Island Open Day Bowls – Update

What a great day on Saturday (12th August) Willows for the first time had three teams representing the club, the scattering of green tops amongst the event certainly stood out.

The results for our teams were as follows:

Bob P,  Doreen P,  Chris B,  Doreen T,    2nd in their group – missed out by just 1 point from going through.

Alan H, Pat H, Carol T, Bob T    3rd in their group

Dave C,  Chris C,  John B,  Neil P    4th in their group

As usual Island hosted the event with great organisation, tasty refreshments, and great facilities all which makes the day even better.   Lets see if we can increase the number of Willows entrants next year!

Friendly v Warren Heath

Please see the teams for the friendly HOME match on Thursday 17th August

(Please contact Dave C  as soon as possible if you are unable to play)
