Disability Games ~ Barnsley 2013

Thu 25th April 2013 at 12.00 am - 2.00 am

Disability Games held at Barnsley Metrodome with 23 contestants organised by Brigg

 

Another highly successful Rotary Disability Games took place at Barnsley Metrodome on Sunday 14th April 2013.  Brigg Rotary had 23 competing on the day in events that ranges from swimming and weight lifting, to darts, table tennis, kurling, snooker, rifle shooting, archery  and boccia.  Our team had some great achievements and success with a winners trophy for Karen Johnson in the Darts and Graham Darley receiving a special Endeavour Award for his efforts in the archery event.  They were lucky enough to have their awards presented by two British Paralympian atheletes. 

The event could not have been so smoothly run without the kind volunteers on the day and thanks go out to President Tony, Rotarians Steve H, Chris, Julie, Robert, Gaynor, Charles and help also kindly given by Roberta.  We were also joined by Rotarians Mel and Sandra Clark, Margaret Parrott, Mark Ding and John and Dorothy Fagge from the Rotary Club of Barton. 

The enjoyment of all of those who took part is evident from the smiles captured on the photos taken on the day. The event will be held in Barnsley again in 2014 before it arrives in Scunthorpe.
