VPBC JUNE 2018 NEWSLETTER
It has been great to see lots of members new and old enjoying bowling at VPBC in the recent fine weather.
We now have a group of member volunteers cutting the second green regularly which is already improving its condition. Members can now virtually always bowl – even if a match is underway. Soon both greens will be a pleasure to use.
However the Atco mower used on the second green by the volunteers is not proving to be reliable and a good second hand machine will need to be purchased. We hope to raise the extra funds needed for this via our event and refreshment activities. Please support the volunteers with an extra donation at these events or into the refreshment box if you can.
We are fortunate to have two greens and so have the capacity to welcome new members. Victoria Park BC is a good place to enjoy the great social sport of crown green bowling. Can YOU recruit new members? Only £30 for the rest of the 2018 season!
We are currently in the middle of an 8 week “BOWL FOR HEALTH” coaching programme held on Saturday mornings which is going very well. We hope all participants enjoy the sessions; some have already said they might become VPBC members.
Our 3 Women’s and 7 Men’s team fixtures are now in full swing. Spectators are always welcome. See the website for fixtures and full details of results.
The Saturday 30 June Club Competition has been cancelled and replaced with a Social Round Robin – please arrive by 1.15 for a 1.30 start. This is because of the Friendly Competition on Sunday 1 July with the Southport Croquet.Club.
We have these special EVENTS planned –
1. I July Croquet v Crown Green Challenge
2. 7 July Friendly Match away to Crossens BC
3. 16, 17, 18 & 19 August Southport Flower Show
4. I September Club Outing to Canberra Club, Salmesbury
5. 8 September Friendly Match v our Flat Green neighbours the Kings Gardens based Southport Bowling Club.
Full details on all these will be posted on the smaller board in the Pavilion which is now the designated space for “sign up sheets”. Please do look at them and sign up ASAP.
NB This board will also now be used to show restricted access dates to Victoria Park for cars, etc. Do please note these restrictions carefully.
1. Woodvale Rally 16 & 17 June – no bowls or parking
2. Southport Air Show 6, 7 & 8 July – no parking
3. Southport Flower Show from 13th to 22 August – no parking.
We are actively considering starting a new venture – regular, friendly Mixed Pairs matches at VP. Please sign up if interested and we will organise a meeting to sort out format, days, timing etc.
Please can I ask all members, including especially recent joiners, to come forward with suggestions and ideas to help and improve the club.
Volunteers to help the club are of course very welcome. Please talk to me or any committee member.
