POTTERS Bar Bowls Club launched their 2009 season on a bright sunny, spring day that reflected the good mood of the 90 members present.

The players were welcomed to a new season's bowling with the traditional President Match.

On Saturday more than 90 members of the club were welcomed by president Roy Tansey.

The match, involving 71 players, was won by the president's team playing against the team of men's captain Ken Huntley and ladies' captain Beryl Burbridge by 147 to 116 shots.

The club's first match is against local outfit Harperbury tomorrow (Wednesday, April 22).

That fixture starts a very busy five months of competitive bowling for the members.

Ahead of the Harperbury encounter, the club held the first of four open days on Sunday and entertained 12 newcomers on the green.

The opening day also saw the awarding of life membership to Les Norman.

This was in recognition of his long and dedicated service to the club.

Les (pictured above left) is a former Potters Bar BC president and has served as an officer of the club over many years.

The presentation of the award was warmly welcomed by the members.
