2018 MENS PRESIDENTS MESSAGE (click to show/hide)
I would like to wish all members of the Royal County of Berkshire Bowling Association a very happy and healthy 2018. Let us all enjoy our wonderful game of Bowls and the super friendships we make whilst playing it. It is an honour to be your Men’s President this year and I would like to thank Reading BC for not only nominating me but also for putting up with me for the last 25 years while I have tried to master this game we play. Those of you who I have had the pleasure of playing with will know that I still have much more to learn!
I would like to congratulate David Davies of Thatcham BC our immediate Past President for a very enjoyable 2017 and to all the members of the Executive Committee for their hard work and wise counsel over the last two years. I look forward to working closely with our very able Senior Deputy President Keith Sawdon of Bracknell Bowling Club and all the members of the Executive, Management and Selection Committees without whose hard work our County Organisation would not be able to function properly. I would also like to welcome our new Junior Deputy President Ray Clark of Trentham BC to our Team.
We have a great mix of members in Berkshire and I would particularly like to wish our Elite Players good fortune whilst representing our County. Thank you to Micky Willis and his team for the excellent job they are doing with our Middleton Cup and Home Counties League Squads and let’s hope that we can do even better in 2018. I would also like to thank Barry Dillon for his excellent work with out under 30’s Squad who also performed superbly well. The County will again have a full programme of Inter County Matches, Bannerettes and Celebration Matches and I would like to thank all the Clubs who will be hosting these events. Thank you also to our Umpires, Markers and Coaches whose time and efforts are so essential.
I look forward seeing old friends making new ones during the year and again would wish everyone a happy, healthy and successful 2018!
2018 LADIES PRESIDENTS MESSAGE (click to show/hide)
It is a great honour and privilege to be your President in 2018. I do sincerely thank my Club, Suttons for nominating me, knowing all the extra work that will be involved.
I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible on my President’s Days. These games are always enjoyable and friendly. They are also an excellent way both to get to know newer bowlers and for them to meet County Officers and Past Presidents of the County.
Let’s hope 2018 will be a successful year for our Walker, John’s and Amy Rose teams.
Good luck to all bowlers in both County and Club Competitions.
I wish you all an enjoyable, happy and successful season.
