Spring newsletter 2024

Spring has seeped it’s way into the new year, and despite the drizzle and rain, the nights are once again getting shorter.

The Bowling Green will open on the 16th April, short of floods and so forth, and we shall have an open day for people to come along and sample Bowling on Saturday the 20th April, 10 am to 1 pm. Why not come and visit us?

The first match is on 21st April, and it will be interesting as always since no-one will have bowled on grass for six months. Hopefully remembering which way up, and round, the woods go, it could be a good game.

Apart from some frozen pipes and a bit of a flood in January, the clubhouse seems to have survived the winter. The bar is stocked, the kitchen is ready to go, and we can get stuck into matches against other sides through the Tarmac League, as well as friendlies, and the club competitions themselves. All very exciting. 

Malcolm Morgan our green manager, is moving into a more advisory role this year, and so will shout from the side lines at the apprentice greens keepers, to make sure the green standards are kept up. Philip is stepping up to be the main man in this role; he has ear mufflers provided and is likely to manage the green marvelously with all the good advice from Malcolm, as well as the gratuitous advice from other members as we are of course all armchair experts; the mufflers may be needed for more than managing machine noise.

So, lots to look forward to and entering the new bowling season with plans and anticipation,

John Gaynor ,
 Kingsland Bowling Club Secretary
