Jean Avey Trophy

Following a very successful and well attended quiz night organised by John Maxwell recently, Douglas Park Bowling Club on Saturday 18th September 2010 witnessed another new addition to its calendar with the inaugural game for the Jean Avey Trophy.  Jean was a well respected long time member and Past President of Douglas Park Bowling Club.

Held in warm sunny conditions, the green and its surroundings were in fine order for the event, and following a warm welcome to all members by President Robert Keenan the game got under way under the watchful eye of Gents Match secretary George Ireland and Ladies Match Secretary Ray Bennie.  The eventual winners of the Jean Avey Trophy were Anna Alexander, Vice President Jack Peacock, Sheila Maxwell and Maurice White who were presented with their very handsome cup by Jean's sister Agnes Keith.  The cup was sponsored by Jean's son Scott to whom the club is very grateful.

May Dolan is to be thanked for organising an excellent buffet after the game ably supported by Davy Cameron in the bar.  A superb day was had by all a truly fitting end to our bowling calendar.  Closing day is Saturday 25th September.
