Navenby Bowls Festival 2017 – Sponsored by:
Day One of the festival started in grey overcast weather conditions and unfortunately got worse with a couple of pretty heavy showers during the morning group stages. Fortunately the weather then started to pick up and we were left with a pleasant afternoon.
The group stages on the whole were a fairly tight affair with very few complete blow outs and most matches were reasonably close. On a Local note for Navenby Bowls Club, we had 2 members make it through into the last 16 Richard Jutsum & David Hall. Unfortunately for us they did not progress any further.
The Quarter Finals and Semi Finals saw a mixture of familiar faces and new blood and some very good and tight bowling, a couple of matches going to extra ends to decide the result.
The final was a again a good match watched by a sizeable crowd who had stopped on to watch.
