HOST SYSTEM


Evening Drives

 

There is a Host System operating for Monday and Wednesday evening sessions and for the Tuesday and Thursday afternoon drives. So even if you do not have a partner you can still come along and be sure of a game on these occasions.

 

The host system does not operate on week 3 Mondays, this being a teams night.

 

If you would be willing to volunteer for a place on the host rota please speak to Jessie Dent (Mondays), Ray Foster (Tuesdays and Thursdays) or Susan Hoyle (Wednesdays) or leave a message for them at the bar.

Latest Club News


Yorkshire Mixed Pairs Final

Congratulations to Lauri and Margaret Andrews. They came third in the final of the Yorkshire Mixed Pairs held on 17th June. This is a competition that is open to any mixed pairs from Yorkshire, so very well done, you two!


Defibrillator Training August 8th 2018

The Club is about to purchase a defibrillator and on 8 August the Red Cross will be running a one-hour training course at the Club covering use of the machine and other related first aid matters.. It will be held in the downstairs room at 5.30 p.m.  There is no charge and we are looking for volunteers from across all club drives so that there will always be someone on hand who can use the machine immediately. Reportedly the defibrillator is very simple to use.


The Use of the Timer in the Main Drives

At their most recent meeting the Committee decided that the trial use of a timer in the main drives had been a success and this will now become standard practice.


Facilities for the Disabled and Gentlemen's Cloakroom

The conversion of the downstairs gents to a disabled cubicle is underway. The plumber is currently working on the gents cloakroom conversion and will be fitting in the work around other jobs. The works are scheduled for completion by the end of July and there will never be an occasion where there are no facilities available.


Winners of the Vera Walton Trophy

Many congratulations to Sheila Kaye and Clive Naylor - this year's winners of the Vera Walton Trophy.  They played an excellent match on 13th June, beating their nearest rivals by nearly 6%   Well done Sheila and Clive.


The EBU Corwen Trophy

The  Corwen Trophy competition is a prestigious event where the leading pairs from each county are invited to compete against each other.  This year the event was held in Daventry over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd June with 92 pairs from all over the country participating.  Stuart Davies and George Bak from our Club came 12th overall and they had the highest score of the Yorkshire County pairs.  Gill Copeland and Steve Blackburn - the other pair from Bradford - also did well in this top national event.  Well done to both pairs - we are proud of you!!


Please donate

Hazel Greenwood will be raising money by running a bottle stall at the Denholme Gala on 7th July.  All proceeds will go to the Felix and Rupert Greenwood Trust Memorial Travel fund which was set up in memory of Hazel’s sons who died in the Bradford City fire along with their father.  It is a very worthwhile charity and has made numerous travel awards to disadvantaged children who live in the area.

If you can contribute by leaving a bottle – of any shape or size - in the box at the Club it would be much appreciated.  We hope that you manage to raise a considerable amount, Hazel!
