2016 Social Events

We are a bowling club, but we are also a people club and there is no rule against having fun!

These events are important not only as enjoyment (we hope) in themselves, but also as they help us get to know each other better, providing an added dimension to our 'playing' lives and making us stronger as a club. They also provide crucial additional funds for the club (new changing rooms do not come cheap!). So please support as many events as you can during the year -  there's no fun if you're not there!

There is a full programme of social activities (often tied-in with internal bowling competitions) organised for 2016 as shown below, and we are always open to suggestions for additional activities, or feedback on the scheduled events; just contact our Social Secretary, Ray Cole. Ray is on the lookout for members to help with these events so please do not be shy in telling him you want to help. And his arms are always open to receive donations of prizes of any description for raffles!

This is the current programme for 2016. It will be updated from time to time so please look at this page regularly to note any changes. Where food is involved, menu lists are posted on the social events noticeboard in the Pavilion about a month before the event, so make sure you sign up in good time.

Each event appears in the Event Calendar; more information is available by clicking on the relevant Calendar entry.
