Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
The President’s charity for 2017 is Myton Hospice at Home and she was delighted to hand over nearly £500 to the charity following the Tour to Bournemouth. This included the £100 raised by Mary Wheildon and Linda Linney for their zip wire challenge.
The Tour to Bournemouth was, as always a great success, and the weather helped by keeping sunny and dry for most of the time. The Gala evening theme was Ascot and everyone taking part was fantastic and they all deserved a prize. There were some very elegant ladies and some very good looking horses, grooms and jockeys and there was a very colourful bookie known to the Warwickshire County as Jean Williams.
The bowling fraternity in Dorset and Hampshire looked after us admirably and although we didn't win the county game against Hampshire, the sun came out and the afternoon was a roaring success.
A full report on the Tour and more photographs can be found in News.
Continue to enjoy your bowling everyone and I look forward to being with you as we travel around the Country.
Wiltshire Wilt Under Warwickshire PressureAfter a dismal wet day on the Wednesday it was good to see the sun come out as Warwickshire faced Wiltshire in their annual friendly match at Wellesbourne. Warwickshire won on all six rinks with a final result of 126-79.
Maureen Tims (Whitnash) with Dawn Horne (RLS), Margaret Grosvenor (Lillington) and Chris Cooke (Southam) were fairly evenly matched with their opposition for the first half of the game but then 3 shots on the 10th end followed by 5 on the 13th made the difference and they went on to win 19-12.
Sue Hornsby with Chris Ward and Di Thurlbeck (all Lillington) and Lynne Innes (Stratford) were also evenly matched for the first half of the game lying 7 all at 9 ends, but a sudden spurt from the 11th end made the difference enabling them to finish ahead 21-16.
Jenny Corn (Lillington) with Di Medhurst (Stoke), Heather Tredgold (Southam) and Debbie Bloxham (Stratford) started slowly but 4 shots on the 6th end gave them short lived encouragement as their opposition pulled gradually away and they were left trailing 8-15 by the 15th end. However, they were not to be deterred and a strong recovery enabled them to pull ahead with a final winning score of 20-15.
Elaine Taylor (Stoke) with Dorothy Manson (Avon), Donna Kerr (RLS) and Jean Petty (Norgren) were 7 all at 10 ends and continued fairly evenly just managing to finish with a three shot lead 16-13.
