PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE 3 Thank you for electing me to be your President. I appreciate your confidence in me and will work with all my energy to maintain the high standards set by past Presidents. Bowling has been a great joy to me over the years. I hope to be able to communicate my love of the game and encourage participants young and old to find real joy in the sport whatever the level of play. It has saddened me to see the continued decline in membership numbers and I will make it a high priority during my tenure to attempt to halt this trend. My thanks go to Arthur Broadberry for arranging the 15 celebration matches for this season. An application form for these games can be found on the E.I.B.A. web site and we welcome new applicants as well as others who support the Association on a regular basis. Those who I do not meet at celebration matches I hope to see at Club and County games. I congratulate Mark Cohen on his appointment as E.I.B.A. Junior Vice President and we all wish him well. I know that Margaret Allen, our Senior Vice President, will be there to help both of us and I also wish her well. My thanks to Jenny McConnell and all the staff at headquarters who were most understanding during my period of immobility. I would like to thank our sponsors for their continued support and generosity. Many thanks must go to the clubs who avail their facilities to host National and International matches and to the selectors and competition secretaries who willingly give up their time, plus the umpires who travel to ensure these events go off smoothly. Lastly I am looking forward to the challenges the new season will bring and I hope you all have a successful and enjoyable year. Michael Andrew Banbury Cross EIBA Ltd President 2016/2017
