Newsletter 32  -  26 April 2010

This will be my last newsletter for the season. I have enjoyed putting each one together and judging by your comments throughout the season they have proved informative, entertaining and worthwhile. Les Stuart spent many hours taking photos and these helped liven up the written text. Others sent stories, anecdotes, information or made corrections. I wont mention names for fear of omitting anyone but all were appreciated.

We belong to a club every member can feel proud of. Much of that is because we have very few passengers. People volunteer readily, members are interested in each other and take pride in the achievements of our bowling family. Thank you to our hard working committee members, to those who look after the greens, to the raffle ladies, to those who run Championships, the volunteer markers, the people who take entries and do all the chasing up to make competitions run smoothly, the many who made this year's gala so successful  .... and the list goes on. No club is perfect but Bowls Taradale must surely be up there with the best.

Enjoy the winter months. Some will take time to have a spell, others will travel (ash clouds permitting!!) while many will continue winter bowling. Whatever category you fall into I hope you enjoy the next few months and come back with renewed enthusiasm for the start of the 2010-2011 season.

Winter Season Friday Hetero Triples Tournaments
These will begin on Friday 14th May, Mufti, 12.00 p.m. start.
Entries to Lois 8446121.
Lois will take  a season entry, on the condition that, if for any reason your team cannot "front" you are responsible for finding a replacement team. Our suggestion to help overcome this is that you have a "base" of at least 4 players to cover for the inevitable unavailability of a member and work a rotation "stand down" turn. We think you will find that if it is your turn to stand down, there will be another team looking for a "fill in". This way Lois is able to plan confidently, and arrange greens and cards accordingly.
Winter Fill-ins
If you would like to play bowls occasionally over the winter but don't wish to tie yourself down to every Friday put your name on the sheet in the Club house.

It is not fair for skips to phone Lois when they are a player short. If skips make a list of those on the "fill-in" sheet it becomes much easier to get a replacement player when one is needed.

Closing Day
What a magnificent day to close the season on! Warm, sunny weather with just a hint of a breeze ensured a big turnout and everyone enjoyed the day. A social hour followed then the presentation of prizes and a shared meal.

Another milestone
Congratulations, Julie, on reaching another milestone. I ran out of fingers but ..... I know it is a very important one.
