President's Day 2024

Some photos, from Saturday’s President’s day. A lot of fun playing BOWLF, see notes from Sheila.
A big thanks to Graeme, Terry and Martin for organising such a great day of fun, bowls and food.

Eat your heart out Bowls England, Farnborough Bowling Club have invented a new activity to attract budding bowlers to the sport, BOWLF, a cross between bowling and golf, essentially an obstacle course, using any old equipment, planks of wood (lots of clubs have planks lurking about in their sheds), bruise mats, found a use for them at last, old wine boxes that have been using up valuable space in the bar, you name it, our TAG team (aka Terry and Graeme) and Reece the Drill can turn anything lurking in sheds/clubhouses into an obstacle course.  Even redundant bar stools, broken chairs, old buckets, old underwear, road/police cones, talk about recycling!

Costar Trophy 2nd June 2024

This year’s Drawn Triples Costar Trophy was held between 8 teams playing in two leagues. The final had a close finish and was won 7-4 by Steve Alford, Barbara Ford and Martin Lee. The worthy runners-up were Phil O’Brien, Tim Wing and Simon Webb.

A great day was had by all; perfect weather, great atmosphere, super bowling and a first class green.

A special mention of thanks for Mike Kernahan who came early and set up all the rinks and then volunteered to drop out when the final numbers were awkward. Thank you also to everyone else who supported the competition and helped make it another success for the club.

The Winners – Steve, Barbara & Martin

Memorial Shield 5th May 2024

Memorial Shield

Yesterday was our Memorial Shield. This was the 10th year the competition has been run. It was set up by David and Laura Wansell to remember past bowlers and raise money for charity. Sadly David passed away shortly after setting this up   at far too young an age.

Over the 10 years we have raised over £2,000 for various charities. This year it was Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care.

As for the bowling; there were two sections, with Simon, Mike and Tony winning one and Wendy, David and Michael winning the other. The weather just about stayed dry for the final which was won by Wendy, David and Michael who have decided that the charity for next year’s game will be Phyllis Tuckwell again.

Winners Michael, Wendy and David
