Adur - Indoor Outdoor Clubs Event
Two Priory teams competed in the Adur Indoor event for Outdoor Clubs on Saturday 11 February.
The team of Mark Harwood, Roy Barclay, Amber Logan and Stuart Logan won all their group matches to come second in the group and then won the 3/4 playoff against Rottingdean.
The other team of Linda Harwood, Geoff Sheldon, John Fairs and Rob Kinley won the first three of their group matches but, in what was notionally a shootout for group winner, narrowly lost to Goring Manor in the last. GM then lost to Southwick Park in the final.
A very successful day for Priory.
Tarring Priory Annual Dinner
Jan 27th 2023
The evening also gave us the opportunity to say thank you to Wally Burrows who has now retred from Committe life and handed the running of the 50 club onto Butch Shakespeare.
Wally was presented with a small token of the cubs esteem and we wish him well for the future and hope to see him at the Tarring Priory matches in a spectator capacity in the warmer Summer months
Our Annual Club Dinner was held at Worthing Indoor Bowls Club and was very well attended by members their families and friends of the club.
The food was as always delicious and beautify prepared and presented and full marks to Kevin Tester for his part in making sure the correct food got to the correct recipients, Kevin is in fact one of the main drivers of the event and deserves our fullest praise. He even masterminded a photo quiz of sites around Worthing to entertain us whilst not eating.
John Profitt ran the raffle and was ably assisted by Gus Roberts. John enjoys the role of front of house and as usual gave us a memorable event.
