The Morris Taylor Trophy was played today. We had a tremendous turnout of 24 bowlers and it was great to see all 6 rinks in use. The winning pair were Margaret Ibbotson and Martin Smith, the runners up are Geoff Howsden and John Barchan, (on a count back of shots). Congratulations and well done to Les Harrison for his organisation and everyone for making the evening a great success. This is now the second compeititon to be played on a Sunday evening with 16 for the Australian pairs and 24 for the Morris Taylor and seems to be the overwhelming choice of day for the members. The next event is the Arthur Mowbray, currently scheduled for Saturday 2nd June. However, given the turn out for the previous two comps being played on the Sunday, It is proposed to re-schedule this for Sunday 3rd at 6:00 prompt, please arrive 5:45 latest. Les has also arranged for a BBC Radio Tees presenter Amy Oakden, to turn up on the evening to watch us play and try it out . Hope to see a good turnout
