Fairlight Bowls Club Newsletter July 2019
As you are aware, Captain Alec Weiss has resigned from his role and the club committee. Once again I thank him for his contribution to the running of the club over the last two years and wish him well in the future.
The committee has co-opted Colin Yellop onto the committee for the remainder of the year to support the vice-captain with his experience gained over his years as captain. Then we will elect the club captain at the AGM for next year. Thanks to Colin for agreeing to this role.
The selection subcommittee has asked me to remind all players to sign up for friendly matches – we are struggling for numbers in some matches. All who sign up will be considered and the committee will try to ensure everyone has a fair share of games. Selection for the Mermaid league games will be based on playing record and current form.
Lads and Lasses Saturday 3rd August
This is our annual men versus ladies match, which is followed by a cream tea – price for the tea is £3. We are a bit thin on numbers so please sign up on the list in the club house.
Also in the club house is the list for the annual trip to the greyhound races on 30th October.
Now we are affiliated members are eligible to play in the county competitions. There will be a list in the club house to indicate that you are interested in playing in these and when available there will be entry forms for these.
Unfortunately, I have to pass on the news that Sheila Reece has passed away. She has been a social member of the club for many years. Our thoughts are with Daphne and the whole family. The funeral will be held at 11.45am on Monday 29th July at Hastings crematorium. Family flowers only – donations to Altziemers Research UK.
We laid on a taster session of bowling for the youngsters of The Club a couple of Tuesdays ago. Some enjoyed it so much they want another go! So Penny Kenward has arranged to meet them on Monday 5th August at 10.30 for an hour. If you can help please let Penny Know.
FBC recently had three teams representing the club at the Mermaid Fling at Staplecross. Our team of Penny Kenward, Colin Yellop and Mark Jarvis came a respectable 2nd. Well done.
