 SOCIAL ACTIVITIES IN 2020 - from the manager

You may recall that we placed two lists at both entrances recently, each containing a list of activities that we asked you to 'sign up' for. The response was discussed at last night's Management Committee Meeting and it was felt that we should try to encourage Social activities within the club, given the amount of names we had on the forms.

As a result, we intend to resurrect the Presentation Evening this year but incorporate a Quiz Night. The idea will be to present prize winners with their vouchers whilst encouraging people to come along and take part in a Club Quiz. This will probably take place on Friday 1st May 2020 but will be confirmed.

A Games Night would add something and we will have Dominoes, Cards and other Board Games available to the membership on one nominated afternoon each week from 2pm and once nominated evening each week from 7pm.

Therefore our GAMES AFTERNOONS will start on TUESDAY AFTERNOON from TUESDAY 11th FEBRUARY 2020 at 2pm in the bar lounge area and GAMES EVENINGS on THURSDAY NIGHTS from 7pm commencing THURSDAY 13th FEBRUARY 2020. Just turn up - no need to book!

We are also looking into the logistics of a Poker Night - watch this space if you're interested.

 Coach's Corner:
Are you a one handed bowler  
   - by Howard Jarrold

Should you be as competent with forehand as with backhand ? If, as a coach I pontificate about being as good on one hand as the other, I will receive a lot of flak from those who answer ' It doesn't matter. It is up to the individual.'
My view is that if you can play either, then your skip will be a happy skip, but if you can't then life is more difficult and that can lead to difficulties within teams. So, is the answer yes or no ? I say yes.
There is no reason at all why you should not be as good with one as the other simply because they are both played the same way.

Over 60's League Lincoln A v Stamford  
   - by Brian Jackman

Over 60's Lincoln A.
Game 10 away to Stamford
Another disappointing day at Stamford losing by 14 points to 4.
At 5 ends Lincoln led by 8 shots. They increased the lead to 14 shots at 10 ends. At 15 ends the lead had dropped to 10 shots. The last 6 ends went the way of Stamford scoring 38 shots to 19.
Is this the end of our long run of successive league wins. Will need two big results in the last games to have any hope of retaining our title.

Stamford 14 Points (105 Shots)
Lincoln A 4 Points (96 Shots)
