2017 GENERAL INFORMATION

(Earlier events deleted - Ed)

Our Summer 2017 season is underway and the sun came out to welcome us all for our opening weekend.

We welcome several new members this year and they include both new and experienced bowlers to the game.

We intend to include short periods of training on Tuesday afternoons and it is hoped that all members will appreciate the need to gain a greater knowledge of our game of Lawn Bowls to further that enjoyment. Remember to familiarise yourselves with our 'housekeeping' procedures concerned with the laying out and collection of equipment at the start and end of play/practice.

Anyone who still wants to play in our own club competitions, please ensure that your names have been entered on Jim's board so that all can be considered. Remember that matches should be completed by the dates shown!


MEMBERSHIP

Membership is open to all. Our 2016 subscription was £50, an amount that has remained unchanged for some 11 years. However, it will be proposed to raise that to £60 in April to cater for the additional expenses incurred in our new kitchen project.

Junior membership is available to under 18s and is free. However, green use must be supervised.

Please download this application form and pass it to the secretary, David Cowley or another member of the committee together with your cheque.

COMPETITIONS

2017 Competitions

The layout for our 2017 'in-club' competitions will be posted on the EVENTS page in Spring, 2017.

In each pairing, the top name(s) are 'Home' and responsible for initiating the arrangements, including the nomination of a 'marker' for the singles matches, with the 'Away' names. Similarly, the Ladies' Competitions grid will be made available in 2017.

Members are asked to ensure that their matches are completed by the date shown and that the clubhouse grids are up to date. The website will be updated as we go along.

WINTER ACTIVITIES

Outside of the outdoor bowling season, Chislet Colliery Welfare Association Bowls Club organises, and participates in, various indoor bowls events and activities.

Indoor Bowling at the main hall of the Chislet Colliery Welfare Club is popular and only costs £2 for the full evening, bowling on a roll-out mat. There are two sessions per week - Monday and Thursday - please be there at 7pm. We must have at least 6 players per session to cover costs. Please contact Michael Holmes or Tony for more information.

On Friday evenings from mid-September, Chislet Cavaliers Short Mat bowlers meet at 6.45pm at Herne Village Hall. Please contact Jim for further information on this winter pastime.

Various other matches are arranged and you are requested to watch this site for dates of those events as they are arranged and ensure that your name, should you wish to play, is given to the Captain for his consideration.
