& MEETING MINUTES

 

The Club Committee met on Friday 13th September and the minutes may now be read now on this website in the members' area.  This section password protected so, if you are a member and need a reminder, please contact a Committee member.

 

Among the topics covered was the Members' Guide and an amended version was accepted which is also now available here and a paper copy will be placed in the clubhouse within a few days.  Bowlers are invited to read it and note, in particular, the revisions to the advice concerning footwear and mobile telephones.  

 

IAN COMPLETES HIS MARATHON WALK

 

The Skegness Standard reports:

 

Almost nine months after he set off from Skegness to walk the coastline of Great Britain for charity, Nottingham’s Ian West returned to the resort, completing his epic journey.

Ian, 64, took on the challenge in aid of The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.

 

He set off on October 24, planning to cover 7,000 miles. However, due to many places being unsafe to walk and access, the total was closer to (a still impressive) 4,000 miles.

The effort has to date raised more than £5,000, but money is still coming in via Ian’s JustGiving page (find it at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/banjo7k).
 

Welcoming him back to Skegness last weekend was The Mayor of Skegness, Coun Mark Dannatt, the resort’s mascot, the Jolly Fisherman, and members of the Skegness branch of the Guide Dogs charity.

LENNY MATTHEWS MEMORIAL TROPHY

 

On Monday 24th June, twenty-four bowlers gathered at the Club to contest its annual four-wood singles competition for the Lenny Matthews Trophy.  All the early rounds consisted of nine-end games.  The morning matches saw half of the entrants eliminated and a further round, in the afternoon, reduced those left to four.

 

The next morning, two semi-finals were played with Jim Bateman beating Geoff Wright and Geoff Worrall winning against Lorna Bateman.

 

After lunch the final was played in the more traditional format with the first player to twenty-one points taking the title.  After a fluctuating game, Geoff Worrall beat Jim Bateman by twenty-three points to twelve over twenty ends.

 

At the presentation, Geoff Worrall explained, for those who did not already know, that the late Lenny Matthews had been the first member of the Club.  He had been a lovely man and Geoff was delighted to win the trophy which honoured him.
