THERE'S a prize fund of PS705 on offer in the Griffin Classic on Sunday.
There are 37 entries for the big event at the Colne Valley winter bowling venue, with Paul Manning of P&A Motors the sponsor.
The winner will collect over PS200, so competition is sure to be fierce (9am, five jacks on the green).
And that's especially so as the two latest Sixteen winners - Terry Brook and Andrew Cairns - meet in the first round.
Brook enjoyed a second win of the season, taking out a couple of Crosland Moor teammates along the way in Gary Siswick in the second round and Liam Fallas, 21-8, in the final.
