Win over Bedfordshire
Warwickshire Vice-Presidents Bowls Association played Bedfordshire VPs at Snitterfield and won by 41 shots. At ten ends Terry Briggs, Rex Fox, Derek Wattison and Ian Bassnett were 16 shots ahead and went on to be the highest winning rink at 32-14. At about the fifth end all eyes were on the sky as a spitfire and hurricane flew over the green three times before flying off to another revue.
Warwickshire VP’s annual game in memory of John Boilstone saw Coventry & District win by 38 shots at Coventry Avenue BC. WVPs’ highest winning rink comprised Phil O’Shea, Mike Davies, Ted North and Roy Lawrence, with 30-12.
