JUST ANOTHER REMINDER OF THE PRESENTATION NIGHT SAT 20TH NOV 7 FOR 730

Katie Whittaker will be performing after the presentation of prizes. there will be a buffet

All paid for by the club so why not come along and enjoy a good night

We still require a few keyfobs back in to get the door entry system up and running correctly

The old lockers have been removed and the refurbishment will be starting soon .

We would like to thank the community council for there help it getting a micro grant of 100 pounds , this will be used to add to the summer of well being programme that was run by the Dumyat centre , we borrowed equipment from Stirling indoor bowling club last year the grant will allow us to buy our own

The BAR will be open the usual 1 till 6 today also on thus this week , the pool team has a free week but intend to get a bit of practice in so why not pop along for a game and a beer

Katie Whittaker has been booked through Encore music to play at the presentation night on Saturday the 20TH of NOVEMBER, she plays an acoustic set then more lively covers after the break .

Lorna is doing the buffet would be a great help if you could add names to the sheet to let her know how many to cater for

It would great if all price winners turned up on the night.

We have replaced the cellar cooler so hopefully save a bit of money and the bar area should be a lot quieter to work in, we plan also to fit a new dishwasher to make it easier and improve glass cleaning,

We will decide on whats happening with the locker room soon and make ask for help to decorate . many hands make light work,

the pool team is at home this week so why not pop in for a pint , they are still looking for players if there is anyone interested

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR THERE SUPPORT OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND DEBS FAMILY

I have just sent away 400 pound to the British heart foundation on Debs behalf that was collected at the funeral thank you for your donations , Deb had some heart issues and was nearly on the path to getting things sorted out

The pool league has started and the club will be open every second Thursday , will update details when i get the fixtures , so why not pop in the Europa league games will be on the big screen .

On the club front we still hope to a have a presentation night on the 20th of NOV please pop into the club and add your name if interested .

The locker room is nearly empty in preparation for decorating and the key fob saga is getting closer to having 50 working , if you could try and fit your bags in your new lockers it would be most helpful , we have bags and bowls that look like they have not been used for years .

BLOG ON A FRIDAY

Its with sad news . Deborah who has written this blog for a while passed away yesterday after a battle with COVID.

While not a member of the club she made a massive contribution to the administration side of the club , with letters , notices and filling in grant forms,

Her writing skills were excellent , she would be shaking her head seeing my attempt to do this .

RIP Deb

I will try and continue her blog to try and update members but will be no where near the same standards

There is a sheet on the Notice Board in the Clubhouse for the above so if you are planning on being there can you please put your name down along with numbers in your party. This will help us with catering, Thank you!

The Pool Team starts their season next week, so the bar will be open on Thursday 21st October and there will also be League Games on that night. The Bar will also be open on Sunday as normal.

The Saga of the KeyFobs continues and an Engineer will be back out next week. So if you have a FOB could you pop it in the Club Letter box (with your name) in an envelope before Wednesday afternoon 20th October. Hopefully we can get the issues resolved once and for all! Watch this space!!
