How they affect the Club New Covid Rules Effective 24 Sept
Our season came to an end yesterday with a well supported CLOSING OF THE GREENS. A BIG THANK YOU to Captain George who kept bowling going in difficult circumstances ably assisted by Lady Captain Gill and Peter Babbage who became our on-site action committee.
Our thanks also to David who organised the Afternoon Triples, John who managed to persuade a couple of clubs to fulfil their fixtures, members who joined the weekly working party, those who tended our gardens; and you for supporting their endeavours.
We now turn attention to our WINTER SOCIAL PROGRAMME which provides a variety of activities for members during the close season. We hope to begin with Bingo (13 October), Crib Singles (15 October), Quiz (20 October), Who wants to be a Millionaire (3 November), Sunday Lunch (15 November) and a talk on Titanic (17 November). In addition George is setting up the short mat league and Liz is looking at feasibility of restarting Pilates. Further details and a fuller programme will be available soon.
WINTER BAR HOURS commencing next week are:
Tuesday & Thursday 5 – 9pm; Friday 5 – 10pm and Saturday Noon – 2pm.
Continuation of these bar hours and winter activities will depend on COVID restrictions prevailing at any given time and getting sufficient support from members.
Our thanks to members who have enlisted in the 100 CLUB. The first draw will take place on Friday 2 October.
