WELCOME TO THE NEW INDOOR SEASON.

We trust you have all enjoyed the outdoor weather over the last 5 months and are now ready to meet the different challenges of the indoor rinks!

 

Indoor Leagues

We have a full schedule of indoor league matches and I hope you have all managed to re-join your league teams for the coming year.  In addition, we are very pleased to announce the start of the new Mixed Triples League – to be held on Tuesday mornings 10:30am to 12:30 pm.

 

Any member still looking for a team in any of the leagues then please advise Colin Brown accordingly.

 

Friendly Matches:

We have a schedule of friendly matches arranged for the winter months, mainly on Saturdays and Sundays and we would welcome more members putting themselves forward for selection. Simply add your name to the match sheets found on the notice boards in the club – YOUR SUPPORT WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED.

 

New members are encouraged to join in with the friendly matches, as this is an excellent way to enjoy the friendly atmosphere, meet new people and improve your bowling (hopefully).

Social Events

A programme of events has been arranged for members throughout the year and Jim Roll has kindly agreed to stay as Social Chairman. More members are sought to serve on the Social Committee and if you are interested then please let Jim know.

 

The next social event is the Club Annual Dinner & Dance being held on Saturday 21st October and ALL members are invited to attend this event.

 

Xmas Carol Singing evening is now to be held on Sunday 17th December 2017.

 

Relocation Update

Following receipt of planning approval for the development of the new club facilities at Green lane in September 2016 we have been frustrated by the inordinate delays caused by the Planning Department of RBWM.

 

Thankfully, we now seem to have resolved all outstanding issues and conditions attached to the approval and anticipate a start on site of October/November 2017 and completion in September 2018 – ready for the 2018/19 Indoor Season. We will keep you informed as to any further developments as they occur, including a presentation in November of the proposed interior design scheme.

 

The new Club will be fantastic and well worth waiting for!!
