Ladies News - September

2nd September 2022

September has arrived and the weather is changing; warmer clothing is appearing and the daily knobbly knees parade reducing. We have only three games remaining in the Affinity and 20/20 leagues and  two ladies afternoons before our final event which will be the end of season tea and presentation on Monday 19th September.Demand for places is high so book your place soon! There will not be the usual ladies bowls afternoon on the 19th - this does mean that we can dress comfortably to enjoy the tea and cakes (experience suggests something loose fitting or with an elasticated waist! ).

Thank you to everyone who has put their names forward for the Affinity and 20/20 league games this season and to the impressive numbers who have come along on Monday afternoons. It has been a pleasure to include so many of you in games and to see the newer ladies in teams and doing so well.Heartfelt thanks also to the ladies who have stepped out of their comfort zones to play in back end positions and as skips.

Other news :

The fixed jack competition was played on the 8th August through to the final round which will be between Sue Kemp and Sharon Kyprianou, taking place on Finals weekend. Twelve ladies entered and played on the day - a really good turnout and something to build on next year. Thanks to Phil Sams and Phil Morris for their support and for marking on the day.

Thursday evening ‘Spoons’ has now finished and the winner (Tina) and runner-up (Lizzie) will be presented with their prizes at the end of season event on 19th September.

Vice Captain position ; Sadly, no-one has come forward. I can only reiterate Maureen’s recent email to you all adding that if there are no volunteers to fill vacant posts then the only way for those remaining in posts to manage will be to reduce the program across the board. If a couple of you wished to combine forces we could train up a v.c. with an assistant/back-up and together resolve the ladies vacancy . The more volunteers, the easier life is for us all.

Finals weekend ; Come along on the weekend of 17th and 18th September to support the finalists. Look out for the schedule of games and support the ladies playing, it makes a real difference to have you there cheering the finalists on.
