FINALS WEEK – BOB VISE TROPHY
On Monday 29th August 2022 we had the first of our three Finals Days for 2022 with Townsend playing Welwyn & District in the morning for the Bob Vise Trophy Final.
North Mymms BC Members did a great job getting everything ready despite having no Electricity for most of the day before!
Well done to all of them.
We had a great morning of Bowls on all four rinks of Singles, Pairs, Triples & Fours. Ignoring the final scores, there was a fine display of good quality bowling from two very sporting and friendly teams. There was a good crowd of supporters enjoying the early sun and the fine bowling.
Winners today were Welwyn & District. WELL DONE. Runners-Up were Townsend who put up a gallant resistance all morning. Photographs (see post above), courtesy of Clyde Martindill of Townsend.
Well done to the Marker Peter Stokes, Umpire Brian Burfoot, Catering Officer Karen King and all the team at North Mymms. They have all set a very high standard for our remaining two Finals events. These are:-
- Friday 2nd September (at 5. 30 pm) for the Jones Cup Final, and
- Saturday 3rd September from 9.00.a.m.onwards for the rest of our Finals.
