PRESIDENTS ADDRESS

2019 BOWLS SEASON

April fast approaches and with its commencement the 2019 bowling season gets underway. I would like to wish all members a happy and enjoyable summer of bowling. Another summer like 2018 would be marvelous plenty of sunshine and few matches cancelled. This seasons tour is to the Stratford on Avon area staying at Ettington Chase. Where I am sure Dai Williams and cohorts will have plenty of opportunity to sell raffle tickets and to administer fines commiserate with crimes committed during the tour. With Dave Williams as county president this year there will be several county games held at the club. Any assistance with the layout and clearance of green equipment on the days concerned whether you are playing or not would be greatly appreciated. Support your captain and vice – captains throughout the season and I am sure that the forth coming season will be a resounding success.

President

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Pat requested his Church to check if they played bowls in Heaven.
After a week the Priest approached Pat with the answer.
He said, “I have good news and bad news”.
Pat said, “Tell me the good news first”.
The Priest said, “The good news is that they do play bowls in Heaven”.
“What’s the bad news ?”, said Pat.
The Priest said, “Well Pat, the word is out that your name is down for the pairs next Saturday
