Dear Members

News from the Green

March is upon us and preparations to prepare for the start of the Bowling Season are going ahead.   
The green is coming along nicely, the Scorecards are purchased, the Bowls Stickers are ready to be collected.  
The Fixture Availability Sheets are now ready for your name in the Club House.  

Opening Day 22 April first game 23 April against Bookham.  Don’t forget to fill in your subscription form ASAP and send to Bobbie. 
Fixture cards will be available to members later.  However, the full list of Fixtures is on the WBBC website. 
The maintenance team are working hard to get the club and its surrounds ready and if you have any spare time on a Monday morning,
please pop down to see if you can help.

AGM - Vote on uniform and change to Monday nights roll-up start time.

There will be no change of uniform this year.  However, we would ask that playing members, representing the Club,
at any Fixture, play in the correct WBBC uniform.  Please no jeans. The Fixture Card will show a G or W to denote colour to wear.

Grey trousers, crops or shorts with a club shirt for league, weekday and evening games with club shirt.  
Have a look at the online bowls shop to check the correct colour of grey.

White trousers, crops or shorts with a club shirt or white polo shirt if club shirt not bought yet.
This is for mixed weekend friendly fixtures and Ladies games.

Monday Night roll-up will start at 17.00.  Those members not able to start playing at 17.00 are still welcome to play amongst
themselves at 18.00.  The start time will be a trial for this season.  Food will be available for both start times.   For the roll-up mufti can be worn. 

Quiz Night – Saturday 25 March

There will be another Quiz Night on 25th March please let Wendy know if you want to
