On the 4th September 2016 Thame Lions Club with Thame Bowls Club (Chairman Bill Giles of weather fame) organised the first ever event for Oxfordshire Blind Bowling Competition.

Thame mayor with Lions players... 24 contestants from bowls clubs around the area, all with varying degrees of sight impairment, took part.
 
The event was opened by the Mayor of Thame, Linda Emery and all contestants were presented with medals; sponsored by a member of the Bowls Club, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire Richard Venables.
 
The winners were Mary Pitman and Sarah Marshal and were presented with a plaque to recognise their win. Sarah is a member of the England Blind Bowling Team and will be playing in the International Competition in South Africa in March.
 
The uniform that the team is wearing was sponsored by Lions and the Lions logo is proudly displayed on the shoulder.

The money raised on the day equal to £2000 will be split equally between Blind Veterans and Calibre Audio Books
The Club President PDG Lion John Savell said that the event was considered a great success by all parties particularly the bowlers themselves.
 
Because of the success and the willingness of the Thame Bowls Club to support the event it is likely to become a yearly competition.

The committee consisted of Brain Dickety, Bill Giles OBE, Keith Wright, John Savell, Ken Bennell, Sandy Seckington, Roger Blackburn and Peter Carter; Ken and Sandy wore dual hats as members of Thame Bowls Club as well. Bill and Keith are from the Thame Bowls Club.
