The third day, after a morning at the shops, members managed to play at two clubs in Droitwich. Monday, the last day, was time to pack and board the coach for home, stopping off to bowl at Weston super Mare, followed by a presentation dinner back at Brent Knoll.The winner of the Tour Shield was Margaret Shiel, with runner up Don Dalton, congratulations to both. Next year the club are off to Eastbourne.Tour fines, for every misdemeanor including being perfect, raised £150. was raised for Devon Air Ambulance.
