Geoff Porte. Bowls Wiltshire Champion of Champions 2016

Our very own Geoff Porte beat Tom Pittuck 21-14 to become the 2016 men’s Champion of Champions at the Bowls Wiltshire Finals in Devizes on Saturday 10th September.

It was a remarkable achievement and our sincere congratulations go to Geoff on his superb win.

Pictured below is Geoff receiving his trophy from Peter Sanders, Bowls Wiltshire County President


Geoff will be presented with his trophy at the County Dinner in Melksham on Saturday 19th November and it would be fantastic if as many members as possible are there to support him.

There is an attendance sheet on the noticeboard in the Club with the menu choice for the evening. The cost is £20 per head, starting at 7.00pm.

The deadline for collecting names for this event is 20th October and, depending on numbers wishing to attend, we may be able to get subsidised travelling expenses.

So anyone wishing to share the celebrations with Geoff, please add your name to the list as quickly as possible.
