NWAS bowl away post-exam worries
Six teams, representing most of the major consultancy firms in the North West, battled it out to be crowned the first NWAS annual bowling champions. Buck Consultants' team 'Livin' on a Spare' got off to a flying start in the first round, with one bowler in particular enthusiastically hurling the ball down the lanes at almost warp speed.
Snapping at their heels for the top average score were Towers Watson, aka 'Spare Me', whose score consistency within the team was impressive (indicating that perhaps minimum score variance should have been taken into account ).
New kids on the bowling block Mitchell Consulting trailed woefully behind in last place, which the team's management blames on a cunning plot of sabotage. Indeed, one adopted member attempted to bowl in sunglasses after 'forgetting' his usual bifocals.
At the other end of the ability spectrum, one member in team Coop ('I can't believe it's not gutter') put on a fantastic display, claiming the top individual score of the evening of over 160.
Team Mercer (Gutter Fingers) took home the imaginary trophy
of 'Most supportive team' with their vocal cheerleading routine.
Lastly, team Incredibowls (PwC) put out consistently good efforts in both rounds, despite their lane being rendered out of action for some time - this however did not dampen their fighting spirit as they bought a round of drinks and observed tactics elsewhere.
Well done to the Towers team 'Spare Me', who took home the 2015 NWAS trophies following an outstanding second round.
