It proved to be a very successful day both in bowling and fund raising terms.
After battling it out in the 1.5 hour sessions, Jean & Norman took on scratch pair Barry & Audrey (whose partners had had to drop out at the last minute) in the Final.
Barry & Audrey took the title by 3 shots with some amazing bowls from all four players. I’m just disappointed we didn’t have a tie-break!
Well done to everyone who played, paid fines (for wrong coloured trousers and/or wrong biases!) ate lunch and tea and bought raffle tickets. We raised just over £400 for Shooting Star Chase. A terrific effort.
Thanks to Ann M who did her wonderful raffling to raise £216 and for organising fish ‘n chips for those who couldn’t face going home to cook a meal after a long day of bowling – 6 hours for Jean & Norman!
The format worked well and we intend to do the same next year – one day for Mixed Pairs and a separate day for Men’s Pairs.
