NOTICE: Sad News

 

It is sad news to advise of the death of Rod Harvey at 6 a.m. yesterday morning (14th).  Many of you will know him from his sterling work with Indoor Bowls at Handy Cross.  Tim  and I particularly sad as he was one of the first people to introduce us to bowls when we joined BroomWade and was a larger-than- life character.

NOTICE:  Sad News

 Peter Horton (Chesham)

 

Sadly we have been advised that  Peter Horton passed away yesterday. He had been feeling unwell for a few days. On Saturday morning Janet called 111, the paramedics were with them within 10 minutes. Peter was having a heart attack and was taken to Harefield hospital where he passed away peacefully. He was the kindest of men with a great sense of humour and fun. There are no words that can convey the enormous sense of loss many of us will feel.

Our thoughts are with his family.

NOTICE:      Spring Meeting Cancelled -

An announcement from Tim Timberlake:-

As expected in view of the on-going crisis it has been decided to cancel the Spring Meeting on 29th March. As you know we normally use this meeting to pay our subscriptions for the forthcoming season. However,  It is proposed not to collect any subs at present and see how the year pans out.

We are hoping to keep the green maintained throughout the season to allow for the possibility of some bowling activity at a later date.

 I will keep you updated of further developments.  In the meantime look after yourselves and be careful.

Chairman 

 ChessVale ; Winter League ; Current table

The Coronavirus situation has caused the final game in the league to be called off, so the final table leaves Chalfont Wickers at the Top, clear by two points, and so congratulations to the team of John & Pam Anderson, Mike & Flora Alderton, Tim & Liz Baldwin and Hazel Baker. 

The  presentation will be scheduled into the future when the current 'emergency' has passed.

Handy Cross Cup ; STOP PRESS ;  We topped the group after the round robin stages, and play Flackwell Heath in the Final, on March 8th.  Well done to all those who have played so far, and the Final team will be selected shortly.  Follow the link for the final table ;  ..http://www.130835.mrsite.com/HX Cup results.pdf 

 Handy Cross Cup ;  The final game of the round-robin stages of the HX Cup was held on Sunday afternoon against Flackwell Heath.  Both teams were unbeaten to date, so it was not surprising that the game was close-fought.  Tony Joe & Denise R managed a 20-17 win, but were just eclipsed for top honours by Rose, Martin & Mike A (20-14) . The final triple was taken to the wire, but Linda Liz & Rob were pipped by the Flackwell Captains team (12-15), to achieve a 2-1 victory.  We now await news of which team we will be playing in the final in March.   Well done to everyone concerned. 

 100 Club January Draw    The first draw of the year has been made and the three lucky winners are....
