Sad News

Just to let you know :


Daphne McNamee, a faithful house member until a few years ago passed away recently. Her mother, Annabel Hewitt, was Lady President in 1964.
Some of the longer-serving members will remember her fondly.  We extend sympathy to her family.
A Memorial Service is being held in Knock Methodist Church on Fri 28th August…. the time has not been confirmed as yet. I will inform you when the information is available.

Start of mixed rinks

Hi Everyone
Mixed Rinks will NOT commence tomorrow evening (10th Aug) as there are some NIPGL Competitions on the Green.
However, they will commence on Mon 17th  at 6:00 p.m.  The early start is due to CIYMS STILL CLOSING AT 9:00 p.m. The mixed rinks will take place on both Monday and Tuesday from that date as long as Guidelines permit.
The format will be 5 rinks of mixed triples, with the first 30 members to arrive and sign in:  anyone arriving after the first 30, will be given priority listing for the next session if they so desire.
If you have a preferred evening it would be helpful if you would let me know: some have already expressed a preference.
To prevent handling the discs the organiser for the evening will draw the discs and inform members which rink they are on.
After a few sessions, the situation will be reviewed and adjustments made accordingly. 
                                                             ………………………………………………………………………………………..
As only a small number expressed interest in the Club Competitions these will now not take place
                                                              ……………………………………………………………………………………………
The Mental Health Charity match will be held on Friday 14th Aug at 2:00 p.m. when Neil Booth will play 3 ends against Richard Sweeney on his travels around bowling clubs in Ireland, visiting as many Clubs as possible, to raise funds for mental health.
The Club has already contributed £200 including President Irene’s contribution to the Charities.  Anyone who wishes to contribute may do so via the link on the IBF website or can give it to Neil on Friday. 
                                                               …………………………………………………………………………………………..                                                                  
Finally (I’m sure you are glad to hear) … This year’s Annual Dinner has been cancelled.
                                                                …………………………………………………………………………………………
