Explorers, well-done team winning 10 points to 4. Only 2 matches left before the New Year. Next match Monday 3rd December 1.30 for 2.00 pm. Comets were away to Montemar Novilleros, and all games were very closely contested to the extent, that, whilst we won only 2 games by a total of 12 shots the other 4 games were lost by so little that we won the overall by 1 shot. So the final result was 6-8. Well done to everybody for your efforts. WINTER LEAGUE played away to Monty Mar The wild and windy weather at Monty Mar made bowling a little difficult, but San Miguel soon got to grips for a good days bowling, which resulted in a 10-0 win Berleen 1-0 win Friendly Drew, Stuart Denholm 23 v 8 Harry Dobson, Chris Collier. 20 v 10 DI Ridley, Sab Marks 19 v 18 Bill Young, Rus Marks. 15 v 12 Roy Mercer, berleen Lee Sinclair 20 v 15 Janet Gardward. A good all round performance by San Miguel. This result will keep San Miguel on top of the league and the. Berleens pushing for the top. This weeks shots winner is Len 'lucky boy' Rudge.

BY STEVE HIBBERD Having had my knuckles rapped by the press over a spot of fingerrhea in recent reports, I'll try to cut the proverbial! Following a run of bad results, captain Chris Dewar was true to his word by leading the team to a resounding victory over Emerald Isles Moonrakers (11-3) in the Saba Discovery League. Here's one group of Chestnuts that certainly aren't a joke: Terry Lawton, Charles Langlois, Graham Watt 17-15. Helen Langlois, Mike Cassidy, Glyn Inwood 23-12. Janet Webb, Lynn Morris, Phil Heyes 20-17. Margaret Dewar, Tony Coombs, Chris Dewar 19-14. Nancy Inwood, Tony Sambrook, Dave Thompson 14-14. In the Enterprise league, Maples visited La Siesta to play the Apollos. Wins for Tony French, Mel Brown, Brian Pocock 16-15 & Fred Tilley, Steve Westall, Vic Mahomet 16-15, plus a draw for Brian Tomlin, Steve Hibberd, Dave O'Sullivan 20-20, gave them 5 points, which at one time looked to be very generous. San Miguel Pulsars proved worthy opponents for the Sycamores, who couldn't make home advantage count. Going down 4-10, leaves them the Enterprise league's strongest team, but fear not, for there's still a long way to go. The reliable team of Zoe & Jim Willcock plus skip Ken Parker won yet again (20-16), alongside fellow victors Jim Oliver, Steph Taylor & Brian Miller (19-10). In the Winter league, a herculean effort by the team of Mike Veale, Bobbie Sims, Tom Hill & Steve Cantley saved the day against Vistabella. Their superb 33-5 victory helped earn their team an extra 2 points, because although the other 3 rinks lost, a late revival ensured that overall shots were won by 76 to 70. On a more positive note, these 4 points keep them 2nd in the league. Jill Collins, Penny Tomkins, Steve Hibberd & Sandra Heath triumphed 18-17 in the Berleen league, earning 2 valuble points. Not a good day for all 3 of our Southern league sides I'm afraid. At home to La Marina Sharks, the Oaks went down 3-10, with only the team of Mike Veale, Ronnie Cairns & Steve Cantley winning, whilst Sheila Stead, Ian Kenyon & Derek Toozer drew. Also in div A, Hilda's Elms travelled to Montemar, and probably wished they hadn't bothered! Playing against the Matadors, only hubby Noel, Vic Mahomet & Ken Parker were victorious, as they went down 2-12. In div C, previous leaders the Cedars, visited close rivals Quesada to play their Swifts team. They too were unsuccessful, also only winning on 1 rink. The team of Margaret Dewar, plus the 'Posh and Becks' of green bowls (Zoe & Jim Wilcocks), not only gained 2 points for their team, but they totally annihilated their opposition (35-4).

