MATCHES AGAINST LOCAL CLUBS
Bill Budge, our fixture secretary, managed to arrange the following fixtures following the committee decision to play matches, complying with the COVID 19 guidelines, against local clubs: –
Imber Court            2:30pm Wednesday 19th August at Home, 3 Trips Greys
Bishop Duppas        2:30pm Sunday 23rd August at Home, 3 Trips Whites

Bishop Duppas        2:30pm Wednesday 9th September Away, 3 Trips Greys
Esher                     2:30pm Wednesday 16th September Away, 3 Trips Greys

Typically, it poured with rain on the first date, but we managed to re-arrange the match for the following week, Wednesday 26th August at Home. The matches on 30th August & 2nd September will be run by Andy Hughes and the final matches on 9th & 16th September will be run by Adam Willson so be sure to inform them of your availability.
At the time of going to press we have played 2 matches. The first against Bishop Duppas, we lost 47 – 58, although the Lady Captain’s team won on her rink, thus we lost on 2 rinks and won on one. We had more success in the rearranged game against Imber Court. Winning on 2 rinks and losing on one and winning overall 56 – 45

OPEN FOR BOWLING
The green is being used for general bowling and I would like to thank everyone for following the “Green under Social Distancing rules”. Monday club night from 6pm to 8pm is popular and with the bar open, members are taking the opportunity to come and enjoy their bowling and putting the world to rights over a glass of something afterwards.

CORONA VIRUS PROTECTION
We have a hand sanitizer mounted by the door to the cabin so please use it when entering the cabin. There are hand sanitizers also mounted by the entrance doors to the clubhouse so if you are entering the clubhouse for ANY reason please use them.

COVID 19 H/C SINGLES
The competition has now reached the semi-final stage with Aneta Thompson due to play Malcolm Studholme and Adam Willson to play the winner of the quarter final between Stuart Chalmers and Mike Grimshaw.

The final will be played on Monday 7th September prior to the club-night at 4pm. Do come along and watch prior to the club night. The bar will be open early.

MIXED 2 WOOD TRIPS – Sunday 6th September 10:00am for a 10:30am start
We have 26 entries for the Mixed 2 wood trips on the Sunday that was originally allocated for our Finals Weekend. Any one who has not yet signed up and would like to play please contact me Ken Homewood (kenhomewood@live.com or 01483-282384) ASAP
Just to remind you, the day starts at 10am with the draw and bowling starting at 10.30am. Coffees, teas and biscuits are included in the entry fee of £2.50 and there will be prizes for the winners of both the main competition and the plate competition. The winners will formally be presented with the Trophy on the day.  Sadly, unless the Corona Virus restrictions are relaxed, we will not be able to run a BBQ

BAR ROTA
My thanks to all volunteers for coming forward to help run the bar. It has been a success and Dave Bardsley, Andy Hughes and Wendy Beaney, the bar team, are to be thanked for all their efforts in organising the management of the bar with the draft beer deserving a special mention.
