The BusinessGiftUK.com team secured a superb silver anniversary present as it sprung a surprise by re-claiming the Central Lancashire Business Club Bowling Night crown for 2010 after a night of technical glitches at tenpin in Preston.
The 2005 and 2006 champions secured their third title in the ten pin bowling tournament after some high scoring from Nicola Derbyshire, Steve Ward and Mark Hutchinson – the latter’s impressive score of 152 (containing five strikes) in the first of two frames proving to be the evening’s overall highest score.
That, however, was countered by some low scoring from the rest of the team, and with earlier technical problems including a forced change of lane and the loss of several rounds of scoring in the second frame, it came as something of a surprise to the team to learn that they’d claimed the title when the scores were announced.
As ever, the key theme of the event is to bring local businesses together in a social surrounding, and this year’s contest certainly succeeded once again with ten local companies represented in the contest.
Pushing the eventual winners for the title was a combined Thomas Cole Solutions and Spring Board Events team, which finished second, whilst the Club Chairman’s team, made up of bowlers from Inspire Business Training, Swiftkleen and Euxton Lock Services & Signs came in third.
All the star performers in the tournament received prizes supplied by Ad-Options Ltd t/as BusinessGiftUK.com, which has been trading since 1985 and is celebrating its silver anniversary of trading in 2010.
