This was held on Thursday 13th September at Meole Brace where we had a total of 32 entries. The weather was very kind to us and all players had a most enjoyable day. After 7 rounds of 8 ends per round the eventual winner with 70 points was Dave Povey (Pontesbury A) with Glenys Jones (Oswestry Church A) on 69 points as runner up. 


Dave was presented with the Bill Garratt Memorial Cup by League President Margaret Cooper, and also received the traditional engraved tankard. Glenys received a plant arrangement in a basket.


The raffle made well over £60 which the League will top up to £100 which will be donated to Severn Hospice in Shrewsbury.


Finally thanks to Meole Brace BC for letting us use their excellent facilities and for the splendid catering arrangements which kept players going throughout the day.

 Interim League President


Our President Ed Jackson continues to suffer ill health and has reluctantly decided to cease being President of our League. Ed served the League as Results/Fixtures Secretary for many years before retiring and was unanimously erected President in appreciation for all he had done for the League.


The League Chairman and Secretary feel that continuity should be maintained between now and the AGM and so on your behalf have asked Margaret Cooper the League Treasurer to become President and we are very pleased to say that she has accepted. At the AGM she will be formally nominated by the Chairman and Secretary for the role of President for all she has done for the League over the many years she has been Treasurer, a post she intends to continue with. It was also felt appropriate to appoint Ed as an Honorary Life Member.
