Our President, John Clymo, presided over the start of the new outdoor season and opened the green with the bowling of the first wood (accurately), although an injury prevented him taking part in the competition.
Ten teams of four contested five separate, 14-end matches, allowing forty bowlers to get some early outdoor experience on a green in remarkable condition for the time of year. The winning team (with 24 shots) was skippered by Brian Jeffries.
The sausage & mash meal (plus desserts) was much appreciated and was followed by the President’s address and summaries, by Brian Jeffries and Frank Derbyshire, of short-mat and carpet bowls with prize presentations.
