To restart the Monthly mug chain, Mr. Vishal Shah came forward to sponsor yet another Monthly Mug to be played on 26th August 2017.

We had a good number of 14 Bowlers participating in the Mug.

Skip Mrs. Kusum Patel with Lead Mrs Shobha Bij won the Mug with a super score of 22 shots against 13 shots of Skip Mr Vishal Shah with Lead Dr S Dhillon.
