The Wiltshire Open Charity Fours was played out at the North Wiltshire IBC, Chippenham last weekend. There were 48 entries divided up into groups of six teams. Entries from across the south, south-east and south-west were received. In fact there was even a short reserve list.
The first four teams won all their games to be on 10 points. The winners were Templecombe 2 (skipped by Jim Mannell) - (won 27 - of 35 ends and with a shot difference of +43); second were Holmans (skip - Peter Hore) from Camborne in Cornwall (23 ends and +38 shots); third were East Hanningfield - last year's winners - (skip - Steve Killington) - 22 ends and +30; fourth - Gloucester Knights (skip - Ryan Knght) with 19 ends and +26 shots.
The next six teams won 4 of their 5 games to be on 8 points. Crudwell, augmented by Newlyn Trinity's Nigel Nicholls were fifth with 26 ends won and +56 shots; sixth - Wootton Hall (skip - Tony Wheeler) - 23 ends and +35; seventh - Westbury Blue Circle (skip Dane Rose) - 23 ends and +27; eigth - Templecombe 1 (skip - Alan Berry) - 22 ends and +21; ninth - Middlezoy (skip - Linda Glover) - 23 ends and +17 and tenth - Hazelbury Bryam (Dorset - skip Barry Whitburn - 22 ends and +14.
Westbury Blue Circle became the first team to win the highest placed all Wiltshire team prize. The Crudwell team had a hot shot during the day.
The aim of the day besides having an enjoyable bowling day was to raise money for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance. After a preliminary balance , it would seem that the sum of £1250 was raised.
Thanks to all the volunteers who made the day so successful.
