Daventry Coyles Cup Competition

A maximum entry of 36 players from Daventry Indoor Bowling club took part in the annual drawn triples competition for the Coyles Cup Trophy last week. Teams were drawn as the players arrived and each team played four ends against four different opponents. Competition was fierce and in second place Margaret Daynes, Judy Hicks and John Dunkley gained  6 points and a +13 shot difference, but the runaway winners were  Audrey Russell, Lynn Moralee and Brian Scott, also with 6 points but a huge +23 shot difference.

Waitrose Support Club

Daventry Indoor Bowls club were delighted to receive a donation from Waitrose, through their green token scheme.

President, Sue Pernyes, Chairman John Sach and Dawn Notley from Waitrose can be seen in the photo below with the bowls brought with the donation.

President Sue, who had placed the application with Waitrose, sent them the following letter of thanks…..

Would you please pass on our thanks to all the Waitrose Daventry Partners for selecting our Club to be one of your charities in the green token scheme?

Thanks to your kindness, and the generosity of all your customers who put their tokens in our slot, we have been able to purchase three sets of the smallest size bowls for use in the Club.

We have an active coaching scheme and welcome everyone – young, old and disabled. With the new bowls we will be able to support and encourage more young people to take part – their hands are smaller and the new bowls will be ideal for them.

Once again, our thanks to everyone at the Waitrose Daventry branch.

Sometimes it’s the way the game is played!

Following last Sunday’s EIBA Fantastic Fives match against Welford on Avon IBC which resulted in a heavy win for Daventry the following message was received from the Welford side.

” Many thanks for the game on Sunday,played in a good spirit.Particular praise
to Geoff Smith, who acted as a perfect gentleman,in pushing my wifes wheel-chair
up and down the rink,she having unfortunately suffered a couple of broken toes
earlier in the week.His help and assistance was much appreciated,and ensured
that an enjoyable day was had.We look forward to the return,hopefully
without the wheel-chair.
Brian Lythall – Welford Bowls Club ”

Well done to the team for being excellent ambassadors for the Club, and to Welford for confirming that sometimes the spirit the game is played in is just as important as the result.
