We Beat Bottesford!
A great win against Bottesford. 64-57 thanks in no small part to Mick, Jack and John Hallows. I was really proud of Liam who lead with great skill and only ended up going down when their skip took four of our shots out with the last bowl of the match. The ladies provided another super MBC buffet.
" It's the best green I've bowled on all year " is praise indeed from a Bottesford player.

Don and Joan Wright's Donation to the Club
We will no longer have an excuse for being late onto the green or into the Pavilion for tea, now that we have a wonderful outdoor clock, thanks to the generosity of Don and Joan. Thanks to Mel for putting up.
The Annual General Meeting 2019
A great turnout of members witnessed the installation of this years president Peter Armitage and vice president David Drew. Trevor Witts, the company accountant, gave a very encouraging financial report showing the club to be in a healthy financial state. The key message from Peter was, that to remain a healthy and successful club the support of the members is essential. The teams need to be picked from the maximum number of available members whilst the social activities will flounder without the support of members and friends.
I have set up a "closed" web page 'mansfieldbowlingclub' on which members can post information and photographs. Mansfield bowling club will get you in if you request admission. I hope that it proves useful for the members. If you are not registered please let me have your email address.
