Welcome to BB&DBA
When I first began bowling for the BB&DBA, approximately 5 years ago, I never imagined that I would be delegated for President. It is an absolute honour.
Never before have I taken up such a prestigious role. My only, if at all similar position, was that of Secretary of Petts Wood Bowling Club which I held for 3 years. It’s going to be a massive challenge but one that I am looking forward to.
My thanks go to the Tour Committee for their continued help in organizing our forthcoming tour to Sidmouth in July. Let’s hope it’s a memorable one with lots of sunshine and enjoyable bowling. We have new bowlers joining the Tour but I’m sure you will give them a big welcome.
The venue for our 2020 Tour was Sidmouth and I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am that The Royal York & Faulkner Hotel are able to accommodate us this year. I’m hoping that it will be a memorable Tour for everyone.
As with all Associations, an enormous amount of work takes place behind the scenes and my thanks also go to our Management Committee. We must say a huge welcome to Eunice Pain who will be our President for the 2022/23
I am a member of a Club, Optara, and many months ago, went on a day trip to the RNLI lifeboat station at the Embankment. It was absolutely amazing and because of that trip it convinced me that the RNLI will be my
chosen charity for the 2021/22 season.
Finally, may I take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the members of the BB&DBA for your continued support. You are the people that make our Association such a success and I will do my utmost to ensure that
your 2021/22 season will be an enjoyable one.
2020/21 has been a difficult time for us all but let’s hope for a much brighter 2021/22
