The Club held it’s annual President’s Day today. A good number of Members enjoyed a Round Robin bowling competition and at the same time managed to raise £400 for charity from a raffle and the sale of food. The cash was donated to the Whitchurch First Responders.
There are a few more photos in the photo gallery but here are the winners Margaret Cooper and Colin Meikle after receiving their prizes from our President David Fisher.
As the season draws to it’s close we would like to congratulate our C team who have been playing in Division 3 in the Barlows Senior League. After a nail biting wait for the final results to be posted, our team finished second in their division and should be promoted to Division 2 next season.
Well done everyone!
Congratulations also to Preston Brockhurst B, who topped the leader board and to Malpas Farmers who finished 3rd and gave us a run for our money.
This year’s Lunch and Bowls had to be postponed 24 hours due to the weather forecast for Sunday. This proved to be a good decision since it rained most of the day on Sunday but stayed dry for us on Monday.
Everyone who attended had a good time, with 52 people participating in the round-robin double bowls competition and settling down to a fantastic lunch provided by Members.
The bowling was eventually won by an out-of-club team comprising Marion Pritchard (Malpas BC & I) and David Taylor (Wem BC).
Congratulations to them and well done to the runners up of Anne Wilson (Chester Rd BC) and George Hall (Malpas BC &I).
Thanks to everybody involved in the organising of the day and especially to Ann Mitchell who organised the lunch and John Mitchell in charge of the bowling competition.
Photos of the day can be seen in the photo gallery.
Looking forward to our next social event which will be President’s Day.
The greens are both parched at the moment like everywhere else and running super fast. A lot of jacks and woods are running off and games are taking an age to play with players having to wait for woods to trundle to a halt. I’ve never seen jacks and woods turn so much on this green. Still, I think it’s better than the flooding in April.
