England: Tournament for the visually impaired was a huge success!

FOURTEEN teams from as far afield as Cornwall and South Wales competed in Bridgwater's fourth annual Visually Impaired Tournament at The Parks recently.

Organised by Eric Shackleford (chairman) and Pat Lovell of Bridgwater's visually-impaired section, the tournament was opened by Bridgwater BC president Harold Punch bowling the first wood. Members of the Club assisted with marking, scoring and record-keeping.

The Turner Cup, presented by Turner Opticians who also sponsored the event, was presented by the president to Forge A, from Cirencester, the tournament winners.

Runners-up were Yeovil A. Eric Shackleford thanked all the helpers, especially the refreshment ladies who worked throughout the day; Strings'n' Things for supplying the loudspeaker equipment; the other helpers and Gerber of Bridgwater for a promised donation towards the cost of the event.
