From Dave Woods, EBF Secretary - Wilson Scorer 

I have received the funeral arrangements for Wilson. His funeral will take place on the 13th December at Newcastle West Road Crematorium at 1.30 pm, anyone wishing to attend is more than welcome.
Afterwards they are hoping to go to the Westerhope Excelsior Club for drinks and a bite to eat, again everyone is welcome to attend.
Family flowers only please but anyone wanting to make a donation they are collecting for Blood Bikes.



  National Outdoor Championship results

See "Skegness'19 Champions" for the 24 individual competitions and 6 team events 

See "Skegness'19 EBF" & "Skegness'19 EWBF" for full details


 "EWBF National President (2019) Carole and EBF National President Mick wish to thank their fellow Officers, Tournament Committee and members of the EBUF for an excellent National finals at Skegness this week.  Many difficult situations had to be managed in order for the tournament to run smoothly.  This was done with a lot of hard work, late nights and good spirit.”


If you book Skegness accommodation for next year, be aware that the start date is +5 from this year.

This is because Bank Hol Monday in 2020 is the 31st AND 2020 is a leap year

Finals week will be August 22nd to 29th 2020 


The wearing of shorts by men

It was passed at the 2018 AGM that tailored shorts (with EBF logo) may be worn, white in inter-county association matches and national championships, grey in other games. For the full dress regulations for men click on “Rules (2019)” in the Main Menu to the left and see rule 7.21. Shotbowl are the only EBF approved outlet. Here is the link to the relevant page of their website.
