 Burnham Plate Winners ;   On Wednesday 23rd Oct, a number of our members  attended the  Bucks County Ladies' Lunch at Weston Turville GC,  when the Burnham Plate trophy was presented to our Ladies following their fine win at the end of the season.  Candi Ivey, Chris Moir and Flora Alderton collected the plate on behalf of all those who contributed to the ladies' overall run.

 

In addition, Ladies Captain Pat McKay collected the runners-up trophy on behalf of  Hazel Baker who reached the final of the  County stage of the Champion of Champions this year,    Both trophies were presented by the Bucks Ladies President. 

 

Saturday 12th October saw the second weekend of Carpet Bowls.  Word is out on the street that it's a great game as 14 expectant players arrived to have a go (or was it to eat the doughnuts!!)  

 After much excitement at the beginning, all players settled to concentrate on the games - now taking place on two rinks in the club house.   Much laughter and banter could be heard as the rules seem to be nothing like those followed in short mat bowls or lawn bowls!!  2 hours later saw a winning team - but we won't let on as to who they were!

The next 'Carpet Bowls Meet' will take place on Tuesday 15th October - 6 p.m. start and the cost will be £2.50 which will include pizza / tea / biscuits.  If you fancy an alcoholic drink, it's "bring your own". 

The next Saturday meeting will be 1030 on the 19th and will only cost £2.00 which includes the game, tea/coffee/biscuits.

Do come along and have a try.  If worried about walking across the field let Michael Wise know and we can arrange for transport from the gate to the clubhouse. 

RESULT ;  The Indoor match against Handy cross IBC was the first of our winter season (and theirs), and it was a shame that many of our regular indoor bowlers were unavailable. However well done to all those who took part in a match reduced from Rinks to Triples, and thanks to Ron Yates from Glory Mill for making up our numbers when Rob Kirby injured himself. 

At half time we were still in touch at 33 - 44 , but then … Oh Dear, the wheels came off and Handy Cross cruised to an overall win by 101 - 44.  We did manage one winning rink, so Top Rink goes to Bobbie Richards , Ron Yates and Tim Baldwin (20-17) and we look forward to a better result in our second game at HX in February.

CARPET BOWLS ;   As a new initiative to use the clubhouse through the winter a short mat layout has been set up in the clubhouse, and  a trial this Saturday has shown it to both viable and FUN.  Further trial runs are planned on Tuesday 8th at 18.00 and next Saturday 12th at 10.30.  No equipment is needed, just 'come as you are' and T & B  will be available initially, whilst we gauge interest, and maybe develop refreshments and parallel activities in due course.  If you are interested in coming down, please contact Mike or Gill Wise (07887983477) for more info and to allow planning for numbers. 

 PLEASE NOTE ;  The indoor matches due to be played through the winter season, start with a game against Handy Cross on Sunday Oct 6th.  Team picks for this, and subsequent games, will be found under "Indoor Matches".  If you put your names down, please check this area regularly.
