CALENDAR BOWLING GIRLS 2018
GET YOUR KIT OFF FOR RESEARCH INTO MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE
Calendar Bowling Girls 2018 is a charity calendar in honour of Mel Evans MBE. A fit, strong, healthy and active man, Mel was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in April 2016. A cruel illness that has no known cause, no effective treatment and no cure. Thirteen well known lady bowlers from all over the country have come together to create Calendar Bowling Girls 2018. Each calendar costs £10 with all proceeds going to research into MND. Orders can be placed via
lpritchatt@outlook.com
and it can also be purchased on E-Bay.

THE MEL EVANS, MBE. 24 HOUR BOWLATHON
All proceeds in aid of MOTOR NEURONE RESEARCH

On Saturday 28th October/Sunday 29th October 2017, starting at 08.00, there will be a 24 hour Bowlathon at the MOBBERLEY VICTORY HALL BC. Town Lane, Knutsford. WA16 7JQ. The top bowlers in the country have been invited to take part in memory of Mel Evans MBE. Mel worked tirelessly in bringing the game of Crown Green Bowling back into the public eye and was active within the BCGBA in generating funds and awareness for this great game of ours. This and so much more. We are asking all 16 Counties within the BCGBA to provide 12 of your top county bowlers to take part in this event. Due to demand, the Bowlathon is now open to any players, male/female/juniors/veterans. With all that talent it should be a packed out event so your early response would be appreciated. Delighted to say we have some of the legends of the game past and present making the effort to support this fantastic event. These include Greg Smith, Gary Ellis, Graeme Wilson, Simon Coupe, Glynn Cookson, Tommy Johnstone, Noel Burrows, Stan Frith, Mike Leach and maybe the great man himself Brian Duncan. Ideally organiser Steve Cook needs the names of the 12 players, their preferred playing time, the amount raised in sponsorship by the end of September in order to notify all players of their start times. Sponsorship preferably £50 per player is payable in cash or cheque on the day. Each player need only commit to one hour, there are only 8 slots per hour so first come first served. There is parking on site. On the day there will be a host of other events taking place so there will be something for everyone, Refreshments, food, displays etc. This event is hopefully the first in number of events to support the cause that is so close to Mel’s family and friends, MOTOR NEURONE RESEARCH. Thank you in advance for your support and co-operation, I am sure we can achieve a massive success in raising funds and bringing our game into the public eye. Please support in any way you can. This has the opportunity to be a fantastic inaugural event and will raise much needed funding to support ongoing research into MND. Any help you can give will be much appreciated. Please help us do Mel Evans Mel Evans Mbe proud.

The Joe Broadhurst Clic Sargent Charity Pairs Competition

This years bowling was a credit to everyone with some outstanding come backs
especially Paul Roberts & Jane Lamb who were all but 8 down in the first round to
Steve & Steve P Baskerville but still managed to win on a green they had never seen before. At this moment in time they have managed to raise £977. This is the 6th year in running this competition and organiser Mark Sandham, has so far donated well over £5,000 to Clic Sargent (a children's cancer charity). This years competition was retained by Martin & Grant who played superbly well all day they were truly worthy winners.

From Matt Enever, Researcher at back2back productions ltd

I am working on a TV documentary series about demolitions, and as part of the series we are filming the demolition of the sports facility at Brinnington Park. I am trying to speak to anyone that played bowls at Brinnington Park before the site closed, who can perhaps tell me a bit more about the history of the area.
If you are able to help me and put me in contact with someone, I would be truly grateful. My number is 01273 499 816, or my email address is matt.enever@back2back.tv.

Two Stockport short mat bowls players are celebrating after being crowned world pairs champions. 25-year-old Liam Smith from Offerton and 24-year-old Peter Roberts from Romiley won the World Pairs Masters Tournament on Sunday. They beat Ireland’s Lee Jacob and David Bonner 11-6 in the final. The champions both play for St Albans indoor bowling club. New world champion Liam, first got into the sport when his local football match was called off: “I had to go out with my grandparents, they were going to a game of bowls so I went along and it was Ok. I started getting into it because I was into sport, it was quite competitive. “I said I wouldn’t mind having a go at this and eventually we got a group of juniors together to play in the Stockport Metro League.” For more information on how to get involved with indoor bowls and to follow in the footsteps of Stockport’s latest world champions, see the Short Mat Players Tour website

This years Annual Charity game between Smarty’s Bamy Army and Michelle’s Men (and ladies) will once again be played at Glossop BC on Easter Monday, 28th March, getting underway at 11am. As last year's pairs format seemed quite popular we’ll stick with it, so that everyone should get at least a couple of games in. Anyone who wants to play, regardless of ability will get a game. All we ask is that players donate £5 each to the pot or £2 for juniors. There will be the usual raffle (all donations of prizes to the raffle gratefully received) and other fun games, as well as refreshments available all day. If anyone has any suggestions for this years good cause, or causes, let me know via email at peter.conway21@ntlworld.com or phone on 07580 098884. Any good cause or charity considered. Last year everyone contributed to raising about £800. Thanks again to Glossop BC for allowing us the use of the green and facilities and to Nigel at Perrigo Sports for their kind sponsorship.
