A lovely sunny afternoon for bowling enjoyed by everyone. The winners were the Notts. Presidents team, winning 100 points to 90. the afternoon ended with a “spider” which was won by Roger Smith. The buffet was a great success. Sincere thanks must go to Pat Jones for her supreme baking prowess and to Marilyn, Glenys and Audrey (L to R in the photo) for their hard work in producing the buffet and serving teas, selling raffle tickets etc, and also to Norman for minding the bar. The green will remain open for the next week and the Tuesday afternoon roll up will be held outdoors, as usual, for the last time this season.

The club will be holding a Christmas social event on Friday the 25th November when all members and partners are invited so please put the date in your diaries. Short mat bowling commences on Tue 27th. September.
Thanks to all who enjoyed their bowling this summer especially to those who competed in the club competitions and league matches.

Village Match 4th Sept 2016

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday the weather did everything it could to disrupt play. Today it was a wonderful day, lots of sunshine and happy bowlers.

The annual Village Match proved to be a success yet again. 14 teams from 10 various Farnsfield Village organisations came together for a fun afternoon of bowling, keenly competed. The eventual winners with a score of 13 points were the History Society comprising of David Milnes, Sue Cole, Roger Swain. Jen Paige and Ron Hawkes. Congratulations to them.

I would like to point out that in accordance with rule 27 para 13 sub section 21 of the Club Constitution, “snogging” is not allowed on the green (Barbara and Clive take note) also the wearing of County Honours on their blazers is only allowed on those that have actually earned them Barbara.

The day raised a grand total of £171 which was presented to Peter Teather for the Community Responder Scheme. Thanks to all who took part and I hope that next year will see you all competing again.
