Bowls Section Items
Bowling Green Open
The bowling green has now re-opened after the work undertaken. There is still some work to go so please keep an eye out for any signs regarding chemicals on the green and you MUST switch the green for wormcasts before playing otherwise we will undo all the good work put in to revive the green.
Bowling Green Closure
Due to the cold weather, the decision has been taken to close the bowling green for a little longer to protect the new grass. We will continue to review this and aim to re-open the green ASAP.
Bowling Green Update
A huge amount of work has gone into the bowling green, the improvement is visible already so we must give thanks to those members who have put in many hours to get us to this stage. Some members have asked for an update as to when the green will be open again and the current advice from those doing the work on the green is “The Green is closed for continuing maintenance until Thursday 1st December”. We will provide further updates closer to the time but if the weather holds it looks like we may be able to reopen then.
The 2022 Bowls Dinner & AGM will take place on Wednesday the 19th of October 2022. The evening will start at the District Club where any bowls business will be undertaken and will then continue at Le Patio St Annes. A signup sheet and menu are now on the club noticeboard.
Sunday Fun Bowls
The one and only Sunday Fun Bowls this year will be on the 21st of August and start a little earlier at 10:30. As this will include lunch we need to have numbers by the 18th of August so please sign up on the club noticeboard or by contacting Neil Plummer by then.
Presidents Day 2022
This year’s Presidents Day will happen on the 9th of July starting at 12:30pm. It will feature the usual Bowls, Snooker, Dominoes & Buffet. Once again in parallel will be the Ladies Lunch held in St Annes for partners of club members. The signup details for both are on the main club noticeboard.
In the evening following Presidents Day, we will once again be having the After Party for members and their guests. This will feature some guest entertainment and the usual socialising.
Green Opening & Spring Open Bowls Competition.
The green opening and Spring Open bowls have been combined this year. Saturday the 21st May starting at 12pm we will hold the normal Spring Open knockout bowls competition at the District Club. Please sign up on the club noticeboard by the 20th of May and the draw will take place on the day.
Bowling Green UPDATE
Unfortunately this year the green has taken longer to recover so winter bowling has not been available, and the condition of the green is not up to the usual standard for this time of year.
Ongoing renovation is being carried out and the Council have agreed that the green can be opened for play at this time but will have to be closed again for a short time in the near future for further work to be carried out before the bowling season begins.
Annual Bowls Dinner
The annual Bowls Dinner will be on the 12th of October at Le Patio Restaurant St Annes. We will meet at the club for the usual meeting at 6:30pm and head to the restaurant for 7:30pm. All members and bowlers are welcome. Please signup on the club noticeboard by the 8th of October.
