Don’t Forget Big Bowls Weekend

Our Open Day, in conjunction with the Bowls Development Alliance, takes place on May 29th from 10:30 until 4:00. Everyone is welcome to come along and try their hand at the sport. The clubhouse will be open, free coffee, tea, and biscuits will be available and the bar will be open if you wish to purchase any other drinks. Helpers will be on hand throughout the day so note the date in your diary and come along to give the sport a try.

Taffy Trophy

We are planning to run the Taffy Trophy in conjunction with President’s Day on Sunday 7th August starting a 10:15am. The list for names will be on the board in the clubhouse from mid-July. The number of pools and constitution of pools will be determined nearer the date when the number of players is known. Each player will play the other members of their pool, 5 ends per match. The pool winners will then play off (semi-final and final). Some food will be provided but feel free to bring your own food as well.

Club ’49’ Tote

We hope to be restarting the Club Tote from the beginning of May 2022. The cost will remain at £1 per entry per week. This is an important fund-raising activity for the club and, if we did not run it, the annual subscription would have to increase by over £20 per member. There are still numbers available so we therefore ask anyone who has not yet joined to pick your number and get in touch with Barry. As before, to reduce the administration, we ask that participants pay a minimum of 10 weeks in advance. The winner will be whoever has the number corresponding to the ‘bonus ball number’ in the Saturday National Lottery Draw. In the event that no member has the winning number (or they are in arrears with their payments) then the prize will be rolled on to the following week. The income from the Tote will be shared 50:50 between the winners and the club.
