After the Nomads Charity disbanded they asked Disability Bowls England to take over the running of their annual disability pairs competition and gave a donation to help with the costs of running the event at Taunton Deane IBC.
Players came from all over the South West and included players from each disability group. 8 pairs were drawn into 2 groups of 4 playing each other, with the winners of each group competing in the final.
Volunteers from the disbanded Nomad Charity came along to help and along with Umpire Keith ensured the event ran smoothly.
son Yearling & Geoff Wherry & directors Paul Yearling & Sue Wherry culminating in a nail biting last end with the shot changing after every bowl. Alison & Geoff just managed to hold on to second bowl to win the match by 6 shots to 5 and pick up The Nomads Shield.
Representatives from the disbanded Nomads Charity presented the finalists & directors The Shield, along with trophies & medals.
Thanks go to all the competitors, families & volunteers who came along and to Taunton Deane IBC for hosting the event.
Such was the success that DBE intend to run it again next year and hope that even more players for the South West will enter and enjoy the camaraderie and competition.”
