Well that weekend went by quickly. We had a very good turn out of 21 on Saturday afternoon at the roll up. It was good to see new members, new-to-indoor-bowls members and one brand new to bowls altogether! Thanks to Kevin K for organising the 6 x triples and to Stella K who helped Shaf, our brand new bowler and me Stella was able to pass on tips that she had learned when she started bowling a year ago. Looking at the game with fresh eyes is very helpful. Shaf was definitely getting the hang of it by the end of the session (and managed to hold shot on two ends!). Then Stella filled in for someone in the triples who had to leave early She played jolly well too!
There will be another one this Saturday, starting at 2.00 pm. We will try and get something more competitive – e.g. triples, men v ladies later in the month when there isn’t a match at the weekend and fewer bowls are ending up in the back ditches! A lot of people have taken a break from the outdoor season and are just coming around to thinking of returning indoors.
The sign up sheets are up for October games. These include the National team competitions. Please sign up. The provisional fixture list is up on the Calendar section of the website.
Monday morning roll up today 10.00 – 12.00. Quite a few of you have run out of green fee voucher books. Jane will be there ready to serve you with these and other beverages from 11.30 am until about 1.30 pm. She will be back again around 5.00 pm – 6.00 pm.
Does anyone work for a flooring company? We could do with some new lino/non-slip tiles in the bar area to go with the new fixtures and fittings and to wrap around into the sink area. Carpet (which is what is there at the moment) is very impractical!
Top temp today forecast to be 16C. You’ll need a fleece/jacket out there but hopefully not an umbrella now this morning’s downpour has gone over..
