Below is an email from Steve who is organising something in honour of Mel Evans MBE.
I am organising a 24 hour Bowlathon to take place on the Sat 28TH / 29th October at the Mobberley Victory Hall BC, Town Lane, Knutsford. WA16 7JQ. Commencing at 0800 on Saturday morning.
We are asking each county to provide their top 12 county bowlers to take part, plus 2 reserves. Basically a county team. This will give 4 matches every hour, 8 players per hour. We would ask all bowlers to acquire sponsorship of £50 (flexible) or more, (or the county could be the sponsor) to act as the entry fee. ALL proceeds will go the the Motor Neurone Research Trust that is being organised by Lynn Pritchard.
Although this is a 24 hour event, each player need only to commit to a one hour slot. Please ask your players to be open minded on this as not everyone can play at 1200 till 1300 on Saturday and some players will have to play under floodlights. If all goes to plan this will turn out to be an exhibition of the top 96 bowlers in the country and we will raise well deserved funds for this excellent charity.
I am sure at this early stage I will have forgotten something, please call Steve or mail him on 07883 003863 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have.
If anyone is wanting to take part in this then please contact Mick Jones on 07967 055250.
