On Wednesday 9th July a coach arrived at Salisbury BC carrying the BE President’s Touring Party – visiting Wiltshire because Adie Lloyd is the BE President this year.
A buffet lunch was laid on for the whole party plus the BW team after which 4 rinks of BE players took the coach to Wilton BC to play a game against the Club while 6 rinks remained at Salisbury to play against a BW Mixed side.
The game was played mostly in sunshine and there was some good, competitive bowling. The result was a win for Bowls Wiltshire by 18 shots – 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. Top Rink was skipped by BW Men SVP Richard Gardiner with Mary Butchers, Les Cook & Jane Taylor.
After the game the teams adjourned to the Club house for liquid refreshment and the speeches. BW Chairperson June Corbett welcomed Adie and his Party and thanked him for bringing his Tour to Wiltshire. Adie presented a gift to Salisbury BC to mark the occasion and thanked BW for their hospitality.
We must thank the hard working members of Salisbury BC who hosted this very special and successful day.
