Opening Day 2015
On a lovely sunny afternoon the Isle of Man Flat Green Bowling Club, Onchan held their official opening ceremony on Saturday 18th April. The rolling of the first bowl was performed by Derek Crellin Chairman Onchan Commissioners accompanied by Commissioners Robin Turton and Kathryn Williams.
There was a good turnout from members current and new and all present were welcomed by Club President Eric Maddocks. After a fun spider game in which a Jack is placed in the centre of the green and members from a circle around the green, the bowl delivered closest to the Jack is the winner. New member Gail Lee was the lucky wnner and presented with a prize by Derek Crellin. This fun event was followed by some good games of bowls.
With the season getting off to a good start , membership increasing, and the condition of the green greatly improved we look forward to a successful bowling season in 2015.
The club would also like to thank Phil Sutton and his team who have worked hard over the winter to improve the condition of the green.
