BGL Group Peterborough County Challenge
Hosted by Cambridgeshire sponsored by the BGL Group
Today saw 13 teams of 5 person teams take to the lanes at AMF Peterborough bowl, the 13 teams that participated were from Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Norfolk and Staffordshire.
With Ladies, Juniors and Seniors getting 10 pins bonus per game and there also being bonus points available for each game it was always going to be an interesting day. As I ended up bowling, Kayla Knight and Michael Boddy took on scoring duties on the system I had set up ready for the event so they didn’t need to worry about sorting the bonus pins!
