We continue to receive bumper applications which have recently included Mick Gault OBE. Mick represented England at six Commonwealth Games in various shooting events winning an incredible 18 medals โ€“ nine of which were gold! Mickโ€™s Commonwealth achievement is a record for athletes in any sport, but can he gain 18 hot shot badges?… watch this space.

Irish Womenโ€™s Indoor Bowling Association president Wilma Adair is another winner, as is Kent president Neil Waters.

Eighty-nine-year-old Reg Martin claims his second hot shot badge in three years with his Carlton IBC colleagues, while Richard Cushen obtained his second hot shot of the season in a county fours match for Camberley IBC and with son Harry also achieved their county badges during the same match.

New bowlers Gina Parish, Karen Simpson and Geoff Hardwick, who have only been playing for a year at Bedford Borough BC, also join the Hot Shots Club.

The Bowls International Hot Shots Club is as popular as ever and famous throughout the bowls playing world.

It was launched more than 20 years ago to reward players achieving a maximum score on one end of a competitive match and remains as popular as ever.

Certificates recognising the feat and signed by 15 times world champion Tony Allcock OBE take pride of place in the clubs and homes of bowlers all over the globe.

Different coloured bowls stickers are also available to highlight the achievement of becoming a member of the worldโ€™s largest and most exclusive bowls club.

Apart from having your names recognised in print and featured on our website www.bowlsinternational.com, why not send in a picture as well of the successful pair, triple or four, along with some interesting and relevant details about your claim.

You can provide a few details on the entry form that is featured in this supplement and email your photos to hotshots@bowlsinternational.com

Happy bowling and good luck!
