Calne BC launch new website

Calne Bowls Club has just launched a fresh new website ready for the 2019 season. The site has been designed and built by Ian Thomas of Highworth, who was also responsible for the Bowls Wiltshire site, along with several more clubs in Wiltshire and further afield – such as Babbacombe and Swanage.

The Calne Bowls Club Secretary said:
“starting a website from scratch was quite intimidating, having had no previous experience in this area. We decided to view various club websites that Ian had developed, and from this a ‘pick and mix’ of what would be ideal for Calne BC was determined. Ian was an excellent tutor who helped every inch of the way, using his experience to teach, guide and flag up potential pitfalls. Calne BC now has a website it can be proud of, plus the resources to keep it updated – which is very important.”

You can find the new Calne site at http://www.calnebowlsclub.co.uk
For bowls club website design, check out Ian’s site at http://www.bowlsclub.info

EBYDS – Wiltshire County Finals

On Sunday 24th February 2019, the Wiltshire EBYDS (English Bowls Youth Development Scheme) finals were held at Five Rivers Indoor Bowls Club. The bowlers are split into Seniors and Juniors sections and play a round robin competition in the morning and four skills tests in the Afternoon. Each event is marked with the totals added to find the winners in each section.

The event was well attended by Parents, Helpers and Coaches and we thank all of them. A special thanks to Five Rivers for hosting the event and to WIBA who helped fund the event.

The results are:

SENIORS
1               Emily Jacob – 61 points – N Wilts
2               Kerry Hatherall – 56 Points – Westlecot
3               Arthur Brown – 52 points – N Wilts
4               Andrew Mardle – 50 points – N Wilts
5               Ellise Ambridge – 37 points – N Wilts
6               Eddie Mason – 33 points – Five Rivers
JUNIORS
1               Zoe Fletcher – 60 points – Westlecot
2               Evan Boynton – 42 points – Five Rivers
3               Marissa Ambridge – 34 points – N Wilts
4               Olli Joyce – 17 points – N Wilts
—————
Congratulations to you all. It was a fine display of skill. All the players were presented with Certificates of Attendance and the winners their respective trophies.
There will probably be a Regional event in April where the Wiltshire players will meet the Worcestershire finalists. The winners and runner ups from the two sections at the Regional Finals will then play at the National EBYDS Finals later in the year.
Below is a picture of one of the exercises and then a group photograph of Bowlers and the Coaches who ran the event.
