Re: The famous Mathias blog

Although the Old Bowls Codger had stated that he wouldn't be blogging again until his term of office as the WCGBA President elect was over, he couldn't let this day pass without informing you of the sad news that an old friend who has been an integral part of my blogs since they commenced in 2015 ha...

Re: Mike Ward

Well at 12.00 pm today, over 140 people came to the Bangor Crematorium to say their goodbyes to Michael ( Mike ) Ward, who sadly left us on the 17th October 2018, aged 76. It was pleasing also to see that all his bowling friends at the Benllech Bowling Club adhered to Mike's wishes and had worn thei...

"The Great Orm"

Well the clock has struck midnight, so can I be the first to wish the "Big Brother" of the fantastic North Wales Bowling Website, Mike Ormond, a very Happy 80th Birthday for today the 2nd November 2018. I believe Mike fell in love with Crown Green Bowling in the early 80's when he sent out his first...

Re: Mon Menai AGM

Just for clarification 're the Hon Treasurers report, J G and I felt it best not to print the actual credit balance in the Mon Menai CGBA account. Hence the reason only the Petty Cash amount is shown.

Re: Mike Ward

Yes further to Mike and Barry's kind comments, I had a phone call very early this morning from Gwyn Owen at the Benllech Bowling Club, to say that sadly Mike Ward had passed away on the evening of the 17th October 2018, after his short, but courageously born fight, against a very cruel illness. Mike...

Re: The famous Mathias blog

Sadly Ormi, the "Famous Mathias Blog" will at least until 2020 and perhaps beyond be no more. But a more down to earth and much less tongue in cheek blog, possibly entitled "The Day in the Life of the President", is already circulating around in my little grey cells.
