Just a few days to go before the televised finals of the Co-operative Funeralcare Waterloo Handicap Finals. The Waterloo committee have been working tirelessly behind the scenes in conjunction with Co-operative Funeralcare and ITV4 for many weeks. Crown Green Bowls has been crying out for years for this opportunity to showcase our beloved sport on terrestrial television. It’s been 26 year since the Waterloo was last on free to view television. Back in the 80’s our sport was regularly broadcast and gave opportunities for guys like Brian Duncan, Noel Burrows, Vernon Lee etc the chance to become household names. A whole generation have not had the chance to display their skills on nationwide TV until now. Let’s hope this is the shot in the arm our game needs to propel it back into the public eye and encourage more to take up the game. The Co-operative Funeralcare have invested in excess of £50,000 to fund the ITV4 coverage. Arguably the biggest cash investment ever associated with Crown Green Bowls and they should be applauded and supported for their marvellous generosity. Let’s hope the Crown Green Bowls fraternity turn out at our “Wembley” in numbers to support this fantastic opportunity to show that Crown Green Bowls is alive and kicking. Don’t forget if you have a ticket for Tuesday 15th you will get in FREE for the Finals on Wednesday 16th. The last 32 on Monday 14th is being streamed live from 10.00am on Globegig in conjuction with ITV4 will also live stream all the action on Tuesday 15th (last 16) & the finals on Wednesday 16th (Finals day) from 10.00am each day on the above link. So if you can’t make it to Blackpool you can pick up all the action be it on TV or laptop anywhere in the world.

Mark Sutton says :-
HI ALL, The dates for the Fallowfield bowling week have been agreed and although its been agreed to play the pairs on some of the same dates as the Houldsworth pairs we have spoken with Glen Beeley the organiser of the competion and feel that this week in October will be like a smaller version of the Fleetwood festival as players can play in 2 competitions and we can have 2 final days on different days and a one day 64 for a great charity of Epilepsy Awareness on the Saturday. Everyone can get a game in before the dreaded winter comes along and with that in mind here are the dates for the Fallowfield Bowling Week.

Nursey's Andy Murray writes :-
My wife Amy is going to "Brave The Shave" for Macmillan Cancer Support. On the 30th August 2015 she is having her hair shaved and we are looking for some donations from all you kind bowlers. As a few of you are aware Amy is disabled and she struggles every day with her illnesses, but she has taken it upon herself to give something back to a very worthwhile charity. Amy is only trying to raise £250 but with your support I am hoping she can smash this total. There is a link at the bottom of this post if anyone could make a small donation it would be greatly appreciated.

You can go to Amy's blog page HERE to see why she's doing it and how you can donate if you could spare a couple of quid.

Bowls in Stockport has received another huge boost with a massive open competition launched. The event sponsored by Thwaites Brewery will take place this Sunday at West Heaton Bowling and Tennis Club in Hetaon Moor.The club has never hosted such an event which has taken nearly 12 months of planning for Eddie Tasker, Jimmy Parker and several others. The venue is regarded as a bit of a hidden gem which until now has been unseen by the country’s top players.

A high quality field of 32 with some of the country's big names invited should make for a top days play. The prize pot on the day is in excess of £1100 with plenty to play for every bowl will count. The venue will also provide hot/cold food and refreshments all day with a bookmaker and scoreboards in operation. Many of the players have been invited down by Jimmy Parker including some from Birmingham who may not have often been in the Stockport area. Entry is by programme on the day with practice from 9am and play underway at 10am. The venue itself is located on Princes Road near Tythe Barn School in Heaton Moor and has a car park for those visiting.

The following players are entered on the day with two representatives from Stockport also involved. Martin Gilpin (Kendal), Ian Nicholson (Kendal), Matt Gatley (Warrington), Chris Livesey (Northern Etchells), Darren Plenderleith (Burton), Suart Meddings (Birmingham), Carl Fielding (Birmingham), Noel Burrows (Sale), Greg Smith (Birmingham), Ryan Prosser (Birmingham), Barry Booth (Potteries), Ben Harris (Birmingham), Tommy Johnstone (Poynton), Elliot Mcguinness (Birmingham), Lee Brown (Stoke), Matt Gilmore (Wirral), Paul Bailey (Sheffield), John Bailey (North Wales), Daniel Jones (North Wales), Carl Armitage (Warrington), Callum Wraight (Shrewsbury), Kerry Morris (Stoke), Dan Petcher (Burton), Michael Heap (Wigan), Craig Rammell (Accrington), Luke Davies (Wolverhampton), Ian Hazelhurst (Tranmere), Jamie Bramley (Stockport), Chris Barlow (Stockport), Mike Tunstall (Richmond), Thomas Dennison (Burton In Kendal), Phil Lee (Richmond)

Ashton Winter League
Organiser Mark Sutton sums up the final week :-
Well we got here and the league was wide open for places right through the league and the atmosphere was fantastic and the banter all in good humour. After the dust settled The Grapes were again worthy champions and Born Winners the unlucky runners up. Would just like to thank a few people who help me run this years league and without them this league just wouldn't happen, Geoff Moxon (The Money Man), Paul Leah (Ashton Legend with the leaf blower), John Blezard (The Green Guru ) who has to be said keeps the green playable and the green was in the best condition for weeks yesterday, Gill Sutton (Fixtures Sec), Steve Foster (Stand In Money Man) and all the bar staff who keep all fed and watered I THANK YOU

Not long now. And who won't need some early season practice, whilst having a bit of fun.

This season's Charity Game is on Easter Monday, 6th April. There's a change of venue as Glossop BC have kindly offered the use of their green. The format this year is a bit different too. There will still be two teams, Mermaids Men (and ladies) against Smarty's Barmy Army, playing for the trophy, but it will be pairs, over 9 ends and hopefully everyone will get 3 games, with the top pair on each team fighting out a final.

As usual, everyone is welcome and anyone who wants a game will get one. All we ask is £5 per player, with the money going to the charity, which has yet to be decided.
If you have any suggestions let us know. We usually go for a charity or good cause that is personal to someone who might attend the event.
There will be other fun events on the day and a monster raffle. If anyone would like to donate a prize, let us know on the forum , via the website email address or the event on Facebook.

Also if anyone has any good ideas for the day or other ways of increasing the fund let us know. I think last year everyone raised almost £1000.
