Adur Top Team Competition 2023
SBC had a good representation at this year's event, entering in the mens and ladies pairs, the mixed and open triples and the rinks competitions. SBC won the ladies pairs (Brenda Page and Barbara Velardo), were runners-up in the mens pairs (Dave Hoggen and Bob Page). With runners-up finishes in other groups, this led to Shoreham winning the overall trophy. Well done and thanks to everyone that organised and took part.
90th Birthday Celebration 2023
The 10th September 2023 saw the celebration of 90 years since the Shoreham Bowling Club was set up. Past members and invited guests met to celebrate the occasion, and current members played a friendly match against a Sussex county team. The afternoon "rolled-off" with a Spider, the entry fees going to a charity of the County Presidents choosing. The afternoon was rounded off with a birthday buffet for all who attended.

Friar Tuck 2023
Twenty members competed in this year's Friar Tuck Drawn Pairs. John McMurren organised the event and Sue Warley provided a good lunch, helped by Jane. Even the weather co-operated (sort of). It was won by Ann Stainsby & Trevor Langrish with Sue Warley & Dave Goodman the runners-up.
Candlelit Bowls 2023
This event gathered a hardy group of bowlers to play a short match at the SBC club-house. Starting at dusk on the 29th September and concluding on the darkness of 8 o'clock, it was surprising how good (or not so good) some people are at to bowling in the dark. Given the full moon, everyone was very well behaved and no light aircraft mistook the green for Shoreham Airport. Top rink was Dave Goodman's team, who were awarded with Cornetto's for their efforts. Lots of laughter and shining of torches with a few nibbles afterwards. Thanks go to Brenda and crew for the organisation.
Presentation Dinner 2023
This year Dave Page and Dave Goodman made the presentations along with our guest Mark Broadway (Sussex County Chairman) who was accompanied by his wife Barbara.
