Spring newsletter 2023
With the Opening of the Green for roll up practice on the 22nd April, and the Presidents Versus Captains competition on the 23rd April, Season 2023 is about to start with a bang.
Hopefully people have these dates free in their diaries. For those who go on holiday in the Summer, the Fixtures list is able to indicate when there are quiet times, but people may want to be here for 7th May, for the Joe Wade competition, 18th June for the Sandy Gough day, 1st July for the Summer Party, 5th August for the Bert Bengry and 20th August for the Anniversary Cup.
The Mens’ League games on the Wednesday are all detailed as are the Tarmac league fixtures and the friendlies. As soon as these are in the book, sign up for them to give the Captain a chance to pick the teams in good order.
The Tarmac away games will generally have only tea and biscuits on offer for after match refreshments, so you may want to take your sandwiches. This appears to be because of a difficulty other clubs have with providing refreshments. Kingsland will show them how it should be done by having sandwiches, an open bar, and tea available. Apart from not wishing to lower the standards, and hoping to keep games social as well as competitive, without refreshments who will stay to put money behind the bar, and buy raffle tickets?
To that end, Irene will be asking for volunteers to help with the provision of such refreshments. Jane will be round to ask for cleaning volunteers, and Chris will be interested in budding bar staff. The Spring Clean took place on 14th March, so cleaning will be maintenance from here on in.

Just to draw your attention to the Audit Certificate on the main notice board, and the copies of Committee meeting minutes in the plastic folder by the bar, to look at in the clubroom, please don’t take away the signed copies in that folder.
Please do look up the website for pictures, and up to date notices. If you access this on a phone, the three bars on the top left gives access to the menu. On a computer the menu bar appears under the opening picture.
