That was a very special
year that was....

A new member in memory of a club stalwart.

Brian Hamshere often spoke of his ambition to create a "bowls man", but sadly was unable fulfil his ambition, so Terry White did it for him and called him "Brian".

Article submitted by member of the Green Team titled "Nail Care".

This is a story with a happy ending. It is not about my fingernails but the Net Nails! I came for a roll up recently and nets were requested to be in use. I carried two sets of net nails with other equipment from the shed and got part way to my rink and realised I had been spilling the nails out of their wooden blocks! I had thought they would be tightly in the wood blocks but over time they have become a little loose. Horrified at my clumsiness I began searching and back tracking to find the missing nails. I found most of the nails but two nails seemed to have disappeared! I know there is a very serious consequence if a nail gets caught up in our green machinery so I was very determined to find the missing nails. Suffice to say I found them – two had come out as I left the equipment shed and had actually bounced back under the shed. By getting down as all good bowlers do! I was able to see under the shed entrance and there were the missing nails. So there is a happy ending but this is a cautionary tale to us all to be very careful with the nails. A missing nail on the green or in the surrounds could lead to a cost of many thousands of pounds in equipment or personal damage and nobody wants that sort of stress. So, please be careful.
