Captains News August 2021
New Club Pavilion
Those of you who have not been up at the Club over the hot summer will not have seen the progress of the new Club Pavilion which is almost finished. Our thanks go to all those who have helped construct it, especially Richard Warrilow, Dave Forret and Peter Whitbread who worked tirelessly in hot conditions.
Captains Charity Evening
As last year’s event was cancelled due to Covid, Yvonne and I organised a joint Captains Charity on Fri 20 August. Our chosen Charity was Jalon Valley Help and the Charities own Group “The Entertainers“ provided the entertainment.
We had promised a really special El Cid night and everyone agreed that it was the best ever but take a look on our Facebook page for pics and videos if you missed it. These guys and Girls were just amazing. We hit our target of 1000 euros thanks to the generosity of those who attended and others who made donations.
Ilya and his staff dished up an excellent BBQ for the 80 people who attended and kept the Bar service going to almost midnight.
I must say the only disappointment was the lack of support from Club members. We were heavily outnumbered by friends and family.
LLB Leagues 2021
We have entered 2 teams in the Northern League but no Challenger and 1 team in the Winter League but no Berleen. There are 10 teams in the Northern League and 8 in the Winter League this year. Covid and Brexit has taken its toll on Bowlers.
Jill Glastonbury has agreed to continue as Captain of the Swords and Paul Trunchion has accepted my request to Captain the Sabres. I will Captain the Winter League.
Fixtures will be out next week and Captains will be asking for availability from you. Our numbers are very tight across all teams so please support your Captains and try and keep our dates free or give as much notice as possible of unavailability.
