Heyford Bowls Club – April 2020

Our last three matches in the ‘WARDINGTON LEAGUE’ have been very successful. A hard match at Moreton Pinkney saw us win on one mat and lose on the other. Unfortunately we lost on the final aggregate score. However a really good win at home to Middleton Cheney on both mats. This led to the final aggregate score in our favour by the magnificent score of 74-8.

The ‘LADIES PAIRS’ was played on Saturday 14th March. The knock-out matches produced some really good bowling. An excellent and close final saw Liz Davison and Pauline Thackray beat Eileen Everard and Jean Cullin by the score of 5-4.

We have a few matches coming up now in quick succession. A very popular fixture the INDOOR v OUTDOOR will be played on the 26th March. The Mixed Singles will be played on the 18th April. Both matches will start at 1.30 pm.

Good support has once again been maintained on our Wednesday bowling sessions.

I always knew that nuclear bunker I built in the 1960s would come in handy one day. I’ve promised my wife that this crisis will all be over by the time of our wedding anniversary on 18th June, but when I hear of national organisations suspending all meetings for four months, I fear that my deadline may be a trifle optimistic.

This is my first missive for The Prattler this calendar year, and it should have been telling you of the dates for the enrolment night, the fish and chip supper, the spring quiz, the working party on the green, and fixtures. Instead all I can report is they are all cancelled. This leaves the residents of Heyford free to spring clean their houses and make their gardens immaculate. At the end of the pandemic I will be round to check.

In the meantime, take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

PS Don’t go to the shops specially to buy us an anniversary card. Use one of the ones you panic bought at the start of the pandemic. They’re up in the loft. On top of the toilet rolls.

Heyford Bowls Club – May 2019

Indoor

The ‘LADIES PAIRS’ Competition was played on 23rd March and saw six teams contesting for the trophy. After a number of elimination games of six ends, the two highest scorers would then proceed to the final. This produced an excellent standard of bowling, which was maintained throughout the competition. The final was won by JEAN CULLIN and PAULINE THACKRAY over ROSEMARY DUNKLEY and PAULINE GROOM, by the score of 11 to 3.

Our last competition until September, ‘THE MIXED PAIRS’ will have been played on the 27th April, which will be reported on in the next issue. A very entertaining fixture, the OUTDOOR v INDOOR has unfortunately had to be postponed until a later date.

The ‘WARDINGTON LEAGUE’ matches are now finished and were enjoyed by all
who took part.

We have to admit that our green is not looking as pristine as we would like it. A combination of winter weather conditions and an unexplained reason why our seed did not germinate as usual has led to some bare patches. However, we are hoping the warmer weather will improve the situation.

Our home matches in May are:

Saturday 4th Northampton BBOB 2:30 pm

Sunday 12th Kingsthorpe 2:30 pm

Monday 20th Roade 6:30 pm

Thursday 23rd Daventry Town 6:30 pm

Saturday 25th Internal Drawn Triples 2 pm

On Sunday 26th we will be holding an Open Day from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm, when
anyone, any age, can come along and try bowls. All you need are a pair of flat
soled shoes (although we can supply these as well). Everything else we provide.
Give it a go; we’ll be pleased to see you.
