Peter, grinning widely, shakes the hand of President Glenmore having taken a 10 shot lead in the President v Vice President competition. It is hoped that members will turn out in September when the destination of the trophy will be decided.

The support of members was again very disappointing.
Eleanor and Hazel produced a superb meal.


ALL CLUB COMPETITIONS ARE TO BE PLAYED IN UNIFORM



President's Charity

The first Presidents Charity competition was won by Brasso who defeated Vice President Peter in the final.

Neil organised an interesting format for the well supported event. Fred won the whiskey spider competition and Mel guessed the treasure square.

The day raised over £350 for the Bradley Lowery childrens cancer charity.

Thanks to Hazel, Eleanor and Mike who were down at 9.00am setting up the bric-a brac, tombola and cake stalls and all those who provided cakes and items for sale. Linda Jenny and Christine were a great support, helping to ensure that the day was a success.


 Veterans

































Congratulations to Trevor, who is the 2018 Veterans Champion. He defeated Mel in this year's final.
Neil organised a superb event, only to have two members not turn up. This really isn't good enough when he put so many hours into sorting out the draw.
With a great deal of last minute changes and a member willing not to play the afternoon ran smoothly.
Thanks to Margaret Vardy, Winifred, Woody and Dawn who stepped in and helped things to run smoothly.

MBC v QEs

On a lovely a lovely summer afternoon the pupils and staff turned out in vast numbers to contest the David Taylor trophy. The margin of victory is narrowing with MBC going down on one rink and just squeezing through on a second. Head of PE Mark Sisson supported by the Academy Principal presented the trophy to President Glenmore.














Thanks to Hazel, Barry and Paul who stepped in to help to provide 25 delightful primary school children with a memorable afternoon on our 
green.

Sorry that the roll up group had to wait 10 minutes for their rink to become available.














You will need to get in plenty of practice on the green as you will be playing in In the"Final"of the Malkinson Trophy!

I have set up a "closed" web page 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.