Results and Tables for Friday 30th November 2012

EL RANCHO BOWLS CLUB Monday found The Pintos entertaining Horadada Condors, on a mat heavy with dew, though drying out mid match. The speed and width of line of at the start caused a little consternation for the visitors, as it can for the unwary, but after a while most adjusted to the mat, but perhaps not soon enough for some. In the end The Pintos took full advantage of the home mat and took all 6 rinks, though in no way did the score do justice to The Condors play, both played well and it was a very sociable occasion. In the afternoon The Broncos, played host to La Siesta Sputniks and again our visitors struggled a little in adjusting to the speed and width of the mat. But in the end, with the home players’ tactics taking advantage of the fast mat, they took 5 rinks and drew the other. Friday morning found The Raiders entertaining Monte Mar Torreadors on a breezy but dry morning, proving a little tricky for most. However it was a good match in excellent company, both teams taking 3 rinks with The Raiders taking the overall shots. Carol Taylor, Ron Edwards and Brian Taylor 28-11. Terry Buswell, Sheila Cooper and John Skipper 10-17. Evie Gerrard, Graham Hicks and Rob Clark 8-29. John Cleal, Mike Stone and Gary Newson 28-9. Tricia Elsam, Malc Sykes and Malc Elmore 9-18. Edward Elsam, Anne Stone and Shirley Edwards 28-8. In the afternoon The Mustangs travelled to Vistabella to play The Lanzadores, a tough opponent, in tricky conditions. Lanzadores deserved their win, taking the rinks 5-1 and the total shots. The Mustangs, however, despite the result played well. Sheila Booton, Derry Ffitch and Steve Bowl 5-41. Jane Hamill, Sue Rainbow and Drew Gerrard 24-13. Maxine Wright, Richard Needham and Stew Hamill 8-32. Ros Holmes, Merv Armstrong and Jim Rainbow 8-24. Marianne Holtham, Keith Cunningham and Irene Mangan 12-24. Ron Booton, Rod Wright and Alex Morrice 13-29. Sponsored by Caser.

QUESADA BOWLS CLUB President v Captains by Doug Beattie Sat 24th Nov saw the Presidents v the Captains fun day & the weather was kind to us & everyone had a fun day of bowling followed by nibbles & drinks in the Club The winner of the Spider was Joe Riley & the winning team was Gerry & Ann Linley & Brian Trinder with a score of 68 & the Presidents team won overall with 391 shots to 370. Monday saw the Pearls have a disappointing result against close rivals San Luis Klingons. Best result on the green saw William Holtham, Nigel Baigent and Nick Birch win handsomely 38 - 8 and they were supported by Ruth Birch, Veronica Sale and Jack Martin winning 22 - 18. Violet Campbell, Deidre Leeming and Derek Sale lost a hard fought encounter 16 - 17 and George Carnell, Maureen Kidd and Graham Phillips went down 10 - 16.

DIVISION 'C'

EMERALD ISLE BOWLS CLUB By Bill Allen On Thursday, 15 November, we had everything crossed in the hope that the weather would stay fine for the first ever British Legion Bowls Club to the Emerald Isle. A bit dodgy at first and then the sun appeared to give us a lovely afternoons bowling. With all eight rinks in use the British Legion won one rink and drew one. The shot difference was 185 to 89, giving EI 15 points to 3. Everyone enjoyed the game and the company, and we hope that this match will be a regular fixture. It was followed by a meal before departing for home; a good fun day - thank you British Legion. The Cavaliers played an away game on 16 November against Greenlands Oaks. It turned out to be a closer game that the score suggests, with EI losing by one shot on three rinks and two shots on one rink, winning on one rink ending with a shot difference of 87 for EI to 100 for Greenlands, EI 2 points to Greenlands 12. The best is yet to come! On 19 November both EI Moonrakers and the Titans had games. The Moonrakers were at home to League Leaders, Vistabella Albatrosses. A good game played in pleasant conditions (yes, the sun came out again) resulting in a shot difference of 95 to 99 in favour of our visitors, giving them a 5 points to 9 victory. Highest winning rink for EI was Denise Evans, Brian Allan and yours truly, 25 to 12 on our infamous rink six. The Titans played an away match against San Luis Klingons, unfortunately resulting in a shot difference of 86 to 105, 6 points to EI and 8 points to the home side. On 23 November the Cavaliers visited La Marina. Despite the score line there were some very close games with EI winning one rink and drawing one. Shot difference was 99 to 105, 3 points to EI - 11 to La Marina. The 23rd also saw EI Claymores play host to La Siesta Blues, not a good day at the office for the Claymores who won on only two rinks. Shot difference 107 to 110, 4 points to EI, 10 points to La Siesta. On 26 November the Moonrakers visited Greenlands to play the Chestnuts, hoping to give them a roasting (get it?) but the rain started to fall and put the fire out, allowing the home side to romp home with a shot difference of 105 to our 88, giving them 11 points to EI's 3. EI won one rink and drew one. The 'Friendly' game was our only success, winning by 24 shots to 16. Well done to them. 27th November saw our monthly game with the Hijackers played under blue skies but with a very cold wind. However we took our revenge with a 146 to 110 shot difference, 5 points to 3, and moneybags Ron Ede taking home the cash - it's all right for some!

