All competitors were given the opportunity to have their say via a survey. Approx 50% of the surveys were completed. I will compile a report on these.
A twos competition was held and 125 competitors entered it at £ 2.00 so £ 250 collected and paid out to 10 lucky players who recorded a 2, all getting £ 25.00 each.
David Morgan came to take photographs which went down well. The trophy is currently in my possession I will speak to Matt Nixon, our County Secretary, about were this can be kept until next year.
The winners received a logo-ed whiskey cut glass as a memento.
Please note that both events known as the Spring meeting and the Autumn meeting, I stated at the presentations that both events needed a new focus. I felt that the Vice Presidents Bowl and the Jack Urry Cup, needed to be advertised as the trophies competitors will compete for in the future.
This was agreed so the Spring and Autumn meetings are the former, these events to be recognised as above.
