Following the dinner presentations were made to the various winners of the 2015 club competitions by the President Tony Lloyd and his wife Audrey.

Mr. Doody explained that there were fewer cups and trophies to be presented this year due to lack of support in some of the competitions from bowling members. He hoped that there would be a greater participation by members in next year’s competions
