Captain versus President Day and “Festival Bowls” !!
Last week Willian held their Annual “Captain versus President Day”, with Roy Murden, President and Sam Salmon, Captain and their Teams competing for honours.
A fun Bowls “Spider” was also held to raised money for charity, with Maureen Kitchener the winner.
After a long afternoon, with players competing on different rinks, in various positions and different partners, the Red Team, led by Sam Salmon were victorious in a very close match at 38 – 34. Members were rewarded with a sumptuous afternoon Tea, followed by Strawberries and Cream.
On the same Day, Willian were also participating in the Letchworth Festival and offering their “Come and Try Festival Bowls Day”.
The news of this event must have spread further afield than Willian expected, with several Bowlers turning up to have a go – from Canada !!
Photo above shows the Canadian Team being ably coached by Willian’s, John Skingsley.
