NEWS & NEWSLETTER
Many congratulations to our new member Colin Wagstaff who bowled at Leamington last week in a selection process for the Disability Bowls England National Team. I'm delighted to tell you that he was successful and has been picked to play for their High Performance Team later in the season.
Well done Colin, and good luck when you play your match.
Weather permitting, the Triples League gets underway tomorrow evening at 6pm. If we get the rain that’s forecast a decision will be made around 3pm, so please check your emails. Fingers crossed the forecast is wrong and battle can commence between the London Railway Stations. The bar will be open and spectators are heartily encouraged to come and support the teams.
OPEN DAY – SATURDAY 20th MAY
If you haven’t already got your name down to help out on the day then please get in touch with Clive (01572 757448). There will be a Practice Day on Tuesday 16th May from 10am -12noon. This is to allocate roles and familiarise everyone with how the day will work. If you cannot come to the practice day but do want to help then please arrive at 10.30am on Saturday 20th and you will be given a role to play. All help is greatly appreciated.
PRESIDENT’S EVENING – WEDNESDAY 24th MAY 7pm
This is a fun social evening but will also raise funds for Graham’s President’s Day later in the year in August. There will be Tombola, Raffle, Games, Bring & Buy, Cakes, Preserves, Plants and other attractions. The bar will of course be open and it promises to be a good social evening amongst friends.
We obviously cannot do this without your usual generosity, so Donations of Tombola prizes (either wrapped in paper or a gift bag please), Raffle Prizes, bring and buy, cakes, plants etc. will be very welcome. Please leave in the Ladies’ changing room in bags marked “President’s evening”. Cakes, preserves and plants can be brought down on the day please. Thank you in anticipation.
If you would like to help on one of the stalls or games during the evening, I would be very grateful, please give me a ring (01572 821137)
We are still looking for more Bar Staff to do a stint or two. If you’ve got experience of working behind a bar that would be brilliant, but you don’t have to have done it before as full training will be given. Betty and Frances do us proud behind the bar, but they would like someone else to give a hand now and again. Please give Derek a ring if you can help (01572 869534)
We are of course still looking for a Treasurer to take over from Paul when he steps down at the end of the year. To learn more about what the job entails please get in touch with Paul (01572 757198).
The next subscription is due at the end of the month please. If you’d like to join the club lottery, give Paul a ring.And Finally, Please don’t forget to put your names down for the Friendlies. We really don’t want to have to cancel any of our matches. HAPPY BOWLING
