Chris Howard wins Sherlock Cup 2008
Tenth Annual Sherlock Cup
On Saturday 12th July 2008, the tenth annual charity competition for the 'Sherlock' cup named in memory of Richard Bevan was held at Meole. As usual there was an excellent entry made up of 18 invited guests and 66 club members, the bowling started at 10.30 in the morning and although the weather was a mixture of sun and showers it did not spoil the proceedings. The excellent final finished at 8.40p m and was between Tony Hotchkiss (Meole) and Chris Howard (P O W Hotel) who bowled with Sherlock in their youth at the 'Prince'. It was a close final probably the closest ever and was won by a very emotional Chris Howard the scoreline being 21- 20.
The Semi finals were between Chris Howard 21 and Tony Poole 17 and Tony Hotchkiss 21, Graham Dulson 12. The youngster Dan Williams won the Youth prize and Mary Woodcock was the best lady on the day.
Tudor and Val and their team of helpers worked tirelessly all day raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis and Shrewsbury Breathing Club; raffles & quizzes were run with prizes donated by supporters, books and plants were sold and there was food available most of the day to keep the people well fed!
Tudor & Val thanked everyone for their support and singled out Adie Jennings who ran the competion on the day due to the abscence of Wiggy who had to play cricket, though he got sponsorship from his team mates for about £200. At the presentation, Wiggy said that as long as the bowlers were happy to enter they would continue to run the competition.
Watch this space for the total proceeds which are being counted whilst this is being written!
