It’s been a long time coming but we were finally able to complete the Covid delayed 2020 Senior Grand Prix Great in Leisureplex Charlestown yesterday.
We would like to congratulate all the Seniors on making the Grand Prix, and congratulations to the winners.
Ladies Winners – Maeve O’Reilly (Handicap) and Anita Watts (Scratch)
Mens Winners – Jim Donagh (Handicap) and Tom Byrne (Scratch)
It was a long day but very exciting with some very close head-to-head matches and 3 of the 4 finals coming down to the last game, which was great to see.
Our thanks go to Grainne, Peter and the team in Leisureplex Charlestown for their support in planning the event, on the day and in working with us to make sure the oil pattern selected would play as expected, and it did, thanks also to Brian. This was the first event of the season where the overall scoring returned to what we would expect normally.
The event did run over time, which is something we need to factor in for future events, but as one senior bowler remarked – we don’t play as quick as the young guys!!!
As I’ve said, there were a few hiccups that were down to me, lessons to be learnt, but it’s only when one is hands on, do you see the work it takes to run the seniors without a full team support network.
Thankfully some Seniors have offered to help. Which is a great relief and we will be in contact with them shortly.
Our thanks go to Yvonne, Theresa, and Tom for the work they have put in over the years. They truly deserve our thanks and appreciation.
Final results for all sections are available on the ITBA Web / Senior tab.
Full Round Robin head-to-head match results will be included in the Senior Newsletter update to follow.
