Following the successful sessions held at Wroughton BC on the 24th, at Salisbury BC on the 28th and Spencer Melksham on the 29th there still several of the regular Wiltshire players who have not ordered a new shirt. For information the cut is slightly more snug fitting than the previous shirts.
The cost of the new shirts is £10.00 if you swap in an “old” shirt – maximum of 2 swaps per person; additional shirts for 2018 cost £25.00 – thereafter who knows
Please note that Marcia is co-ordinating the orders for Amy Rose players.
We will not be ordering a large stock in reserve as in the past this has cost the county money with write-offs; In future the time from order to delivery is a minimum of 6 weeks and that’s without any Brexit issues!!

Bowls England this morning released the names of those selected for Senior International trials to be at Royal Leamington Spa on the 22nd of September.
Alison Fail of Purton has been named on the Ladies list while Steve Snell has been named as an attending reserve on the Men’s.
BWL President Dawn Edwards was involved in an amusing incident tonight along with Graham Annetts, Gerald Webb and Officers from Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire & Dorset whilst attending a Corporate Dinner hosted by Bowls England.
As the Main Course was being served the table started to collapse and only the swift reaction of those sitting at the table saved the dinner and drinks from ending up on the floor. Staff from the Royal Pump Rooms in Royal Leamington Spa quickly came to their aid by supporting the table whilst another table was quickly set up and the dinners transferred. All ended well for those on table 11 when two bottles of bubbly were produced for them to enjoy the rest of the evening.
President Dawn stated ” I haven’t laughed so much for years”.
Message from Ken Bray:
“I am very pleased to announce that the sum of £229.45 was raised yesterday for the men’s benevolent fund. Special thanks must go to Alison for the many prizes for the raffle donated by McCarthy & Stone.
Thanks to all involved
The first Bowls Wiltshire Mixed Friendly of the year was held on the 6th May at Swindon BC, this match is an annual event between the two Associations.
A very pleasant afternoon was had by all, the weather was superb and the green excellent. BW came out the winners 128-111 ably assisted by a rink from Garrards BC, thank you to them for this.
There was a lot of laughter and banter as we met up with friends not seen for a while, so all in all a most enjoyable game.
Our thanks to Swindon BC for hosting the match, to their catering and bar staff, and to all those who supported the chosen Charity for 2018 ‘Brighter Futures ’, raising a very creditable £54.
