The East Lancashire Derby Bowling Competition
The East Lancashire Derby Bowling Competition took place on Saturday, 2nd July 2016 at Elton Cricket and Bowling Club, Bury. The signs were not good that the competition was even going to take place with the heavy rain in the morning. Thankfully the rain stopped right on time and held off throughout the competition.
This year twelve pairs entered the competition, with the Final being contested by:
WBro Geoff Leach and WBro Sam Turtington of Pilkington Lodge No 6522 [Bury District] and WBro Alan S Mercer and Bro Stevan Taylor of the Lodge of Fidelity and Crusaders No 269 [East Ribble].
The winners being WBro Mercer and Bro Taylor.
The East Lancashire Derby Bowling Cup was presented to the winners by WBro Jeremy Aston, PJGD, who offered, on behalf of the RW Provincial Grand Master, his sincere congratulations to the winners.
He also extended a very special thank you to WBro Geoff Leach and his wife, Jill for once again organising the competition and in particular for arranging for the excellent pie and peas lunch!
