A new  mixed Sunday Jackpot Pairs competition is being tried out starting on Sunday 9th June at 2 pm. There will be an entry fee but a chance for everyone (winners and losers) to win the jackpot each week.  The matches will mainly be in the form of three bowl pairs. When the matches are complete a draw will be made for a number between 1 and 20, and if the shots difference in any match is the same as the number drawn, the jackpot (initially 60) will be shared among the players in that match. Everyone has a chance to win! If no score matches the number drawn, the entry fees go toward increasing the jackpot in the following week. Entries can be made in advance on the Social Events notice board, or just come down on Sunday before 1.45 pm.

Season 2019 opened officially on 13th April on a sunny if somewhat chilly day. President Chris Lebessis introduced the guests and then welcomed 14 new members to the club most of whom were present on the day.  Anne Blain threw the first jack and then a five rink competition between  President's and Vice-President's teams took place, which the former won (without, it has to be said, much help from the President's rink!)

bulletSeptember 2008  An update after finals day which saw 17 year old Ken Carlin win the Championship, causing much anguish among his elders, but obviously not betters!
 
bullet4th January 2006 At last , an update!  A photo showing the clubhouse in the 1960's before the lounge extension was added. Other hot news from the carpet bowls section is the restoration of the very popular Chip Convenor post which has resulted in food arriving late on Friday evenings. It is just as well that the wives of certain members do not browse this website and see how their best efforts at keeping their men in trim condition are being badly undermined!
