Thanks to those members who helped clear the green of leaves this morning. We will do another clearance once all the trees have shed their leaves.
League Bowling has now finished for this season. This is how our teams ended up:-
North Derbyshire: Played 12 Won 5 Lost 7. Finished 4/8
Longdendale: Played 12 Won 7 Lost 5. Finished 3/7
Stockport Vets Pairs: Played 18 Won 11 Lost 7. Finished 4/10
High Peak Mixed Pairs: Played 12 Won 5 Lost 7. Finshed 6/7
The nights may be drawing in but we will keep our greens open for as long as possible, weather permitting. Today we mowed both greens and we will keep doing so just as long as the grass keeps growing.
Last year we closed the green at the end of October so we probably have another 4 weeks left to enjoy bowling.
Congratulations to our Saturday Longdendale team who beat undefeated Etherow by 12 points to 4 on 7 August away from home. There were some great wins by six of our bowlers, especially new bowler Simon Turner who has won 3 out of 3 games this season.
As a result of the Government’s easing of Covid 19 restrictions from 19 July, it will no longer be necessary to book the bowling green from this date. If you want to play you just need to turn up. If there is a match taking place, please use the bottom green.
All Government guidance on how to prevent the spread of the virus should be followed when you are on the green.
Well done to Pam Taylor and David Elshaw who won the Round Robin Doubles competition on 27th June.
Free Entry for all All Members
On Sunday 27th June we are organizing a mixed double competition round robin.
This will be a free competition for members and social members. Start time 12pm – Approx. finish time 5pm
Refreshments will be available courtesy of the club and a raffle has been arranged with prizes donated by Manor Park delegates.
The money received from selling raffle tickets will go to the club to help funds after a terrible 18 months.
Please let us know if you want to participate, as when we know how many would like to play a seeded draw will be made to partner team players with new members.
In our first league match of the season our Stockport Vets team beat South Reddish Park 70 – 58.
