PRO-AM SEPT 4TH 

<<

A big thank you to all who played in and supported the Charity Pro-Am day Sunday 4th September! Played in support of local Scout Group 2nd Penn (actually a Wombourne group based in Battlefield Lane near the Red Lion) to help purchase new camping equipment, we had a great turn-out and some fantastic bowling from Pros and Amateurs alike.

Congratulations to the ProAm champions John Stokes and Marion Elkington! They played brilliantly all day to claim the trophy but had a real battle in the Final against Connah Warr and Karen Bett. After forging ahead to gain a big lead, John and Marion were pegged back by Connah and Karen to a tight finish, but held their nerve to take the win. Well bowled to both final pairs - a great game.

 

 

In the Consolation Cup (played by those who lose their first round matches), there was more fierce competition, with Glyn Phillips and Eileen Jones finally overcoming Alan Hinton and Charlotte Phillips to take the silverware. Again, well done to both pairs and congratulations to Glyn and Eileen!

Thanks to all our "Ams" for taking part - we hope you all had a good day and enjoyed your day on the greens!

And finally: the grand total raised passed the £700 mark by close last night and we believe there is still a little more to come in. A terrific effort from everyone involved in running the day and all those who donated, contributed, raffled, marked, measured, competed, watched and supported - thank you and well done to one and all!

We look forward to welcoming you all back for ProAm 2017!

 

Judy Griffiths Memorial Ladies singles in aid of Breast Cancer 3rd June 2016

Another successful night at the Club as we raised money for the fight against Breast Cancer whilst the ladies competed for the Judy Griffiths trophy. Sixteen took part in a fun filled evening of fund raising and fantastic bowling, with our eventual finalists being defending champion Vicky Cooper (winner in 2014 and 2015) and challenger Joan Walker; both of whom are seen here at the start of the final with Captain Chris Hayward. Vicky started in top form and streaked (not literally!) into an early lead; but fortified by a quick swig of her drink (gin?), Joan fought back to inflict Vicky's first defeat since 2013 and claim the trophy! Well bowled both and many congratulations Joan!

As ever though, we all wanted the real winner to be the Breast Cancer charity in Judy's memory; and thanks to your hard work and generosity we made that happen! A fantastic effort raised in excess of £400 on the night and once again Lloyds Banking Group are matching this to take us over the £800 mark (thanks Michelle!). Well done and THANK YOU to all who organised, donated, contributed, bowled, measured, sold raffle tickets and football cards and otherwise supported the evening! We're proud of you all - well bowled everyone!!

John Bett MemorIAL mENS sINGLES eVENT FOR pROSTATE cANCER 8TH jULY 2016

<

Another wonderful night at the Club on 8th July; the John Bett Trophy competition, raising money for Prostate Cancer UK is truly one of the highlights of our calendar. The bowls matches were played in just the style John would have approved of: they were sporting, friendly, there was a lot of humour and banter, and most of the players were three sheets to the wind!!

Congratulations to the incomparable Andy Warr, who took his third consecutive trophy win, with victory over the very worthy runner up, Roy Thomas. Roy played outstanding bowls all night, but found that Andy is, well, he's just Andy Warr! Well played to both and indeed to all 18 gents who made the evening such a success. Our photos show the finalists with Ian and Michelle Bett, who kept everyone topped up with a drop of John's favourite single malt all night!

And it wasn't just the bowling that was great; huge thanks to everyone for digging deep to raise a whopping £409.35 on the raffle and through donations; plus a further £400 through the Club Wembley ticket auction, making £809.35 in total - to which Lloyds Banking Group will match fund a further £500 taking the total to a magnificent £1,309.35 for Prostate Cancer UK!! Great stuff! Special thanks to Chris Hayward, Jacky Phillips, Alison Morgan, Ian and Michelle, Quantex Consulting (sponsors of the Wembley tickets) and all who donated raffle prizes for such a great cause.

Well bowled all; John would be well chuffed. "One for the road, our kid; one for the road..."
