A thank-you to the Kingscote Bowling Club and the green keeper for their green and facilities, and special thanks to John Berden and Kevin Glasson, who conducted the draw and managed the days play on both weeks.

John Berden, who has been the successful player for the last five years handed over the shield to David O’Brien, who will keep the shield at the Birchmore Club for the next 12 months.

It was great to see the support and reputation from all three clubs. All enjoyed the event, and showed enthusiasm towards next year’s competition.

Hoping to see many over 70-year-old players enjoy this event next year, and wishing all a happy Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year.
