The "Green"

Two great guys, two very very sad announcements



Retirement of a "couple" of Greenkeepers at end of the summer season 2018

Sadly we announce that Sandra and Rod Smale have decided to concentrate on cutting their own grass at home after four years at PBBC.

The Management Committee, Green Team and all members of PBBC are very grateful for the tremendous contribution that Sandra and Rod have made in keeping our bowling green surface in tip top condition. We wish them both well in their retirement.

In 2017 they were awarded the coverted IOG Industry Award "Greenkeeper/Team" of the year.

Positive week for Bar

Two Bar teams eased through to the Semi Finals of the Stockman Winser Trophy for the second year in succession. Richard Pearce and David Salmon joined with Janice Gower and Diane Berry to inflict defeat on Phil Russell’s Welwyn District team. After being behind until the 18th  end, they forged ahead and held on to win 23-18. On an adjacent rink, their fellow club members, Terry Barker, Barry Woodman, Rita Hamshere and Anita Bowman were ahead throughout and finished 23-12 winners.

Earlier in the week, Bar beat Bury Lodge to move through to the quarter finals of the Prentice Cup.
At home, Bar were defeated 17-18, but need not have worried, as the away team overwhelmed their opponents to win 38-4.

Chris Budden and Steve Jewell were drawn against each other in the District singles and provided watching members with a very close game.
21 points was the total and at 18 all, Chris won the next end by the 3 points he required.  

In the District Officers Singles, Di Jewell lost to 
J Metcalfe of Townsend.

In the District 4’s, the Bar team of Bowman, Hamshere, Southwell and White beat Shire Park away 22-17 and the District Triples League teams also won home and away against Shire Park.

Bar played Arnos in the Henry Rose Cup and won both home and away matches. The District Triples League teams played Shire Park on a similar basis and also won both matches. However, as Vet’s league leaders, Bar travelled to bottom club Enfield, and on a challenging Green, fell to a shock defeat, winning only one rink of three and losing overall 48-51.

In the Herts County League against Clarence Park, Bar managed to draw one rink but lost on the second. Friendlies were played away at Whithern where Bar lost on all 5 rinks, and at home against Hertford Castle who showed no mercy, inflicting
4-1 defeat on Bar.
