Fairlight Bowls Club Newsletter September 2017


Dear Members

The season has rushed by and we are into the last month.  I hope you have enjoyed your bowling.

The competition finals take place this weekend so please come and support those who have battled their way to a final – there is only one person in more than one final this year which reflects how our players have raised their game.  There are matches on both mornings and afternoons and, as normal, there will be nibbles at lunch time.

It is time to look forward to next year.  The nominations sheet for committee officers and members is now on the notice board.  If you wish to serve then you need to be nominated and seconded by other club members and sign to confirm your willingness to stand.  Nominations will be accepted until the club luncheon on 18th October. All nominations will go to the vote at the AGM.  In addition to the usual roles we will be looking for a social secretary to coordinate the social events with a small team of club members.

If you are interested in any role but do not know what would be involved we have compiled a ‘Committee Roles’ document that will be adjacent to the nominations sheet.  If anyone would like a copy I can send you one.

Social and Fun Events

Well done to the Lads for winning the Lads and Lasses event and thanks to Colin and Maureen Yellop for preparing the excellent low fat cream tea.

The BarBQ went well, with 30 bowlers and 43 diners.  I hope you enjoyed it – I lost 2 stone in front of the fire!  A big thankyou to all the ladies who contributed the delicious sweets and to Colin Y for his help cooking and Colin F for arranging the bowling.

The list for the President versus Chairman will be up by the weekend so please sign up.  It is the Chairman’s turn to win if I remember correctly.

The final preparation for the greyhounds is under way - The coach will leave The Circle at 11.15 am. Please ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes earlier. There will be 2 other pick-up points on the way – first at the Knoyle Road bus stop and second at the bus shelter, The Wheatsheaf, Little Common.

We hope you all have a great day out and good luck!

The Club Luncheon details are on the notice board.  I have attached this to the back of this newsletter – if you cannot get to the club to fill in your name and requirements just give me a call.

The feedback sheets for your thoughts on how to improve the Sparrow Cup are still in the club house.  Please let us have your thoughts.

There are several Bonus Ball numbers still available from Shirley Geldart.  Each number is £1 per week with the winner taking £30.  Any profit goes to club funds.
