Pembroke Dock Bowling Club’s Open Week was once again a resounding success and well organised by Gerard Thomas.

It was a challenge because of the adverse weather conditions experienced through out the week. All bowlers adjusted to the weather conditions to make an excellent week of bowling. The groundsmen must be congratulated in maintaining the green in tiptop condition and were praised by visiting bowlers and club members alike for the sterling work.

The ladies of Pembroke Dock Bowling Club once again excelled in the catering which is second to none within the bowling fraternity.

This was the 67th consecutive Open Week held by the club, with the first commencing in June 1945. The two main cups are the Alfred Phillips Bowl and the Sudbury Bowl. This year saw the introduction of a mixed pairs trophy played for by club members only, donated by Leslie Davies and Diana Davies, called the Les and Di Mixed Pairs Trophy.

Finals day was blessed with beautiful sunshine leading to exceptional bowling from all finalists. Ashley Hooper from Tenby Bowling Club played exceptionally well all week reaching the two main finals.

In the final of the Sudbury Bowl, Ashley Hooper of Tenby Bowling Club beat Trevor Harries of Haverfordwest Bowling Club, in a very closely contested match 21 - 19.

In the final of the Alfred Phillips Bowl, Nigel Davies of Whitland Bowling Club beat Ashley Hooper of Tenby Bowling Club in a nail biting game, going into the last end 20 all with Nigel getting the one shot he needed to win the game 21 - 20. The final of the new mixed pairs trophy also went to the last end with Gerard Thomas and Kay Cole of Pembroke Dock BC winning 14 - 13 against Diana Davies and Boyd Parry of Pembroke Dock BC.
