Pro-Am Gala Desborough Indoor Bowling Club
The first “Pro-Am” Gala took place at Desborough Indoor Bowling Club on Sunday 17th March amongst its disability members. Partners were drawn randomly on the day and each pair played two games of 1-hour duration with an hour rest between. The cup had been donated by the family of Dave Cotterill, and was presented to the eventual winners, who were Martin Cornwell and Andy Purcell, by Dave’s daughter, Louise. The day went well, with green fees being covered via a donation. Desborough’s President, Mr John Westwood opened proceedings Helpers were on the green to assist with directing play and measuring. Also, assistance with wheelchairs. At the end of the day proceedings were closed by Desborough’s lady President, Dawn Owen. Sue White thanked everyone who played, the helpers, the kitchen and bar staff who remained open all day, the score-keepers, Carol Coe and Graham Carley for making it such a successful event.
