Durham on tour 2023

DIBC on Tour 2023

A party of 34 from Durham IBC have just returned from a four day tour of Scotland, having received a warm welcome from all our hosts Glasgow IBC; Inverclyde IBC; West of Scotland IBC and Coatbridge IBC, who also provided pre and post match hospitality.

Whilst we did not achieve any overall match victories, we did get better as the tour progressed and there were some notable and hard fought individual team wins at each venue.

The hotel (The Golden Jubilee) on the outskirts of Glasgow was first class and we entertained ourselves with quizzes (thanks Liz), cards, games and good company.

Chris – our coach driver (I musn’t say “bus”) was brilliant and also very skilled at getting us through some very narrow gaps at all the venues. (we did all breath in at these points – to help him out!)

Any stories about padlocks, missing shoes, clocks going forward and weird raffle prizes are for others to tell !!

So thanks must go to Rae for organising it all on our behalf; and to Marian and her Presidential team for liaising with our hosts upon our arrival and delivering the ‘team – talks’ we needed.

A good time was had by all.
