David Maugham won the Bowdon June Advanced Weekend

[<<] [>>] by Ian Lines at Bowdon Croquet Club
1 June 2008 (AC)

The 2008 Bowdon June Advanced Weekend was won by David Maugham, who beat Ian Lines in the final (+26tp, +16tp, -26tp, +12tpo). The consolation Egyptian Event was won by Colin Irwin. Congratulations also to David Walters for completing his first triple peel and gaining his CA Gold Award.

The excellent Bowdon lawns were quite slow and easy at about 10 plummers in the damp conditions, although hoops were set reasonably firmly to 1/32nd. Various photos can (shortly) be found on the Bowdon web site at

The Peterson Trophy was presented to David by North West Federation Chairman Barry Keen, and thanks were recorded to John Saxby and his team for the magnificent catering, and to all those involved in preparing and setting the lawns.
