Dennis Scarr won the Bowdon B-Level Advanced Weekend, 16-17th September

[<<] [>>] by Ken Cooper at Bowdon
17th September 2017 (AC)

Ten entrants set off on Bowdon's B-Level Advanced Weekend, each one full of hope that this could be 'their year'. The weather looked promising & after a cloudy start all was well until late on Sunday. Alan Mayne & John Greatbanks put a huge amount of work into ensuring that the lawns were ready for play, despite the best efforts of the local magpies! Extra thanks to Alan for his early morning visits to remove the dew. There was a good standard of play with a few tense finishes.

The knockout final of best of three went all the way. Dennis Scarr prevailed -7T, +12, +19, with John Dawson being a very gracious loser. The event was excellently managed by Charles Harding, who won the Egyptian.

As ever the catering was superb and a good time was had by all.
