B&DWBA FRIENDLY MATCHES 2019
and ONWARDS to 2020
How does one measure success? Is it by the number of games won or by the number of association members who have enjoyed playing in our matches during the season?
We didn't actually win any of our six games but the margin of loss was never particularly great and we did have some fantastic "Top Rinks".
We welcomed 23 new players, gave out 9 Association Badges to those who had played in at least three matches over a three year period and recognised the long service of a further 8 players who are now proudly sporting their "Loyalty and Friendship Badges" whilst also encouraging other Ladies from their clubs to participate.
More than any of this we celebrate friendships renewed and new friendships forged through the medium of both the wonderfully challenging sport of lawn green bowls and "our" association - the B&DWBA.
We look forward to next season where I am happy to report that we have already confirmed five of our six matches. Look out for the dates, sign up and become part of these wonderful occasions. We really look eagerly forward to welcoming YOU and as your Match Secretary I am still desperate to include at least one player from each affiliated club!
Please let 2020 be the year that this "New Year Resolution" is finally achieved.
Lindsey Thyer .............. .President
Trish Kilminster............Vice President
Carrie Kaye ......... Immediate Past
Cathy Hunter ............. Match Secretary
