Are you interested in attending a ‘Markers Course’

There is far more to marking than just standing at one end of the rink and changing the scores after each end.  If you would like to learn about the responsibilities of a marker and how to do the job properly Bowls Devon will be running courses which members can attend.  Please see the club notice board and place your name on the list.  If there is sufficient interest from O.S.B.C. members, a date and venue will be arranged.

Glorious Opening Day

Members gather for the opening ceremony

 We could not have wished for a better day to open the new outdoor season.  As is tradition, Okehampton Mayor councillor Jan Goffey performed the bowling of the silver jack and first bowl to get proceedings underway.  President Brian and Captain Roger were on hand to ensure the smooth running of the ceremony.  Members then enjoyed a superb afternoon of bowling followed by a cream tea provided by our magnificent kitchen ladies.  What a way to start the season, let us hope the weather is always this kind to us.

Thank you Ladies

Ladies Captain Viv and the whole club wish to express

our thanks to the ladies who did such a splendid job of

cleaning the clubhouse in readiness for the new season.

What would we do without you !!!
