Our Annual Big Bowl!
Thursday 21st March saw the return of bowling. The Big Bowl , held in NamcoFunscape, saw 7 teams from business vie to be the winners, and to take home the Wooden Spoon Award for being great competitors and sports. Two games of bowling were broken by the Blind Bowl competition. One member of each team, nominated, or was that dobbed in by colleagues wore the blindfold and sent one bowl down their lane. Until the last competitor we had a tie and were staring down a ‘Bowl Off’. Step forward Ross from SOS IT. Cool and confident, he hit a strike and sent the skittles scattering. Amazed colleagues suggested he keep the blindfold on….Those who scored strikes were encouraged to celebrate by wearing the Turkey Hat, and we have the pictures to prove it. There was a lot of good natured rivalry, and some amazing scores. Fran from Brewin Dolphin was the highest scoring girl and Richard from Royal IHC the highest scoring boy. Royal IHC won a very competitive evening, winners taking home Golden Pins.
All of the prizes in the raffle were donations, including the white chocolate lamb.
We raised just short of £850, which was great.
A huge thanks to everyone who came along, thank you for being such great sports, and to Namco for supporting us and looking after us so well, and thanks to those who donated the prizes in the raffle…. Keep an eye out for a ‘Save the Date’ for next year… and get you names down to help us do even better in 2020.
