     This Saturday coming is a Special Competition Day. The last was postponed owing to the highly successful Croquet/Bowls Day.

    This Saturday Andy Muchall will supervise a MIXED DOUBLES competition. You do NOT need to find a partner. Partners will be drawn on the day with a significant handicap to any all-male pairings left over at the end of the Draw. Otherwise the usual handicaps will apply. ALL ABILITIES WELCOME!

    There will be a number of Spot Prizes which will be issued along the way on Saturday but these will be kept a mystery until the actual event.

    Depending on numbers there will be a reserve competition. Both greens will be used. Our resident Mary Baker has agreed to provide a Cream Tea in the Interval.

    This is a not-for-profit event so entry to the Competition including Cream Tea will be £2:50 and after deductions for the Cream Tea and Spot Prizes all monies will be distributed in Prize Money.

    A list will be up in the Pavilion until Friday or you can e-mail me (this helps catering arrangements). If you just turn up on the morning of the event we MIGHT let you in but please arrive early if you are doing this and tell me on your arrival.

    THIS EVENT IS EXPECTED TO START AT 12:00 MIDDAY AND LAST UNTIL APPROXIMATELY 4:00 P.M. (NB No admission to this event if you arrive unannounced after 11:50 a.m.)

    I am delighted to invite you to come and celebrate the formal opening of our 'transformed' Pavilion and the No.2 green, a great start to 2018.

    The pavilion transformation is nearing completion and it will provide all members and visitors with much better facilities. You will be truly amazed at the outcome.

    In order for as many members as possible to attend, we are having two opening celebrations and both will be followed by a Round Robin on No.2 green, weather permitting, for those who wish to play.

    Soup and snacks are planned at 1.00pm on both Tuesday, 9th Jan and Saturday, 13th Jan.

    The end of month EVENT will be a Handicap Singles Competition which will run in place of the usual Round Robin on the main green. This competition is open to all members, male, female, experienced or beginner, with the usual handicap system operating. I hope to run a reserve competition for first round losers so that everyone will get at least two games. Our Cup/Award specialist Ted is away on holiday so the winner might have to wait for that, but hopefully we can run to a cash prize for the finalists of the Main and Reserve competition. The comp will start as soon after 12:30 p.m. as I can manage.

    The Club has decided to provide sandwiches and cake with the usual tea/coffee for all competitors and increase the entry fee to £4 per person.

    I am hoping to use number one green only as number two green is not suitable for competition, but this will mean a shorter game (probably eleven up plus/minus handicap) in the preliminary matches and first round of the competition and throughout the reserve comp.
