The 2017 BCGBA funded bowls programmes highlighted once again what a fantastic sport we have.
All the events were claimed by first-time winners, who added their names to the lists of crown green champions.
On the Globegig Media YouTube channel the videos can be watched again. So far the videos have had over 31,000 views and record for posterity what an enjoyable sport we have.
Hopefully we can bring you similar enjoyment this year.

Game of the year?
We were lucky this year to have so many games to enjoy. Was this semi-final clash at the Fred.Olsen Champion of Champions the best of all though?
