Another successful afternoon of fun bowling was held on Wednesday 11 February. Generously sponsored by the firm of Jonathan Fogden, 14 teams were invited to bowl in an unusual format: 3 sets of 6 ends with the first three bowls around the jack, counting. A free buffet was provided after the presentation of prizes. Run almost entirely by Resident Ron, his team also won first prize. ... hmmm, remind me to have a look again at the score cards!
On New Year's Day a Fun Day in fancy dress was organised and run by Resident Ron. 14 rinks of 2-wood triples split into 2 sections.
Bleary-eyed but still competitive, bowlers turned up higgledy-piggledy and quite amazingly some order was achieved. 16 ends were played interspersed with target bowling at and around bottles, and then switching to tennis-sized junior bowls.
Much laughter, much fun, players were fined for saying inappropriate words. Funds were raised for specific purposes. The bar and restaurant contributed to the general merriment and goodwill to all men (and women) as did the free raffle.
Prizes were for the winning team after some tortuous play, and for the best fancy dress outfit. Scroll right down for videos.
Have a look at our veritable tournament organiser.

The New Year's Fun Day was a success with 50+ people turning up. Mike Lynch-Brown kept the bar open from 10.30 until 4.20 when the last of us left.
I think the Club benefited to the tune of £200+. Everyone enjoyed themselves and I think it might become a feature on the fixture list next year.
