It’s Finals Weekend!

So by now, we would be sitting down to whatever the ‘kitchen staff ‘ had prepared for lunch,

Barry, Teresa & Tricia may have already played Kevin K, Richard D & Richard H .. or not.!

Club Competitions 2019-20 – Draw Template

You should be able to click on the link to open the draw so you can see who had played who to get as far as the semis or finals of each competition.

Here is Ange’s Competitions Secretary’s Report 

278 entrants took part across 14 competitions. A new open triples competition was created to replace the men’s open triples. The draw took place on Sunday 11th November with the names being drawn by Shirley Callaghan from Bristol Outdoor Bowls Club.  The entry fee was increased from £2.50 to £3.00 to ensure costs were covered raising an income of £762. This of course will be used for finals weekend and trophies for both finalists.

The competition overall ran smoothly with just one – the mixed drawn pairs not being completed as a result of too few lady entrants. As indicated in my 2018/19 report we decided to run the triples competitions over the weekend. In both cases this was a fun, well supported competition with the drawn triples being initially organised to run on Burns day/night. As a result of the success of the men’s team in the Southern Counties competition (defeating HERGA!!!) we decided to reschedule this for the 15 February but retain a Burns night theme. Our Scottish members took care of the entertainment by educating us on the various formalities that make up a Burns celebration. In all 9 clans were represented but the two highlight’s have to be that a Wallace and Stewart did not ‘do battle’ and Dave Aitchison ‘Address to the Haggis’ followed by a passionate stabbing by his dirk!!!!. Well done to you all!!!, I have been asked if we can run it next year but maybe a highland fling could be added??

I hope that people have enjoyed their games so far – many were extremely close leading to a highly competitive season up until the lockdown. My aim was to provide competition for as many people as possible within the club which and hopefully this has had an influence on our competitive standard in both internal and external competitions! New faces from both the men’s and women’s teams have competed and won, reflecting a healthy club atmosphere. Thanks to everyone who ‘chipped in’ on the mixed triples days and to all of you for keeping on track. In truth no one was on the naughty step!!! We will work on dates for the remaining games and set a finals weekend at the start of next season. We will play these games but clearly, we are in the midst of a strange world!

Stay healthy and safe, look forward to seeing you all in happier times!!!

      Thanks, Ann. We’ve had a good season even though it was cut short and we’ve had a lot of fun, all of us. That’s what we want too, not to mention the competitive edge to it.
      It’s great o have club members like you who quietly get on and do things behind the scenes. Gestures like this from members make the club what it is. You’ll get a double dose of competition certificates with the 2019-20 finals in the autumn and the 2020-21 finals next year!
      Ihave to be honest, I haven’t missed the panic of match meals. Next year, Ange and I are determined to bowl instead! Need to find a caterer of course.
      I’ve emailed the lady about the headbands you’ve made to find out when/where she would like them. Thank you.
