" PRESENTATION EVENING " 2016
I would like to Thank all those who supported the M&DBA Presentation Evening last night .
The Retrobeats were once again very entertaining, as was the dancing in the later part of the evening.
Many Thanks go to Barry Street and the Pack Horse for the use of their club.
I would like to wish you all a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
BENNETT CUP HANDICAP COMPETITION 2016.
Another great competition to end the season, the Bennett cup did at last take place with the help of Mottram Bowling Club, who's members kindley help the very damp day with great refreshments and constant hot drinks. Thank You.
With 34 entries the competition got of to a very wet start, unfortunatley the first six games got the worst of the weather, some of the players never getting dry again. Down to the quarter finals we had Ian Peers playing Mike Procter, Syd Kennerly playing Brenda Bailey, Steve Barton playing Sylvia Bostock and Pat Griffiths playing Janet Dean. All four games were tough and well won, Ian Peers was through to play Brenda Bailey and Steve Barton to play Janet Dean in the semi finals. The final being between Steve Barton and Brenda Bailey, Steve was always the stronger player and well deserved to win the competition.
Thank You to all the Macclesfield & District bowlers who have supported our competitions throughout the season. Thank You also to all the clubs that have hosted the Knockout competitions.
Regards Brenda Bailey
