Inaugral Flower Bowl Novice Bonspiel Congratulations to team Walton
The Team of Peter, Grigor, Gwen and Graham came top of the pile after winning all 4 games in the bonspiel.
Over the weekend 8 teams of players who have less that 2 years Curling experience took to the Ice. The 6 Preston Teams were joined by Team Glazier (Wales) and Team Miles (South of England Curling Club)
The bonspiel was a great success for all Preston Curlers with the top 4 teams all coming from the Club. The majority of Prestons players have only been curling 12 months so this was a real bonus for the club.
The whole weekend was a great success and the Preston players are already looking to next years event.
A big thank you goes to the Flower Bowl and Barton Grange Hotel staff for putting on a fantastic event.
Jim Cleans up in the Summer Leagues.
Players will be lining up to be in Jim Aitkens team this winter as his teams came out top in both the Monday night and Thursday morning leagues.
Congratulations to all those winners and also to those who took part.
Inaugural Flower Bowl Bonspiel – WINNERS!!!
Congratulations to Team Topping on Winning the First open Bonspiel to be held by the Flower Bowl.
Team Topping came top out of the 10 teams competing this weekend. A weekend which saw teams from Preston, London, Scotland, Wales and even the USA all play to win but in the true spirit of Curling.
A thrilling finale to the weekend saw 3 teams all on 3 wins and 1 loss. Which meant it came down to Ends. Team Topping coming out on top by 3 ends.
The weekend hosted by the Flower Bowl was superbly run by the staff. The Saturday night dinner and entertainment was a fantastic event on its own. Great food, great company and as ever great dancing with Tommy Campbell leading the way.
Congratulations also to Team Rees (Second Place) and Team Campbell (Third).
The Flower Bowl will be hosting this event again next year and it will only get bigger and better.
