The tournament was well attended and thanks go to all clubs who entered a team. The 16 teams were split into two groups with each team playing four games and the winners of each group playing in the final.

The group winners were Winkleigh from Devon and Evercreech from Somerset. After an excellent final played over 10 ends, Winkleigh were the eventual winners. The trophies were sponsored by Gary Cox (Glazing) Ltd and presented by Judy Rowdon from the League of Friends. Thanks go to captain Frank Paige for organising another excellent tournament and to the ladies who worked tirelessly in the kitchen.

The raffle, where everything was donated raised in excess of £300. After an excellent day’s bowling for all concerned, the final amount raised was £1,100.
