100 Club Draw - September's Winner
Congratulations to Martyn Scott who won the September 100 Club prize of £50! His number 43 was drawn by a member of the audience at the Jacuzzi Jazz gig so all was ’above board’smile

Months one and two have gone so there are now ten draws to go in this '100 Club Year'. There are still a few numbers left so if you want to buy and own one (or more) this month to be in the next ten draws they are available in the Pavilion for £10 each. 
Don't forget that if a number is chosen which has not been purchased the following month's prize will be doubled to £100.

Jacuzzi Jazz
Jacuzzi Jazz gave another great performance which was very much enjoyed by all who attended. A great big THANK YOU to those who helped to make this musical evening so successful:
  • To Debbie and Dave for doing the bar efficiently as usual and tidying up.
  • To Geeti and Graham for selling raffle tickets and tidying up.
  • To Glenda and Mike for 'popping in in the afternoon' and ended up helping me to set the room up for an hour!
  • And to Rosie for her sterling efforts with the food! There were lots a great comments from the audience and all the plates went back completely empty - the best sign of good food!

Friendly Match against Rogate
As the rain didn't pass over as early as forecast the afternoon wasn't looking very promising but we weren't to be daunted...we decided to have our refreshments before we started to play!

Although, after waiting for about 45 minutes, the green was still very wet and bowling was going to be difficult our visitors from Rogate agreed to go ahead with the match. This was a great decision as the whole afternoon was an experience which has taught us all a lot about handling different bowling conditions and, despite the on-off rain showers, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

We are very grateful to our visitors for agreeing to play and giving us a great match. It is one that will go down as one of our Club's milestones - we won the overall match 66-38smile

Last Twilight Roll Up for 2019 
What a great finish to our summer twilights. 36 bowlers turned up (best turn out yet). The atmosphere around the green was electrifying with some great bowling.

I would like to thank the ‘Twilighters’ for making Friday evenings such special events.
Finally, I would like to thank the ‘Twilighters’ for my card and gifts that I was presented with after the "prize giving". Great surprise.

First Friendly Matches against Portchester and Cowplain
After practising and playing bowls for 4-5 months we held our VERY first friendly matches this week.

The first was against Portchester on Wednesday. Unfortunately, we lost but it was a great experience for us. I am missing one score card so, as yet, can't give you the result.

On Saturday we played Cowplain and the weather was stunning – and the bowling almost matched it!! Clanfield actually won 1 match! Overall, we lost 57 points to 82 but what a result!!

Our winning team was: 
Steve Puttock, Michelle Upfield & Barry Carter who won 15-13.

Well done everyone who took part in these matches.

Remember practise exudes confidence!

  • Tracey Wilkins
  • Jenny Ashby

As is fast becoming our custom, everyone enjoyed a well-earned drink and convivial conversation to round off a great evening.

Hambledon Vineyard Wine Tasting Evening 
What a night to be had! Katrina, from Hambledon Wines, shared her knowledge about their wines as they were available for tasting. Hambledon Classic Cuvee, Premiere Cuvee and Classic Cuvee Rose were among those enjoyed together with the tasty cheese and biscuits. Wine flutes were readily refilled and a pair of vineyard tour tickets (donated by Hambledon) were won in the raffle.

I just want to say a big thanks to you for sparing your time and energy today to remove the "tatty turf". It already looks sooo much better and our Wendy is already figuring out how to make those manhole covers look a tad more colourful. The "man(persons) of the match" awards go to:

  • Nigel and Heather for masterminding the whole show and working so hard
  • Kathy & Glenda for keeping everyone fuelled with bacon butties and beverages. Superb!

Thanks all.
