THE ST IPPOLYTS BOWLER

 

 

Overall we had a good season. In addition to winning the SML Knockout Competition for the second time, our ladies won the North Herts Ladies League with a total of 42 points (Royston were runners up on 41 points). We came third in the SML just two points behind the league winners. We also won 10 out of 19 friendlies.

 

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING

The coffee morning raised an impressive £494.

Thank you to everyone who contributed, attended or helped out with this very worthy cause.

 

CASINO NIGHT

Thanks to Tony & Katherine for running last month's successful Casino night.

The evening, along with bar sales and raffle, raised much needed funds for the club. It is hoped to run another one in April.

 

PRESENTATION EVENING

Photos from the recent presentation evening at Riverain will appear on the club website (Honours2018).

A big thank you to all concerned in organising the event.
