The last of the years celebrations saw the much anticiapted Men v Ladies match and with both captains looking to motivate their teams to success the usual tranquility of the bowls green was just a distant memory. Tom Holland opened the proceedings with an inspiring speech on our wondeful club and its past and expectations for the future. This was followed by a "Spider" competition which was won by Norman Bonham, who was seen leaving the premises at the end of the day with a bottle of whisky under his arm. The match then started with both teams looking to get off to an early lead for the rest of the team to follow. A great afternoons bowls was had by all and the results are as follows:
Rink 1 - Dan Livett, Keith Harper, Steve McNeill & Eddie Chanell won 29-4 against Pam Spokes, Kate Griffiths & Nina Lane
Rink 2 - Matthew Crick, Ian Ramsay, Reg Paul & Lionel Cheshire won 27-5 against Sue Smith, Ellen Livett, Sheila Holland & Carol Crick
Rink 3 - Don Russell, John Simmons, Eddie Justice & John Smith won 20-19 against Maureen Warwick, Hazel Harper, Dot Russell & Jan Moores
