Bowling Section A.G.M. & Presentation Night 2017

This will be held on Thursday November 9th from 7pm. If possible, all bowlers should make an effort to attend. Tickets for pie & peas are priced at £2 and available from Peter and Gail Haythornthwaite. Those bowlers who have won club competitions this season should return their trophies to David Union at the earliest opportunity to allow adequate time for engraving. Please arrange this with him in person, by phone (01422 378693) or e-mail (dcyew.1812@outlook.com).

Male Bowlers Required for Saturday Afternoons

During the 2017 season our Saturday afternoon Ballcraft Engravers Huddersfield League men's teams were hit particularly hard by the ill health of a number of bowlers. Consequently on some Saturdays we failed to raise 18 men to fill our two teams and had to forfeit matches. We are now actively seeking bowlers to help fill our teams for the 2018 season. If you can help, please contact our bowling secretary, David Union either by phone (01422 378693) or e-mail (dcyew.1812@outlook.com).

For 2017, if you were registered with another club in this league and found you were not being selected and would welcome a new challenge you would be made most welcome at Outlane. That also goes for beginners wishing to take up the sport. Thank you very much.

Summer 2017 Bowling Competitions
