CLUB COMPETITIONS

         Our club competitions are almost complete, we only have the open singles to conclude at some point in the last week of September due to players being away on holiday, the date for this game will be published as soon as it has been agreed, hopefully some 'fans' will come along to support the players 

The Ladies singles was completed early in September with Elaine Whiteman winning by 21 shots to 12 against Wendy Walker

On Saturday 11th September the mixed pairs saw Mike Pickering and Linda Butt run out winners by 21 shots to 13 against Barry Moore and Peter Jones

Also on 11th September the Men's singles concluded, there was one semi final to player in the morning which was followed after a lunch break by the final which saw Tony Igle defeat Mike Pickering by 21 shots to 2.

Some new photos will be published when all the comps have concluded.

Well done to everyone who participated in our club comps this year, hopefully we can run a fuller program of competitions next year.

PAT NAUGHTON CUP & MAURICE OAKLEY CUP

On Sunday 25th July twenty four members gathered at the club to participate in the Pat Naughton Cup, which would usually be played each year but for obvious reasons this was an occasion to savour. In this event players are selected at random into triples who then play a series games of six ends each against four of the other teams, when the bowling has finished a tally of points for wins and draws along with shot difference is calculated to decide the overall winning triple.

It was really great to see three new bowlers take part for their first sample of 'match bowls' rather than practice or coaching sessions, and to make it even better one new player finished with a third place prize and another was part of the overall winning team. Well done to Alison and Aaron.

The winners were Alison, Chris and Terry; you can see them in the centre of the photo above along with the runners up, Frank, John and Elaine plus third placed Aaron, Linda and Martin.

Around a month later a similar internal competition, the Maurice Oakley Cup, took place in changeable weather. On this occasion the winners were Frank, Christine and Richard A, runners up were Sue, John and Tony, third place went to Richard C, Wendy and Barry.

A huge thanks goes out to the people who organised both afternoons and others who helped make both afternoons a great success.
