The West Berks 500 Tournament was held at the club on Saturday, 14th October. Forty members drawn into twenty teams enjoyed this first ever all day 3-wood pairs competition.
Each team played four fast 5 end games, with 1 end play offs for tied games, throughout the day culminating in semi-Finals and a Grand Final. The tournament was the idea of club member Jim Hackett who kindly donated £500 in prize money.
After a gruelling but enjoyable day of competitive bowls, the well deserved victors were Judy Wright and Barry Williams who each received £100. In second place Sam Whiting and Richard Kozlowski (£75 each), third place Dot Williams and Terry O’Neill (£50 each)and fourth place Sue Clark and Gordon Ballantyne (£25 each).
Organiser, Derek Parsonson, commented ‘A great day was had by all and the generous prize fund donated by Jim Hackett was very much appreciated’. A letter of thanks is being sent to Jim on behalf of the Club and its members.
