Roll Up Roundup -28th August 2018

Firstly an apology to Glyn Williams for missing his name off the ‘roll of honour’ when announcing the runners & riders yesterday.   You will have gathered that there was a problem created by the traffic jam at the clubhouse computer station, but we have a solution in place [we hope] that should avoid a repetition at future qualifiers.

Although both are a little way off yet, a couple of gentle reminders:

Awayday:   If those of you that have ‘signed-up’ for the day at Wrag Barn on 18th October could now pay your fee ASAP that would help Laurence a great deal, and to this end we will be set up to receive your fees next week.   Those of you that have yet to sign-up don’t have to be shy either, as you will be able to sign-up and pay at the same time.

BHF Race-night:   Correction on this as the British Heart Foundation race-night will be held at Faringdon Bowls Club on 6th October rather than as previously announced – full details on the website or have a chat with Gordon Blake

Moving on;   if you saw a few low flying pigs yesterday it’s cos we had winner in the BoB competition, and the honours go to Peter Fisher – well done Peter.   Next week we move onto the 8th, so probably a chance for the pot to start rebuilding!!!!

As for the main event, the corrected results for the sweep prizes were as follows:


    Division 1 & Casuals Cups    
Group Position Name H’cap Score
1 1st Brian Rawle 10.0 38
1 2nd Glyn Williams 14.0 37
1 3rd Phil Toms 18.0 36 c/b
1 4th Stephen Sands 17.0 36 c/b
2 1st Mike Berry 23.0 42
2 2nd Bill Baker 20.0 41 c/b
2 3rd Nick Tomaszewski 19.0 41 c/b
2 4th Paul Wynn 23.0 40 c/b

Congratulations to Brian Rawle & Mike [Chuck] Berry, and apologies again to Glyn.   Next week we burst into September [already] meaning that the monthly competition cycle starts again with the final round of the Eclectic Trophy and there promises to be a slight recovery in the weather:   part sun, light breeze and temperatures in the low twenties – what more could you ask for.

And finally:   for future reports we will be posting directly onto the seniors website and will merely provide a link by Email when published – in case you were wondering this is to both encourage greater use of the website, while simplifying the processing of reports.   Which also reminds me; if you need to get in touch would you please use the above Email address pending a glitch in the ‘firms’ Email being sorted!!!!

Many thanks, and have a good one
