There is a sheet for those planning to attend and cost £33 per person. Those who reached the county finals, Bannerettes, KL and KLV winners and runners up would be expected to attend. I for one will be attending.

County Competitions 2019
When you complete the form with the correct entry fee please put this in the secretary's box. I am beginning to collate the entries. Keep them coming...…

The county competitions entries for 2019 will be on display in the men's changing room. The price this year is £3.90 per person apart from the unbadged which is £2.50 and you will be eligible to play in a number of disciplines including:-

Tips for a successful entry
When filling out the form it is the skips responsibility to ensure the pairs, triples and fours are filled out with complete team members names and entry money. If the remaining team members also wish to enter the singles, then they must submit separate entries with appropriate entry money.

Every competitor must receive one RCBBA handbook which will be given free but to assist me do please tick the box and number needed to complete the entry form. 

I look forward to receiving many entries for the above.

Many thanks

Paul Melhuish

Secretary

 

COLLECTION OF SUBSCRIPTIONS ETC: – 2018

After full discussions, the Committee have decided that the Bowling Club Men’s Section annual subscription would continue @ £70.00 (juniors £20.00), again this coming season.

The cost of match snacks/sandwiches will be £2.80. The charge made by some away clubs may be more; the captain will put the amount you will have to pay on the team sheet.

There will still be a £1.00 subscription fee to pay, when selected to play in Kennet League and KLV League matches, home and away.

Your Committee members will be available in the Club to collect subscriptions from 6:00pm until 8:00pm during weekday evenings on the dates as follows;

It is expected that most of these invited members will pay their subscriptions during these times and it should be remembered that, in accordance with Club Rules, they would need to be paid by 14th APRIL in order to play in any matches or roll up on the green i.e.
NO PAY – NO PLAY.
