ON A bright sunny morning the Suffolk (EBA) County President, Dennis Taylor, opened the 72nd Felixstowe Open Bowls Tournament and brought applause form the onlookers by bowling a wood straight on to the jack.

The tournament commenced with the ladies singles and last year's winner Mary Saunders from Bramford Bowls Club made it through to the fourth round where she will play Wendy James of Felixstowe Bowls Club. Last years runner-up Margaret Coles had a titanic struggle against 1988 runner-up Andrea Dickinson from Brantham but finally won 21-19.
