Captain’s Address

I am now firmly into the second year of my captaincy.

We now have a full complement on the Bowls Committee. We are pleased to welcome Terry Quinton as Vice Captain and Derek Mawson as Match Secretary. The Bowls Committee continue to attend the Board Meetings, as guests, and liaise closely with all Board members to take the Club forward.

All Cats Teams Captains in place, David Roberts and Dudley Davies are Captain and Vice Captain for the Lions, Terry Quinton and Derek Mawson for the Jaguars and Bob Cockell and Malcolm Sprawson for the Tigers. Clive Langan and Bob Bailey have agreed to run the Winter League team. We are disappointed to have lost several members prior to the start of the season, the team leaders will be looking for replacements, so please put your names forward, your Cats team will need your support. Also I would ask you to be prepared to play for the Winter League if selected.

Losing members is not unique to Benitachell, it is a similar situation in most bowling clubs, the number of members is decreasing, however we have been fortunate in attracting several new members who are keen to participate in both the bowling and social side of the club.

Earlier in the year we cancelled two events due to an insufficient number of entries to make the competitions viable and enjoyable. In order to attract more players to in-house competitions the Bowls Committee are, together with the cooperation of the Board, introducing new ideas for bowling events and are waiving the entry fee for the Club Championships. We are looking for your support and enthusiasm to carry these ideas forward. I know we have members who only want to play Club Day and obviously that is your prerogative, but give the less formal events a try, put your name down for the Touring Side events, they are so much fun.

We are still seeking a CBUMA representative, can anyone help please?

If you have borrowed any bowls from the Bowls Store and still have them, would you let me know as I need to do an inventory of stock.

Please drop me a note if you have any suggestions for improvement that you would be prepared to carry forward if adopted. I look forward to hearing from you.
