This years Brian Peaurt Trophy took place in almost perfect weather – except for the final. We all enjoyed the bowling, almost as much as we enjoyed the barbecue. Thanks to everyone who turned up and took part, it was very satisfying to see all 8 rinks used to their maximum.

The runners-up were Angela Beall & Ken Rayner.
Can we just add a big thank you to all of those ladies and gentlemen who give their time so selflessly, always beavering away in the background, making these wonderful days the success that they are. Thank you all very much.
