Saturday’s weather was brilliant as was the bowling for the Club’s Two Wood Triple Competition (Nell Rumble Trophy) Group A was won by Barry, Christine and Martin Lee.
Group B was the more hotly contested group with several team vying for top spot. It finally came down to the last game where the Team of Geoff Chadd, Bob and Judy Savory beat Harrison, Paul Sainsbury and Steve Wood.
In the final the Group 2 winners was no match for the on-form Team Lee who won with an end in hand.
A brilliant day, well organised as ever.
A few photos from the Presidents’ Afternoon Tea. Members from our neighbouring clubs, Aldershot Underwood and Farnborough Gate, were invited to allow the committee to say thank you for given us green time before our new green opened.
The afternoon started with a Target Wedge Competition – organised by Sheila and Harrison – which was fiercely contested, although more scored zero than any points.
President Michael and Vice President Joan served tea and delicate sandwiches, made and provide by President Michael, and a large array of Cakes and scones, provide by Vice President Joan.
To celebrate Christine Lee’s birthday a cup cake with candle was produced and a tuneful rendition of Happy Birthday.
The afternoon was rounded off with one of Michael’s quizzes (thankfully a much easier one this time)
The club was formed on the 17th August 1947.

On Saturday Farnborough Bowling Club hosted the North Hampshire Women Bowling Association’s Past Presidents’ Day. Sheila Andrews, our Club Captain, is the Immediate Past President and organised a splendid lunch: having enticed / bribed some Farnborough Bowlers and her granddaughter to help.

Unfortunately the weather turned very wet after lunch and no bowling was possible.
Margaret Hankin, as always, had a plan B and a draw for the spider and a challenging quiz entertained everyone to teatime.
The Spider made £47 for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.
Of course there had to be a raffle and there were plenty of prizes to be won.
