Presidents Report 2019-2020

It’s been a busy indoor season, with all our County friendly’s being played away. In October we went to the Dolphin IBC in Dorset, with mixed fortunes and the following day to Cotswold IBC in Stroud, which was very popular due to a carvery at the end of the game, so popular in fact, we have booked to go there again next year!!!

Then in the early part of November we played Somerset at Bristol and a few days later went to Swindon Manor, an enjoyable game with fish and chips bought in from the local chippy!!

At the beginning of December, it was Charity Match, which was well supported and raised £456 for both Alzheimer’s Support and Salisbury Hospice.

Sadly, the Gala arranged to be played at Five Rivers on the 8th was postponed and then later cancelled.

Mid December, our last game before Christmas, we went to Dorchester to play the Atherley Trophy against Dorset. This match was a hard fought, competitive game, with Wiltshire ladies only losing overall by 3 points, 112-115. Although disappointing, it shows our ladies are good enough to win these events!!!

New year, new decade, 2020.

Late January, we held a new style triples competition, where skips, blind picked their teams, so nobody knew prior to the event who they were going to play with. It was a bit of fun and Fizz kindly gave “pink hedgehogs” to the winners.

The Top 9, which should have been played the following day, was postponed and re-scheduled to late March.

Our next match, in February, was against the men, a game they had won for the past two years and pretty smug about it they were too!!! Needless to say, our ladies were up for the challenge and we beat them convincingly 128 – 106. Well done ladies!!!

Later that month we went to Chawton Park in Hampshire, where we lost heavily but had fun along the way.

In early March, we went to West Berks IBC on the 7th and the following day was Presidents Day. Once again, Fizz kindly ran the event, which went very smoothly and was enjoyed by all. It was another feather in the cap for the ladies because last year the men won the day but this year Janice Bull and her team were the overall winners, so well done to them. 

I had a lovely day and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Sadly, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, indoor bowling clubs have been closed for the rest of the indoor season which means there will now be no Top 9 or AGM.

At times, this year has been very taxing, trying to ensure we have enough players and in particular, transport to get us to the different venues. However, we made it and a big thank you must go to the support of the committee who have worked tirelessly to make sure these away games all went ahead. Also, to the ladies who support the Indoor County by regularly putting their names down to play and finally to Fizz, who has organised and run all our local events.

                                                                                 Thank you

                                                                  Bev Lilley ( County President)
