 7 June 2008  Jimmy Hoad Memorial Inv.Triples    Sponsored: Hoad Bulk Services
 Club member Jimmy Hoad died in March of this year ( see video tribute ) and it was agreed that his son's sponsored triples tournament would be renamed in memory of his Dad. It was lovely to see Jimmy's son Stewart, his daughter Glenda and their families all at this inaugural tournament which was superbly supported by friends and bowlers from within and outwith the area.

Hoad Bulk Services this year  sponsored 4 teams each kitted out with the sponsor's logo on their shirts.
Alongside the 4 triples are President Ian Skillen, Stewart Hoad, his sister Glenda and son Ewan

Once again we were delighted to have sponsorship from Hoad Bulk Services and doubly delighted when owner Stewart Hoad came along with a feast of raffle prizes and was also on hand to present the prize money.
A scorcher of a day added to the atmosphere created by the sixty players and their supporters.
After five games the four section winners gave us semi-finals followed by a thrilling final played between Burnbank Hamilton BC and Halfway BC. The game was scored even playing the last end and was won by Burnbank Hamilton with the very last bowl. A fabulous day out and a great tribute to our old friend and fellow bowler Jimmy Hoad.
