The President of the E.B.A. sent his greetings to the Club:

"I send the heartiest congratulations to the Potters Bar Bowls Club on the occasion of its 75th Anniversary. A birthday is always a cause for celebration and I know that it is the intention of your President and Officers that you celebrate in style. Matches are already arranged between the EBA, the EWBA, Hertfordshire and St. Albans & District. I know everyone will do their utmost to ensure these are enjoyed to the full.

It is a great credit to both existing Members and those who have gone before that your Club should be active after so many years. It is also creditable that the current administration is using modern technology to help promote our sport. Whilst accepting that we preserve all that is good of our tradition and history we must, at the same time, look forward and see what changes are necessary to keep us abreast of what future bowlers will expect.

All my good wishes for a memorable 2004 and I look forward to being with you on May 13th and participating in your celebrations".

Ian Morrill. President, E.B.A.
