Online Entry System & Festival Helpers

The online entry system for opens is being trialled for the first time, initially using the Festival Helpers Competition and hopefully we will enable this for as many competitions as possible next season.

I encourage anyone wanting to play in this competition to use the online form and any feedback is welcome direct to compsec@iombowls.com.

Remember to enter the Festival Helpers you must have helped during the June or September festival in 2015.

The system will allow you to enter an open competition directly from the website.

  • Goto the opens list or open page and click the green “Enter” button
  • You can enter yourself or a number of players.
  • When you complete the entry you fill out the players being entered into the competition and a contact name/email
  • As soon as the entry is submitted an email is sent to the club and to the contact entered on the form to confirm the entry
  • The contact would also be used if the club wished to notify start times for any of the entered players.
  • There is a security code field which must be completed, simply type the letters/numbers you see in the image

Essie Quayle ladies’ singles

Strong winds and a fast green made for difficult conditions for the 32 ladies who contested the Essie Quayle singles at Peel on Saturday 5 September. Although the sun shone it became very cold for the latter stages of the competition, reducing the number of spectators staying to the end.

Quarter-finals: Kim Hargraves 21, Mary Kinrade 18; Margaret Tasker 21, Shirley Corrin 16; Joyce Kelly 21, Janet Monk 19; Ann Maddrell 21, Maureen Payne 16

Semi-finals: Kim Hargraves 21, Margaret Tasker 17; Joyce Kelly 21, Ann Maddrell 16

In the final the early ends were shared to make the players level at 9-9. Joyce won the next 5 ends to lead 16-9. Although play was level after that point Kim was unable to make inroads into Joyce’s lead, the peel player coming through to win 21-14.

The presentation was made by club captain Heather Horsburgh who thanked the green keeper and everyone who had helped with the smooth running of the afternoon.
