THE EVANS TROPHY NORTH V SOUTH TEAM CHALLENGE
SATURDAY 29TH AUGUST 2020
ST GEORGES BOWLING CLUB, TELFORD, SHROPSHIRE
Over the past few weeks several discussions have taken place in relation to the forthcoming Evans Trophy. The organising committee have deliberately maintained a silent watching brief in regard to the progress of the pandemic and the ability for social gatherings to resume by the end of August. It is now clear that social gatherings of the kind we propose will not be safe/permitted for the foreseeable future.
The health and safety of all players and spectators is of course of paramount importance. Of equal importance are the individual circumstances and personal choices of both players and spectators.
On a personal note unless the event can be what we envisage and what both our sport and Mel deserves, we as an organising committee are not prepared to stage it in 2020.
Therefore, the Evans Trophy North v South Team Challenge will take place on Saturday 28th August 2021 at St Georges Bowling Club in Shropshire. The format of the day’s bowling and Sports-persons Dinner will remain unchanged. Mel’s mantra was always to strive for perfection and if perfection was not possible then he would leave well alone.
The Evans Trophy will return in 2021 with the passion, drive and gusto that an event of this nature and the sport of Crown Green Bowls deserves.
Keep safe and well everyone.
