A MESSAGE FROM DERECK
A few points to note
1. I’ve moved all the Outdoor Winter Carpet League and Winter Pairs Competition information over to the Competitions Board.
2. I’ve put the side for the first fixture of the Winter Carpet League on the Competitions Board so please tick your names if you are available. I haven’t put any reserves down yet; I’ll sort that out once I know who (if anybody) can’t play.
3. It’s not too late to put your name down if you are interested in playing
4. I’m going to the Club on Friday morning and will close off the Winter Pairs Competition entrants then so please get your name down by then if you are interested in playing. It’s going to be an Open competition so your partner could be anyone (male or female). I’m going to organise it into 4 mini leagues so everyone will get 3 or 4 games each depending on number of entrants and then top of each group will have a semi-final and final (on same day). It will be on the basis that you are assigned a match for a 3-4 week period and you will have to organise your game sometime in that period. Roll up sessions are proving very popular so please not during roll ups. Roll up will take precedence if you do.
With so many people joining for the winter, the Committee thought it would be interesting to run a winter competition similar to our summer competition. .

The spectators enjoyed coffee and cakes and then lunch was enjoyed by all at the end of the games. Jan Puttock and her team served bacon butties and hot dogs together with a range of cakes.
A large raflle added to the proceeds and the President thanked all who had helped to make theday such a success.
