Bob Coombs must be thanked for his "calling" expertise on Saturday April 22nd at the club Bingo Night, which was very well attended.The Fish n Chips ( or Sausage n Chips ) was very good indeed, it arrived on time, hot and tasty so well done to the Marlow Bottom fish shop.
For the Bingo afficionados the night was extremely successful with plenty of prizes being shared out, although for some lesser mortals it was a bit of a testing experience, trying to work out how all the bingo formats worked !
Don's Marlow based quiz was very good and a nice change from the standard general knowledge quiz.
A huge thanks go to the helpers on the night particularly Fred and George behind the bar and everyone who cleared up afterwards.
The Enrolment evening took place Friday April 7th and attendance was good and this was followed by the Clean Up weekend on the Saturday and Sunday.
The Clean Up process is always taxing after a winter battering and of course the success of such an event is the amount of people who turn up. On Saturday there was a good sprinkling of club members all helping with the various jobs that need to be completed. However Sunday was not so good with only a handful of people turning up, this has meant that some of the jobs were not completed.
So thanks must go to all those who turned up at the weekend, you know who you are, so the club thanks you for helping out and particularly Trevor Day who was the "Fat Controller" on the day, the clubhouse and grounds look very nice in readiness for the start of the season.
We are still looking for more people to help with cutting the grass edges, there is a notice up in the clubhouse please check this out. It means a commitment only once every 4-5 weeks.
The green opens for bowling on Friday April 14th.
