Ottery St Mary held their annual Captain’s Day on the final day of May, writes Michael Smith.
This year it fell to club captain Sharon Kenny to provide the entertainment, something she did with great distinction.
With the weather being kind, three rinks and three triples, a total of 42 players, took to the green to enjoy a fine afternoon’s bowling, this after Barbara Lee had won the pre-match ‘spider’ and a bottle of scotch donated by the lady captain.
The best winning score was achieved by Margaret Shiel, Val Kille and skip Brian Luscombe (16-11). Various prizes were presented by Sharon to the team and other members who had performed well on the day!
All members present were also given a momento to mark the clubs’ 25 Year Anniversary, in the form of an engraved silver key ring.

Sharon also provided a sumptuous hot and cold buffet which was enjoyed by 32 members. Men’s captain Ray Luscombe and chairman Gerry Beighton closed the proceedings thanking Sharon for all her hard work, not just on the day, but throughout the year.
As is normal at this event profits are donated to the Captain’s Charity, and this year a magnificent £230 will be donated to the MIND charity, which helps those with mental health issues.
