A Message From the LDBSA Competitions Secretary, Phil Parkin

The Bob Gillard Shootout - Saturday 2nd July @ Lillington Club - Finals Week

"I was contemplating running this event from the start of the season and as time throughout the season ran on and on I thought it was just going to be another idea that just went on the wayside. I stuck at it to get this event organised and Iím so glad I did in memory for such an amazing gentleman to the league, Bob Gillard! After all the organising for this, I didnít know whether I would be well enough to turn up and organise it during the day, but thankfully I was able to.

Iíd like to thank James Gillard for attending the event and taking part to represent his Dad. Ian Wagstaff for refereeing some of the games (when he was there to referee all 🤣), I had to take over bless him as he needed a rest!! Mark Quinton for doing the MC, doing a great job as he always does. Last, but not least, Josh Boyce for streaming and doing the scoring for the event, which was fantastic!!

Another thank you to Hazel Parkin for putting on a great spread of food and going out of her way to do it. She asked me to say a few words on behalf of her, thanking the committee of the LDBSA for the flowers that were presented to her, she loved them!!

One more thank you those who donated prizes for the blackout card that was ran during the day. First is to Robbie Watson for the main prize of 2 tickets to the Snooker Shootout in January which Mike Hopkins won. Also to Paul Price who donated a signed framed snooker photo which was won by Ben Deller. Terry Parkin won the 3rd and final prize of 2 bottles of wine & a box of chocolates. From the blackout card alone, we raised over £130 for Myton Hospice which is a great effort from everyone who had a go so thank you!!

Full draw and results will posted up soon, but commiserations to the Semi Finalists Phil Parkin & Tony Baylis and also to a great run and Runner-Up Danny Trinder. A massive congratulations to our 2022 Bob Gillard Snooker Shootout Champion, Ben Deller!

A great event, that was played in amazing spirit throughout and thatís itÖ
Over and out, until the next shootout next year. Thank you everyone who entered and enjoyed the day!

Kind regards,
Phil"
