100 Club Draw - January
The 100 Club draw for January took place at the Pavilion during the Friday Board Games on 31st January. The number drawn out was one that has not been purchased. This means the unclaimed £50 will be added to February’s draw, making the total prize for the winning number at the end of February £100.

Rabbie Burns Rollup
It was a bleak Scottish mist that settled on the rinks at Clanfield as we prepared for RABBIE BURNS Roll Up yesterday morning (25/1).
15 players turned up and all had a great time, until we started bowling!!
Our first game was to bowl nearest to the little Scottish teddy.  The winner was Brian McFoster!
The games were competitive and very close although it was a tad wee cold! (Thank goodness kilts were optional!!!)
Welcomed by all was cock-a-leekie/scotch broth and tomato soup with warm rolls.
It was our first fun roll up of 2020.
I would like to give a special thank you to Ian Oldfield who set up the rinks, and Kathy Trippick and Jo Lougher for their invaluable help in the kitchen plus great support from Byron and Joce.

Friendly Match against Waterlooville
Clanfield BSC hosted their 5th friendly match on Wednesday 6 November 2019 against Waterlooville. For the first time since we opened in April 2019 we had play on all 8 rinks. It was a great sight to see 56 bowlers playing in a really friendly way.

18 ends were played with a welcome break for tea and biscuits and a chance to warm up a bit half way through. You could hear the laughter and feel the fun rippling through the gentle rolling hills of Clanfield!

I would like to thank Waterlooville for helping us to relax and making the match fun. 

As you can imagine it was a lot to organise and could not have run smoothly without the help of the following:

Mike and Glenda Smith, Kathy Trippick, Jo Lougher, Barry O’Leary, Neil and Brenda Morgan, Carol and Barry Carter, Tracey and Howard Wilkins, Alan Dickinson & Peter and Linda McWilliams (Waterlooville)

Final result: Waterlooville   184    Clanfield    81
(Clanfield won 2 rinks)
The score belies a closely fought battle against Waterloo...Ville!!

As Waterlooville have years of experience and we only have months I think everyone who took part should be congratulated on a very respectable performance.

100 Club Draw - October
The draw was made at Saturday's Quiz Night by one of the quizzers but, unfortunately, the number drawn has not been purchased so the unclaimed £50 will be added to November’s draw making the total prize for the winning number at the end of this month £100!

Quiz Night 
We had another well attended and fun Quiz Night on Saturday 2nd November with a couple of music rounds well put together by one of our Members, Tony Glover. Those rounds were particularly enjoyable so thanks to Tony for that. We will have him back! There was a slight downside to the evening as it was actually too “well attended” as we had more people turn up than I was informed about and therefore planning for. The result was that, although the atmosphere is great when the Pavilion is so full, it was fairly cramped and warm. So, for future quizzes, I will limit the capacity to 55 and I will make it a ‘ticket only’ event - which I've been trying to avoid so far. With the Christmas party coming up there’s unlikely to be a Quiz Night in December but we will plan one for mid-January after we’ve recovered from Christmas and New Year.

Halloween Roll Up
The Pavilion was decorated for Halloween and we held a roll up in the afternoon. Many bowlers entered into the 'spirit' of the day coming in masks or with painted faces so we all started the afternoon in 'high spirits' !!

Our triples winning team was Tom Costello, Michael Trippick and Diane Pickford.

The best mask competition was won by Alan Dickinson.

We finished the afternoon with tea/coffee and some very tasty spookey cakes!!
