West Mersea Bowls Club
2019 St Patrick's Gala
The annual St Patrick’s Day gala, sponsored by our friends at Tesco's, took place on the 17th March 2019 and it was extremely well supported giving the two "Daves" no end of problems which they coped with in their usual confident style. The competition was divided into two groups with the winning team in each group playing each other in the final. The spectators were entertained to some exceptional bowling throughout the afternoon not least in the final when the result was in doubt until the very last bowl of the match with the winning team finally coming out on top by a single shot!
The runners up were Annie Riches, Marion Barrett, Tony Corbey and skip Brian Johnson and the eventual winners were George Savini, Carol Everett, Greg Barrett and skip Mario Zammit. President Ian Wingar presented the trophy following which players and spectators enjoyed an excellent buffet financed by Tesco's and prepared by our catering team.
