Ade Jennings to Meole Brace Bowling Club
So, once again we come to the end of a Meole Brace Open. Personally I'd like to thank all the bowlers that enter the competition as they make it the success that it is, This year we had a number of players that have entered for the first time and qualified for finals day. One of them actually managed to win it which is a huge achievement seeing as he'd never laid eyes on Meole before last week. As a club we should be proud of what we achieve each year and I'd like to thank all the members who come down to help during the competition. Lynne Jennings and Liz Jones do a wonderful job keeping everyone fed and watered, the two referees are on the green come rain or shine and the markers are invaluable (one marker who was there every day doesn't even play bowls but does his bit for the club, thank you Colin).
