We are now all experiencing unprecedented times which are going to be hard to
manage, but we are a strong Club with a fighting attitude and will come out of
this period with an even greater togetherness. Yes it is a huge disappointment
to have lost this Season but life is more important. I am sure with the
Committee we have, they will always be working for your interest at heart.
If anyone has a problem, please do not hesitate in contacting either Brian
Knowles or Myself and we will endeavor to assist you in any way we can.
I wish you all good health, stick to the guidelines and remember there is
always a tomorrow.
another reminder about our RACE
NIGHT ON FRIDAY 28 FEBRUARY at the IOW Community Club. Theracesstartat8pm so it would help
if you are there by 7.45pm so that Graham, Greg and Steve can explain how the
evening will run.
John will be in the kitchen between 6.30pm and
7.30pm with his usual choice of menu available for those of you who cannot be
bothered to cook!
Please feel free to bring as many friends as you
want – half the money ‘invested’ is given out in winnings and the other half
goes to club funds, plus you will be able to ‘buy your own racehorse’ in the
final event of the night!
This will be our first social before the outdoor
season so please make every effort to come along and meet up with everyone
again to catch up on the gossip.
Cowes Medina Bowling Club have
recently held their Presentation Evening at Cowes Community Club. It was very
well attended and Darren Griffith was their Guest of Honour who presented the
awards. Darren and his partner Jack Berry reached the finals of the National
Pairs this year.
The A Team came runners-up in Division One and were also runners-up in the Ridett Cup and reached the semi-final of the L.C. Guy Shield.
The B Team ended their season in Division One very strongly which meant they kept their place in this league.
The C Team made great progress and finished a creditable fourth in Division Two, only two points behind the eventual winners.
The D Team came runners-up in the afternoon league Division One and also won the Harris Cup.
The Ladies re-enforced their league position and welcomed several new players to their squad.
Fred Sly, the outgoing President of Cowes Medina, thanked all members and wished the Club continued success.
Graham Thorne, Social Secretary, commented, ”We are a Club moving in the right direction. We are attracting new members all the time and are always looking for new bowlers. We are a very sociable club, and will be holding various events to raise Club funds, and also to keep the Club spirit moving forward.”
