Newsletter Issue 70

Greetings everyone,

In the last newsletter, I reminded you that the quiz was on the following Saturday. It was a fun evening as usual despite our not winning again but, unlike bowling, it’s the taking part that counts! Only joking (not really but I have to pretend).

The next quiz is on 18th December when our quiz master/person/whatever will be Steve Bluck ably assisted by Tricia. It is the Christmas Quiz so I think that all the rounds will have some sort of Christmas feel to them.

Sadly for some of you, it is already fully booked! These evenings are proving very popular I’m pleased to say.

On that same evening prior to the quiz, the draw will take place for the Christmas raffle. I suggest that you arrive early so that the quiz can start on time (maybe 6.45). Should we need to change the arrival time, I’ll let you know in plenty of time.

It is now time to begin bringing in donations for the raffle. Either hand in your donations at reception or place them directly onto the covered snooker table in the far corner by the folding doors. Please make sure that the items are in date and of a decent quality – it’s not an excuse to empty your cupboards of junk.

The tickets for the raffle will be 50 pence each (you can buy as many as you wish) and available from reception.

You may have noticed that a rail of clothes has appeared next to the snooker table. These are all items of uniform which have been donated. Have a look through. There are some very good pieces. All that we ask is that you make a donation to the club, again at reception.

The rail will be there until the New Year after which it will be reviewed. Provided the clothes go well, there are plenty more to add.

I have a couple of points to reiterate. 

The use of Grippo and other such sticky products is strictly forbidden indoors. I understand that outdoors it is a good way of controlling the bowls in your hand. However, we were extremely lucky to have the money for the recently laid new carpet granted to us by Tewkesbury Borough Council. It was tens of thousands of pounds and should last a fair number of years but not if we don’t look after it. Please respect this valuable item.

Outdoor clothing and bowling bags must not be left rink-side. Either leave things in your locker or the changing rooms. Alternatively, there is a clothes stand just by the door into the kitchen.

Don’t forget that the ladies’ Yetton is being played this Saturday (20th November) against Cotswold – two rinks at home and two away. Spectators very welcome.

The following Friday morning the ladies’ Mason Trophy is being played at 10.00 against Malvern.

The following Saturday (27th November) is the first of the mixed interclub matches. One takes place at 10.00 while the other is at 1.00 and on Sunday 28th we are playing Newport in a friendly.

In that same week is Jim Geoghegan’s funeral. Everyone is welcome. Details are up on the white board in reception and in last week’s newsletter.

Again I hope I’ve remembered everything.

Take care, Linda.

Linda Watkin-Jones.
Director (PR & Marketing)
