Newsletter Issue 78

Well, I really don’t have the time to write this newsletter what with bowling, walking the dog, cooking, cleaning and watching World Bowls on YouTube until it begins on 17th on Terrestrial TV.

There have been some cracking matches already. I should be spot on now having watched the masters at work. Sadly, there’s more to it than that but it makes great viewing if you’re a bowler!

As mentioned in last week’s newsletter, the finals of the mixed Saturday Interclub matches take place this Saturday morning from 10.00am. If you’re not playing, please come to support.

In the evening it’s the quiz which looks to be very popular, as usual. Table reservations for the February quiz are already well underway, I’m told.

MidGlos A are playing Cotswold B on Sunday. Again, your support is very welcome.  MidGlos A Ladies are playing MidGlos B Ladies on Friday, 21st and on Sunday, 23rd, MidGlos A men are playing Fairford while MidGlos B men are against Chipping Norton.

Please support if you can.

Ticket sales for Burns Night have gone really well. In fact I think we’re up to capacity. A great deal of preparation has gone into this event. It should be a very enjoyable evening – the first ambitious event we have tackled, led by our very enthusiastic and capable Social Secretary, Lin Brighty.

If you’ve entered the club competitions, please make sure that you try to complete your matches by the dates posted on the notice board. I know myself that it is tricky trying to find dates to suit all concerned with everything else going on.

Now it’s back to World Bowls. Greg Harlow is playing in the mixed pairs this morning. I like to follow his progress since we feel we know him as we always see and chat with him at Potters.

Take care,

Linda Watkin-Jones.