COUNTRY BOWLS REPORT Just twelve months after our club was struck by lightning the forces of Mother nature has struck again, this time the roaring wind left devastation in it's path mainly to our canopy but, the roar of the San Luis Lions, unlike the wind left little impression when they came down on Friday to play the Ramblers in their Southern league division A fixture. We had two run away wins from the teams of Pat Patton, Geoff Paylor & Brian Patton winning 35-9 and Lin Watkins, Dave Chaplin & Dave Rogers winning 28-9 excellent results.

NO HOME COMFORTS FOR LA NUCIA CF LA NUCIA ...................0 FC TORREVIEJA...............0 The most surprising aspect of the visit to second placed La Nucia revolved more around team selection than anything else, with in form keeper, Manolo, and leading scorer Koemann both relegated to the bench. But the end result, a well earned 0-0 draw against the promotion favourites was more than justification with manager Casimiro Torres obviously getting his tactics right. Played in the Deportivo Canillo Cano in front of a crowd of about 400, and on one of the very best playing surfaces Ive seen at this level of football, we went into the game expecting to see some decent football. Passing on this surface would not be a problem, or so we thought, but after a very scrappy opening 45 we had rather changed our tune. There were a couple of opportunities that had the crowd on it’s feet but they were much too few and far between with only one chance of note falling to a Torry player, a rasping 30 yard from Luis Carlos that was turned around the post for a corner on 7 mins. But apart from that one brief spell of action their was hardly anything else to warm the cockles on a very cold afternoon. A very scrappy half with little to test either keeper. The second period was just the opposite though. End to end football with both sides putting keeping the ball on the ground and creating a number of good opportunities. Torry keeper Tur, who has spent the season warming the bench, was the first to be called into action when he

reacted quickly, coming out to block a close range shot with his legs. That was on 49 minutes and thankfully his biggest test of the afternoon which he came through with flying colours. After that FC Torrevieja took the game to their hosts and any questions we may have been asking about their potential to get out of this division were properly answered. Indeed most neutrals would have thought that Torry were the team in second place, such was the grip that they had on the game. But although they had long periods of control, and played the ball around with relative, they created few real opportunities to score. Luis Carlos could have done better when he rounded the La Nucia keeper on 70 minutes only to shoot wide will all the hard work done and then 8 minutes later it was Javi Rossa who shaved the outside of the post with a powerful shot from outside the box. Abel hit one just over late in the game and subsitute Koemann, who was introduced midway though the second halh, shot wide after he had pulled the keeper out of position. But the last word was left to Torry stand in keeper Tur who was on hand to punch a goalbound effort from under the bar in the 2nd minute of added time. Torry will be pleased with their afternoon’s work, a point that keeps them well in the hunt, and now look forward to a home game this coming Thursday evening at the Vicente Garcia Stadium. The match kicks off at 5pm against CF Borriol who currently sit just 2 places off the bottom. Come on Torry!

NOVEMBER AMERICAN TENNIS TOURNAMENT AT CAMPOAMOR GOLF CLUB

The Tournament was held in perfect weather conditions, after all the recent rain, and was so well supported that the entries were closed 3 days beforehand. Coffee tea and cakes were available thanks to tournament participants, Christine Reed and Nan Murray, and any profits were donated to the Dolores dog’s home. After 7 rounds of play, the top two scoring women and men competed in a 1 set, mixed doubles final. Tournament Results Women Av Score Men Av Score Sue Jones 5.8 Sean Concannon 5.5 Ros Goodward 3.8 Sture Jonasson 4.75 Judith Allen-Claassen 3.2 David George 4.75 Alison Vos 3.2 Sue’s score of 5.8 out of a possible 6, was the highest achieved in the 8 year history of American tournaments

at Campoamor. Mens second place was decided when David George, although finishing 2nd equal, decided to withdraw, and save his sore elbow. Otherwise 2nd would have been decided by the toss of a coin. The final saw Sue paired with Sture against Ros and Sean. Despite an early 3-0 lead, Sue and Sture were pegged back, but eventually won 6-3. Congratulations to the finalists and to Sture, our first Swedish winner. Most of the players enjoyed a drink on the Campoamor hotel terrace afterwards. Tournament organiser, Steve Durie, would like to thank all of the players who took part in a fun day of tennis. Campoamor is also the venue for a once a month tournament for league standard players on the Costa Blanca. Anybody who is interested in the tennis activities at Campoamor should phone Steve on 635 061 439 or email sdurie@hotmail.co.uk

