PRESIDENT’S DAY CHALLENGE MATCH – Well today was the the culmination of a wonderful bowling season, with what for some of us was the highlight of this years bowling season – The President’s Day Challenge Match. It was wonderful to see so many happy smiling faces on the green this afternoon. Sadly for the ladies, the gentlemen were victorious this year, but there were many comments from the ladies that we should do this again next year. Won’t mention who were awarded with the wooden spoons to avoid any embarrassment, but glad they enjoyed the match. That after all, is why we all do it. A big thank you to Brian & Judy Christison for all their efforts in organising such a marvellous event. Hope to see you all at the Presentation Evening.
PRESENTATION EVENING – This year’s annual Presentation Evening will take place on Tuesday 24th October. Tickets will be available from Margaret Littlefair at the President’s Day Challenge Match. After that, please purchase them from Brian or Marian Wheatman.
We had a total of 197 entries, which means that the lucky winner will pick up £118.20 next May. The runner-up will collect £59.10, with £19.70 going to whoever finishes in third place.
We will send out Newsletter periodically, links to which will appear below.
