DISABILITY GAMES SCUNTHORPE previous     next

2 April 2017

On contacting our usual participants there was 13 positive responses to taking part in this year´s Disability Games run by Scunthorpe Rotary Club and others in District 1270 at The Pods in Scunthorpe. Sadly one of our members had been moved to live with a carer in Sutton on Sea but joined up Rotary was the order of the day and he was taken on board by Spilsby Rotary Club and was able to attend.

Rotarians from Lincoln were Malcolm and Sheila Webb and Malcolm Miller as well as Peter and Audrey Manton.

Our team had entered Archery, Rifle Shooting, Boccia, Kurling, Snooker and Table Tennis and Eddie in the wheelchair events.

The team did well in Archery with Joanne Brennan coming second over all. David Tolley had a high score but only if you counted one of his arrows which scored well in a neighbouring target. In the rifle shooting it was the straw safety bales that suffered most.

Some members went through the second and even third rounds of knock out events and David Tolley got through to the fourth round in Darts before being dismissed.



Tony, Peter and Malcolm.





Joanne Brennan and Eddie Scatcherd received awards as winner and runner-up respectively in the table tennis.



Clash of the Titans, two members of our team playing each other at darts, Eddie Scatcherd about to throw and David Tolley putting the flights back on his darts. David went through to the next round before being knocked out himself. Harold Bates (Mkt Rasen) is scoring.

Tony and daughter Jane.



Sally awaiting her turn.

Eddie was our only entrant in the wheelchair events and would not allow anyone to push him, saying that if he was thrown out it would be his own fault. He did not win anything but his efforts said everything about the resolve of our team. They seldom win events but they all enjoyed the day as did all the helpers.






The club meets on Mondays at
The County Assembly Rooms,
76 Bailgate, Lincoln.
