Oundle Bowling Club held its first Gala Day on Sunday 5th of August. A total of eighteen teams entered the match, eleven being visiting teams and the remainder from OBC. The President, Margaret Walker, welcomed the teams and the match got under way at 9.15 am, each team playing a total of 4 matches of 7 ends. A hot lunch was provided as well as tea and cakes in the afternoon and a raffle followed.
Most visiting teams competing, were from around the County, however, it was a pleasure to welcome, once again, the team from Disability Bowls England who had previously visited us, on our Open Weekend. The day was supported by local Business Association sponsors, Just Lets, Bulley Davey Accountants, Waterland Architects and QI Marketing & Web Design, to whom we are very grateful.
After a very warm day’s bowling, all matches had been played by 5 pm and the winning team announced by the President, was an Oundle team, led by Margaret Marlow. The runner up team was from Irthlingborough B.C. The winning team received £120.00 and the runner up team £60.00
Many participants said that they had enjoyed their day and looked forward to attending our 2019 Gala
