Max Dare Memorial Trophy
Bridport Indoor Bowls Club opened up their Autumn friendly's programme in 2022 with the annual Max Dare Memorial Charity Trophy match against the Dorset County side. The event raised over £300 for the Motor Neurone Trust.
The match swung one way then the other with the three games resulting in a 79 - 79 draw. This left a one rink shoot-out between John Burwood's four from Bridport and the County's Paul Tidby's four to decide the match.
Burwood looked to have played the perfect wood to win it but, agonizingly, it ran two inches too far to leave the County side the victors by one shot.
Mike Smith won the spider and sportingly donated the bottle of whisky for auction which raised an additional £25 for the Charity.
