and Margaret Turtington and Ian Price

For the first in a few weeks, the weather was kind and 16 members turned up

 to make good competitive games

 


On Sat 10th August we had

The Sue Holt Trophy 

organised by Kerry Holt

Kerry braves the weather

   

Like everybody else did

 

Well most ....

It started with a heavy drizzle, became torential, and settled down to a steady downpour which flooded the green and prevented further bowling.

Thanks to Kerry for organising and providing all the refreshments,

to Catherine, Maureen and Susan for looking after it all,

and the 22 optimists who came to play.

Apart from watching the rain, the main entertainment was Peter Oakes playing Paul Booth corner to corner and nearly reaching despite the flood.

Volunteers are still needed for general treatment,

path cleaning, edging, etc.

Just Remember!

Many complements are paid by very experienced bowlers

to the superb condition of the Bowling Green

The excellent condition of the Green doesn't

happen by accident. 

A lot of hard work and many thanks go out to

our Green Manager Stewart Beswick

throughout the Season
