2012 Ladies Open Triples Tournament

Everyone Agreed - It Was A Resounding Success!

The Winners - Ditton Bowls Club

Lenham Ladies Triples Tournament on the 9th August was deemed to be a “great success”  by all participants.

The weather was good, the green bowled well and the games were played in an excellent spirit.

Carol Morton, Lenham Ladies Captain, opened proceedings by welcoming everyone (picture below) and got the day off to a positive start.

We commenced with a spider which was won by Daphne Ellinor from Whitstable, she seemed particularly pleased with her prize of a litre bottle of Croft Sherry.

The teams played two games in the morning followed by lunch (beautifully prepared and served by our ladies under the supervision of Pam Cuckow), and a further two games in the afternoon, each game lasting 1 hour 15 minutes, with a 30 minute break between games.  Tea/coffee and cakes were available throughout the day - a big thank you to all the ladies that provided the cakes.

Carol was on hand to announce the result and present the prizes.

The overall winners were Ditton by one point from Whitstable who were second, with Bearsted “B” a close third; our congratulations to them all.

Second Place - Whitstable

Third Place - Bearsted ‘B’

A Few Words From Our Chairman ...

What a very successful day!  I must give thanks to all those who helped make the day what it was - with special thanks to Pam Cuckow, Lyn Fuller, Linda Warner and Jill Clifton who put in many, many hours and a lot of hard work to get the tournament going and worked particularly hard on the day; without their efforts the tournament would not have got off the ground.  Well done.

Thanks to Carol for opening and closing the day and thanks to Dick Comport and Dave Hopkins for preparing the green.  

We had a raffle which was extremely well supported - mind you, with 30+ prizes available this wasn’t too surprising!  Our thanks to everyone who donated prizes; greatly appreciated.

I can’t finish without mentioning Brian Fuller, John Cuckow and Doug Warner who alongside yours truly provided the muscle in rearranging the clubhouse furniture and decorating the green surround.  Doug also assisted me in organising the day’s proceedings and John and Brian manned the bar.  A huge thank you.

Given the extremely positive feedback we have received, it’s well on the cards that we will repeat the competition next year.
