President Jim Sissens welcomed everyone with a special mention to our 4 guests from sponsors Vives Pons. He also gave a note of thanks to our Markers and Umpires and to Stewart Beattie our Vice Captain who organised the Championships. Captain Tony Carroll announced the presentation of awards and thanked all players who had taken part this year and the many new bowlers entering their first competitions.
