Welcome back to the new Indoor Season, after a summer in which the weather has been good and has enabled those of us who play outdoors to get plenty of vitamin D!
At a meeting, held during the summer, two further offices were filled:-
Indoor Secretary – Chris Howard
Match Secretary – Doreen Lovering
Thank you to both for volunteering to carry out these important roles.
The general rules for the Indoor competitions have been revised and copies of the new rules will be available from the office.
Please consider entering at least one competition with your friends. If you are a relatively new bowler this is one way you can play against other players you may not have had an opportunity to play against before.
The competitions are great fun, are a great way to improve your bowls and help to create a good atmosphere within the Club. Competition forms are available from outside the office.
We are still looking for a volunteer to organise social events during the season, if you can help then please contact either, Chris Howard, the Indoor Secretary or Jessie Clark, Chairman.
The men’s evening leagues will start at 7pm, Monday to Thursday, With Friday being used for Mixed Evening League, the Men’s Mini-league and occasionally other leagues for which additional slots are required.
The leagues will play 18 ends by using an extra 15/20 minutes over the 2 hours allocated, if required. If it is found that games take longer than this then a further review of times will be carried out.
Please remember that all the previous league rules are still in operation.
- Placing jack
- 1 shot away for a burnt end.
- No visiting head.
The afternoon Ladies leagues from Monday to Thursday will commence not earlier than 4.30pm and not later than 4 45pm, this will allow extra time for car parking.
It should be noted however that where there are leagues scheduled for Fridays then the parking may still be an issue as the following Friday evening matches will still commence at 6.30pm.
We are pleased to welcome Louise Houghton Wealth Management (LHWM) as one of the Club sponsors for the next two years and thank her for the new mats!
