Bowls promotion 27 April 2018 at 6pm

This event is being run by Mark Courtney & England International David Bolt. The idea is to get the local authorities PLUS LOCAL BUSINESSES/ ORGANISATIONS to see what great facilities DIBC has, and to be more aware of us when we ask for help with grants or help with getting into schools etc.  Also, there may be the odd person that really enjoys it and take up the game.

Mark is hoping that we will support him, by helping on the night, invite teams of three people (companies, clubs, schools, WI, etc.).

Plan for the evening.

David Bolt (a week after returning from Australia playing for England in the Common wealth Games)  to host the evening”

  • Free bowls coaching from 6pm to 7pm
  • “BowlsFit”,for everyone (i), Bowls warm up 7pm to 7.15pm
  • A “Bowls Gala” for teams of 3 from 7.15pm to 8.15pm
  • Have a go at “setting a bowls world record” from 8.30pm to 9pm

Mark already has a number of teams confirmed, including our MP, Mayor, Councillors and local companies.

Could you let John Sach or Mark know if you can help.
