What a way to end our bowls finals weekend at Ember! The day started with the Coronation Cup in the morning and Egham beating Raynes Park. The morning also saw Jim Byrne win the non-winners and Tony Baker and Roy Barton the Open Pairs Handicap.
The afternoon games kicked off with a heavyweight championship match that saw Malcolm and Jenny Baird win on the last bowl of the last end against Tony and Mary Baker in the “Bairds vs. Bakers” Mixed Pairs Championship. A truly epic game and well done to both the Bakers and Bairds for making it such a great contest!
In the ladies final, Sylvia Jones beat Beth Cartledge in a well fought match of skill and tactics, while Dick Jones was deservedly crowned the Men’s Champion after beating Stuart Chalmers 21-16 in a well played and close tactical game.
Finally, thanks to everyone who took part, organised the competitions, did bar duty, baked cakes, made teas and lunches, put up/put away tables and chairs, kept the green in tip-top shape, washed up and cheered on our finalists. You all made it a brilliant weekend – see you next year!
