The men started well this week by winning their  Griffin Cup match against Met Police at Met Police Bushey by 45 shots  to 31 shots. Then the Ladies did well with the triples team of Liz Baker, Gill Howells and Jill Griffin beating  a team from the Herts Ladies.  This was the first time this team had entered this competition and after a runaway start for the Berkhamsted ladies the Herts ladies made a gradual comeback but Berkhamsted managed to hold them off to secure a victory.  Continuing this success, Anne Furlong and Jackie Cormack fought a tight battle against a duo from Harpenden to go through to the quarter finals of the County pairs by a margin of 5 shots picked up on the last two ends.

At the weekend Berkhamsted had a friendly match at Hazells, where they lost by 110 shots to 61.  The top rink was Marion Maynard, Gary Fisher and Bill Howells.  Two new members, Paul and Jackie Healy played their first competitive match for the Club. Also at the weekend, Berkhamsted once again staged the Watford & District U18 Singles Championship with four of their own youngsters reaching the semi-finals after five round robin group matches. The two finalists Matt St John & Jamie Robertson played out a 10 end match with Jamie repeating his success of 2015. All the players received bowls accessories as part of the presentation ceremony kindly supplied by the tournament sponsor.

The Executive Committee have been considering changes to Competition formats over recent years and has now agreed to implement changes from 2014 Season. Some of these changes have been made possible with Bowls England starting its Championships a week later.

From 2014, ALL Competitions, Men’s and Ladies will be on Fixed Dates with ALL National Competitions now played in ‘Block Format’ right through to semi final stages. This will give the finalists of the Triples and Fours the opportunity to book accommodation at Leamington Spa much earlier than normal. County Competitions remain in the format of one round per week (see details below). All rounds up to and including the 5th Rounds will be played on a Home Draw basis. No Neutral Greens for the men.

National Championship Quarter Finals & Semi Finals for each competition will take place in the evenings on the dates allocated on nominated greens. For the semi finals both genders will play on the same green. County Competitions will take place on dates specified.

The County Finals Day will be on Sunday 27th July 2014 and ALL National Competition Finals, Men and Ladies, along with the Men’s County Competitions will be played. The Ladies will retain their Mini Finals Day for their County Competitions. This will take place on Thursday 21st August.

The only competition not shown in these Provisional Dates is the Ladies Top Club as we do not yet know the Bowls England Round Dates. These will be added once we know these.

Next years proposed dates for each round are pinned on the notice board down at the club and will be sent to all members who are on email by Lesley Brown
