A few bits and pieces for your attention:
 
Housekeeping

Please hang wet mats singly, one to each pusher.  These are new mats and are already beginning to perish because they are stored wet on top of each other.

 
Volunteers required
 
As you will have seen from the fixtures list we have a busy season ahead and are now asking for volunteers to help with the teas for the matches with visiting clubs. This does not entail any food preparation as the sandwiches are bought in.
 
Please contact Vic Powell, patandvic2003@gmail.com or  01303 230669, with details of the days and times you would be available. A rota system will be drawn up to ensure all matches are covered.
 
Results
 
Cameron Potter won his section quarter final of the County Singles beating Colin Strouts 21-19 and, with his brother Alistair, won on their rink for KentU25 17-25 against Lenham.
 
The results from the Shepway League match on Monday were Hythe 8 points Cheriton 2 points.  Hythe is now 3rd in the Men’s league.
 
Finally, Please note that the home game against South Ockenden in July is now cancelled.

 

MUDDLES IS BACK 

With the expected further relaxation of Covid related restrictions, due on May 17th, we are looking to start Muddles play again.

Muddles will be played on MONDAY’s & FRIDAY’s from 3.00pm to 5pm. with no stopping for Tea. Drinks from the Honesty Fridge are available afterwards of course. Social Distancing must be maintained at all times until any further relaxation of Covid restrictions are announced. Finishing at 5.00 allows the Green to be cleared in time for County Matches, which we expect to commence at sometime.

So, from Monday May 10th, a sheet will be up on the Board in the corridor for you to be able to add your name if you wish to play Muddles, starting Monday May 17th. At this moment in time we are expecting the number of Players allowed to be 30. The Sheet will allow more Members than this to add their name with the first 30 automatically playing, those after the first 30 names will take priority and be added onto the following Muddles day play. 

Sheets will be put up each week and a week ahead. 

Honesty Bar

  • There are a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks in the fridge.

  • Drink prices are displayed on the fridge door.

  • Any drink taken from the fridge must be entered in the ledger with the following details:-

Date, item, price and name of member.

  • Accounts must be settled monthly on the 1st of the month by cheque or by bank transfer.

  • Cheques to be left in the Treasurers letter rack

  • Please bring your own glass

  • As from 1st May only drinks purchased from the club may be consumed on the premises with the exception of water.

We hope this system will work satisfactorily until the bar service can resume normally.

Management Committee

30th April 2021

 

It is with great regret and sadness to inform you of the passing of Robin Russell yesterday at the Pilgrims Hospice in Canterbury.

 
Robin was a long standing and much loved member of our club. He took an active part in activities throughout the year, in both Lawn and short mat bowls. Robin always had a smile on his face and he had a wonderful sense of humour. I for one will miss him and I am sure that those who knew him, and his many friends in the club will do so too. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family. R.I.P. Dear Boy.

 

In spite of Covid and the bad weather, Peter White & Trevor Clarke are busy cleaning the path surrounding the green.
