A tribute to our friend Steve Everitt.


We very much miss the afternoon pot games we used to have with Steve Everitt - Chris Buck - and Lee Cocker. As well as the friendly play with Frank Stander - Malcolm Glover - and Alan Kersey.

A good entry for this event and slick organisation by Lee Cocker - Natalie Hart - with able assistance from Tracy Wallace.

Nearly eighty players played five games qualifying in two squads and vied for top four pinfall in both scratch and handicap scores.

This was being played on Kegel Abbey Road Pattern.

The final four scratch players were Steve Thornton 1210 - Lee Cocker 1182 - Rob Thurlby 1159 and Barry Myhill 1147. 

High games included Lee Cocker 289 and Barry Myhill 287.

The fifth place to miss out on the scratch final after others moved into the handicap division was Scott Cleaver 1091.

In the Handicap division the finalists were Gemma Tsappis 1133 - Matt Forsyth 1128 - Tracy Wallace 1125 - and Mick Anthony 1118. Mick Anthony could not be there for the final and his place was taken by Carl Vanderhook 1109.

This made the handicap fifth place to again be Scott Cleaver 1101.

Then four played and low scorer was dropped. Three played again and low scorer dropped.

Leaving the scratch final to Lee Cocker and Barry Myhill. Won by a strike out finish by Lee Cocker 235 - Barry Myhill 224.

And the Handicap final to Tracey Wallace and Matt Forsyth. They tied the first game on a good 200 plus score. Then played another decisive game and Matt Forsyth struck out to win 208 to Tracy Wallace 205.

A great day with lots of current friends and bowlers and a number of old bowlers turning up to take part or spectate whilst meeting up with old and new friends.


We all look forward to playing this tournament again next year.
