Wendover Bowls Club – January 2023

Good heavens Christmas seems to have arrived with a rush. I have only just got used to writing 2022 on cheques and here we are in 2023!! There is always a bit of a squeeze to get the internal matches fitted in before the end of the year. This time it has been hampered by the closure of the clubhouse for several days due to a surge in Covid numbers among the members. Let’s hope this precautionary measure did the trick. Happily we are now back to normal.

Mid December sees indoor hostilities between the Ladies and Gentlemen come to a head with an all day series of games. Last year the Gentlemen had an emphatic win so it was decided to give the Ladies a two shot start for each game. The plan was foiled however when the scores at the end after more than 1400 shots were exactly equal. This caused a problem as we only have a presentation cup for the winners and nothing for the unlikely event of a draw.

After the match we all sat down for a meal together which finished off a most enjoyable day!

The year will conclude with a New Year’s Eve party with games and more food. Those of us that are still awake will link hands and wish each other and, indeed everyone, a happy and healthy 2023.
