Ludlow Castle Open on Saturday 17th September.A full quota of 64 entrants took to the beautifully prepared green on what was a beautiful day for those travelling from all over the country for the £2000 prize pot!! Some brilliant bowling made intriguing veiwing with some tasty early round contests! Last years final was repeated this year in the last 16 but with Mark Burdett coming out the victor over Kiah Roberts this time round. Viv Cooper was the furthest lady making it to the quarter finals and earning £125 in the process. This year Mark Burdett went on to take a well deserved victory and the £600 first prize improving on his last years runners up position. He was pushed very close by Adam Dovey and Mark Rogers in the closing rounds. Thanks was given to all those that had helped run the event on the day and special mention was given to the sponsors, David Robert Davies at Ashvale construction, Frank Alviti at McConnells, Nicki Griffiths (steve) at Ludlow Skip Hire and Nick Beard from Dairy Diagnosis, which helped us to provide the superb prize money on offer. It was a great day and hope to see you all again next year!!
