Presidents Day – Letter from our President Louis


Dear Member,

I am so grateful to the executive committee for supporting my plan to have a President’s Day ‘with a difference’ this season. As a club we are combining the day with a Fund Raiser for my designated charity, the Alzheimer’s Society.

 Outlined below is the timetable of events for Saturday 7th September:

COFFEE ZONE: From 10.00 a.m. to 12 noon we will be serving coffee and scones in the McQuay Pavilion. This is a chance to invite family and friends and all other section members from within CIYMS to come along, try out the green (flat sole shoes please, bowls provided) and enjoy a coffee with us.

REFRESHMENTS:12.15 p.m. to 1.45 p.m.  Second bowling session for family friends and members. Sandwiches will be served in the McQuay Pavilion during this session.

The morning will be quite informal. Play for a while, then relax and have a coffee. Someone will be on each rink to give some structure to the play and offer assistance to any newcomers. 

FORMAL TOURNAMENT: 2.00 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. for all pre signed-up playing members.

Throughout the day, a collection box will be on site to accept all donations towards Alzheimer’s research. It would be my hope that as a club, with the help of our friends, we could raise £1000 for this worthy cause. As a gesture the club together with one of our sponsors, Regatta Ltd, will be covering the cost of the evening meal for members and guests, therefore every penny donatedbefore and during the day will go to the charity. As a guideline we are suggesting a minimum donation of £10 and I would encourage everyone to spread the word far and wide so our friends and families can support this effort by our club.

Please set some time aside on Sat morning 7th Sept and join us for coffee and take the chance to get on the green with family and friends. Please come and be assured of a warm welcome. Let’s make the day a great success and let us ALL play our part in supporting this charity which is working so hard to achieve a breakthrough for a disease that knows no boundaries.

See you on 7th.
