Hello 2019

Well another year is upon us so the web site has been cleaned down ready for this years events. What's to come ?

 

Well the AGM took place and the draws took place for this years competitions. I have updated the competitions page so you can all see who you are playing.

 

Green Opens

 

The Green is open on Monday 22nd for our first bowl up. On Saturday there is a working party from 1000-1200. As many helpers as possible would be nice. Both Indoors and out !

 

First Social Evening Tuesday 23rd April 

The Email From Paul Follows

 

I will be co-ordinating the event and hope you are all looking forward to our first Club fund raising event.

 

The evening will be starting at 5:00pm. For those members who would like to take part in the bowls competition could you please “check-in” with me by 4:30pm latest in the clubhouse to enable a prompt start to the evening.

 

I will be placing a notice for this event on our board in the clubhouse on Thursday 18th April. Please place your names on the list. It would also be a great help if you could Email me atrisebope@gmail.com to advise of your intention to play bowls, I will then have some idea of the numbers attending in advance. For those members without access to Email you can contact me on the number published in our club handbook.

 

As on previous occasions a donation of £1.00 from “all” participants is required and this should be placed in “THE BEAR” which is located in the clubhouse. An additional £1.00 for Green Fees has to be paid by all Associate members who wish to take part.

 

It would be much appreciated if you could all bring a plate of food to share with your

fellow bowlers after the game. There will be a raffle and any prize donations will be

gratefully accepted.

 

As on previous occasions I have ordered a warm, dry evening!

 

I look forward to seeing you all and I hope that we all have an enjoyable evening.

 

Regards

 

Paul Riseborough
