BW Mixed v Swindon County Ground

On Sunday 7th June a BW Mixed side arrived at County Ground BC to play a game to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the club. It was a lovely warm, sunny afternoon and this allowed everyone to relax and enjoy the occasion. The game was played in good spirits with the ‘three stooges’ again on top form and with many others joining in with the banter and camaraderie that is a regular feature of these games. Nevertheless, the BW players are always competitive, and there was no exception to this rule, with the result being a win for BW by 10 shots. The Top Rink was skipped by Dave Richards with June Corbett, Don Butchers and Karen Kirby.

The meal was served partially al fresco and was appreciated by all after a busy afternoon on the green. Afterwards everyone convened in the club house for the speeches and raffle. There was the usual friendly exchange of thanks and congratulations during which certain members of the BW team were fined for their behaviour during the afternoon – there were three of them – see above !!! This resulted in a retaliation in the form of a reciprocal fine being extracted from the BW Chair, June !!

All in all this was a great afternoon and was enjoyed by all. A BIG thank you to the lovely members of County Ground BC for the invitation to play at their Club on this special occasion and for their excellent hospitality. We wish them all the best for the remaining part of their 90th year.
