PEMBURY BOWLS CLUB SEPTEMBER 2019 – NEWSLETTER No. 248

1786: Ladies Fun Day: Very successful event again this year. Many thanks to all you ladies who worked so hard with the food and running the day so well, and the men for erecting and taking down the marquee etc. All guests appeared to enjoy themselves. The proceeds from entry fees and the raffle etc helped to make nearly £800 for the club.

1787: Working parties are needed on Tuesday 8th to Thursday 10th October to lift and clean the ditch mats, and attempt to solve the problems with the green matting on the sides of the ditches. Please contact Phil about this even if you can only spare a couple of hours a day it will be helpful. Do not leave it to the few faithful servants of the club.

1788: London Beach Luncheon 20th October. We are short of members and guests at present. Only 18 so far. Please contact Sue or Roy urgently if you can come. The next one will be in April 2020 the date to be arranged shortly.

1789: Prize presentation and fish and Chips night is on Friday 15th November at 7 pm, later than usual as Friday is the chippies busy evening. Please let me know your food selection a week before and bring a raffle prize with you.

1790: The first Match vs the Royals is on Saturday 16th November. More names needed for this please.

1791: ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. Sunday 24th November at 11 am. Anyone wishing to propose a motion must do so by three weeks before this date.

1792: Christmas party is to be on Friday 13th December at 6 for 6.30 pm in the Clubhouse.

1793: Quiz Night – Thanks to Barbara and Roy Allen, we had an enjoyable and somewhat noisy quiz night. The Club benefitted with £112.50 in the kitty.

1794: The end of season is here. I am sure you will agree with me, it is over too quickly. The weather has been exceptional and the condition of our green as good or even better than I can remember before, thanks to the work carried out by James Hickmott and our club members. Praise is due to Malcolm our Captain for his efforts in managing to badger enough players into most of the friendly match teams.
