Newsletter Issue 26

Here we go again – the first newsletter of another lockdown!

As I said before, we did it last time so we’ll do it again, but the weather is not likely to be quite as favourable as last time! Hey ho, let’s hope this lockdown achieves what the government is hoping for.

Fortunately, we managed to get the last of the finals completed last Sunday.

The winners were :

M.Prosser – men’s singles
J. Kemsley – Pat Dunstan cup
L. Watkin-Jones, R. Fry and G. Fry – Sue Waterston cup
M. Prosser – Champion of Champions

Congratulations to everyone and well done to all who played. Thank you to everybody who entered and took part in all the competitions. Not only is it good experience but it is also revenue for the club and every penny helps in these trying times!

I hope you’re enjoying the challenge of Jill and Frank Skelton’s quizzes. The answers to Flower quiz 2 follow:

Provided we return to the same conditions under which we’ve operated for the last few weeks, John Doody and Colin Bell are hoping to organise another friendly in December between MidGlos and Dowty. As soon as we know what the state of play will be, the date will appear in the newsletter and a notice will go up, as usual, in the club. We will try to accommodate as many as possible.

Something to look forward to is a possible Christmas quiz. Provided we go back to the rule of six, we should be able to do it but it will be not quite the same as our previous quizzes. The aim is to have fun but without food ( drink of course will be available from the chiller cabinets unless we are allowed to open the bar ). The idea is that you would pre-book your table of six for your team so that we would be able to control the numbers. Again, I’ll keep you posted.

The club is now moth-balled for a minimum of a month (hopefully) but essential maintenance work will continue ready for our return. Look after yourselves and keep in touch with each other if you can.

PR and Marketing Director.