CF MIL PALMERAS WEEKLY ROUNDUP Benjamines CF Mil Palmeras Toros ......7 Benejuzar .................................................1 Sponsored By Sunshine FM 102.8 Mil Palmeras took a 5 mins to settle in to this match but once settle what a show they put on .The strength , composure and teamwork form the Toros allowed them to pick their passes keeping Benjuzar pinned in their own half for most of the first half .Having to wait till the 12th min to final find the back of the net Mil Palmeras went on to secure a solid 3-0 lead by half time including a goal crafted from 5 players linking together . Second half was all about control and possesion for Mil Palmeras with some sublime passing beating Benejuzar's defense leaving the Toros to tap in 4 quaility but simple goals. Benjuzar didn't give up and scored their only goal .With players working for each other ,Mil Palmeras have a great work ethic backing up their talent. A well deserved win and a delightful match to watch. Well Done. Man of the Match David Stamm for none stop running and amazing work on the right . Hondon de la Frailes .................................5 Pre BenjaminCF Mil Palmeras Toros .......2 Sponsored By Fuego La Fuente An outstanding performance saw Mil Palmeras go toe to toe with a large, mainly experianced Hondon side and give them a good run for their money .Hondon took the lead with a well worked goal and the got another from a lucky deflection .Mil Palmeras didn't give up and managed to pin back Hondon time and again but couldn't find the back of the net . Second half and 2 nil down Mil Palmeras fought like seasoned players pushing Hondon back picking up several chances and corners until finally Kevin Ruiz sloted a corner home . Hondon made the most of their chances getting 3 more goals with Mil Palmeras scoring from another corner to finish 5 -2 to Hondon . The improvement in this young squad in such a short space of time is amazing and bodes well for the rest of the season . Man of the Match Thomas Ellis. Well Done to all Players . La Aparecida ..................................4 Alevines CF Mil Palmeras .............1 Sponsors Talleres J Martinez Ford Garage A good performance on the whole from the Toros after going 1-0 up early a couple if quality goals from La Aparecidas tricky number 10 knocked the stuffing out of us after we had yet again bossed the first 15 minutes. Half time 3-1 Into the second half and this week no major reshuffle was needed as we had been in the game and working extremely hard first half and were unlucky to go in at 3-1 so much the same we pressurised them and most if the play was in their half. But in a breakaway they poked in a 4th goal which left us a mountain to climb. But in true bulldog fashion we pushed on and in a ten minute period midway through the 2nd half we could have had 3 goals only to be spurned by good saves and a blatant penalty being ruled outside of the box. The team can take confidence in today's performance as they showed a lot more strength and fight than in previous outings. Man of the match Agustin Ramirez strong in goal and adapted well when came outfield second half.

Benferri .......................................................4 Benjamines CF Mil Palmeras Toros ........5 Sponsored By Sunshine FM 102.8 In the second game in the space of 2 days CF Mil Palmeras didn't start on the W of the whistle getting caught twice in the first 5 mins from powerful shot from outside the area.

Mil Palmeras fought hard to get back in the game and finally found their passing game . First Bailey Tomlinson found Luke Naylor who played a one two with Ben Naylor and then drove towards the area to score .Bailey and Luca Webb cut down Benferri's attacks time and again until Paolo Webb won the ball in defence and then with five passes and great link up play Ben slotted the ball home to make it two all .Benferri wouldn't back down scoring just on halftime . Second half and a slight change of formation saw Mil Palmeras put more pressure on Benferri .Luke again charged the defence to score .With Luca breaking from midfield Luke found David Stamm out wide in space who hit the back of the net with a sweet shot .Again Benferri fought back but Tiandra and Paolo held strong in defence .Benferri manage to break against the run of play to draw back at 4-4 .The Toros never gave up and again showed their team spirit ,Kevin Ruiz battled hard against a defender twice his size and the Mil Palmeras pressure left David to get his second goal in the dying mins of the match.
