There is now a box in the Pavilion to put in Raffle Prizes for the Open Tournament on June 30th. Please add some goodies if you can. On the Social Events notice board you will find a list of food needs for the Tournament, if you can help, please do.
We now have 18 teams playing on the day, so it should be a wonderful occasion. Even if you are not playing, how about coming along to support not only the Bowls Club and the Players, but our chosen charity for the tournament "Demelza Hospice".
Bowls Drive - June 12th
The weather was kind, and we had 18 players doing their best over 18 ends. Everyone played well, but there had to be a winner. In this case it was our Chairman, John Eveleigh. Following the game we had a Fish and Chip supper for 40 starving punters, cooked at the green by "The Flying Fryer". After all that delicious fish, we really needed a pudding. The Trifle and Strawberries and cream slipped down a treat. To end the evening, we had a singsong led by Dave on his mandolin and Kerry singing the songs. As most of the songs were over 70 years old, we all new the words.
Thanks to all who helped make the evening such a great event.
Forms for booking for these events are in the pavilion.
Dogs and Bottles
At least it didn't rain, but summer has still to put in a proper appearance, and it was pretty chilly for the 16 brave souls who played in the Bowls Drive. The ladies obviously coped better with the elements than the men with the top spot going to Corinne Wheatley and second place going to Shirley Geldart. Congratulations to both of you and to Alec Weiss who organised the competition. Following the Drive we had a delicious Barbeque prepared by Maurice and Sylvia Reeves ably assisted by Andy Eames, Penny Kenward and Grace Griggs. Thank you to all for the work they put in. There was also a raffle that was run by Shirley Geldart. Another successful Social Event. Coming up in a couple of weeks is the Fish & Chip evening. If you haven't put your name down yet, please do so in the next few days, or give Frank a ring on 813756.
