Short Mat Carpet Bowls

To All Members:

 

Our Short Mat Carpets Bowls Season commences on Monday, 3rd October 2016.

The sessions are as follows:

Monday afternoons…………………………………2:00pm

Wednesday afternoons………………………...….2:00pm

Friday evenings (when the bar will be open)….7:00pm

 

 

Alan Hearn has kindly agreed to oversee the above along with Denis Mayne.  Any other volunteers will be more than welcome to assist Alan and Denis to ensure we have cover for each session.

 

I hope you will all be able to support the Carpet Bowls throughout the winter and it is hoped we will be able to organise further activities throughout the winter months.

 

Many Thanks,

Richard Dodd,

Hon. Secretary

 

(The cost is just £1.00 per person per session and includes tea/coffee and biscuits, for which we break approximately half-way through).

Crib Night for Club Members

Wednesday Evenings, 7.00pm - 10.00pm

5th October 2016 to April 2017

 

Whether you are an experienced Crib player or a beginner, why not come along to our Crib Night held at the clubhouse every Wednesday evening.  

If you have your own Crib board and cards, then please bring them along, but don't worry if you haven't, we do have spares.

Crib nights are a great social get-together and we even open the bar.  As with our Carpet Bowls, the cost is just £1.00 per person and includes tea or coffee and biscuits, halfway through the evening.

Contact Dave and Pat Hart for further information.
