General News: Tournament Review and Thank-Yous

Posted by: PostNuke-SOE on Jan 30, 2018 - 12:50 AM Tournament Info 
A very tough event this year, due to circumstances beyond our control
The bowling centre changed suppliers and we had to use a new oil. Despite our testing it proved to be a very difficult condition to play on. The only saving grace was that it was the same for all 4 days of competition. So an unintentionally hard condition but fair because it was the same for everyone. We do sincerely apologise for this and will get to grips with it before our next event.

But it did highlight the need to bowl straight at your spares!

Thank Yous

First of all a very big thank you to the bowl staff who worked tirelessly under extremely difficult circumstances especially the Technicians!

To the Tournament Committee; John and Jacqui, Wendy, Tina, Shirley and the whole Sexton family Mick and Shirley for all their work on making this event the best with live update scoring and the best Trophy presentation event.

To our YBC members for their work as Lane Marshalls; Dominic, Kyle, Jordan, Hayden, Toby and Ryan.

And a very extra special Thank you to Steve a Leighfield who as Assistant Tournament Manager worked in every department. From installing the Coffee machine to ensuring that the Lane machine kept running the same pattern for the whole 4 days.

Thank you

We have a very dedicated team here that it would be impossible to run an event without their efforts.

To anyone else that I've forgotten to mention by name on the team your help is very much appreciated.

And Finally...

To all the Parents and bowlers who came to the event especially those who travelled back again for the presentation ceremony.

To see all of those happy, smiling young faces when they collect their award makes it all truly worthwhile .

The biggest Thank you of all
