You Have to be IN it to WIN it

Five hardy soles turned up (plus 2 more who just turned up to see which idiots had actually turned up!) at the Club this morning for the final Friday Roll up  before the Club closes again due to the Coronavirus restrictions. The weather was fine but the flooded pistes were going to be a bit of a problem.

By 10 o’clock the skies had gone grey again and it was obvious that rain was not far away. Any thoughts of play were abandoned and so with nothing better to do the December 100 Club Draw was made – it had been intended to do it on Sunday at the Xmas Melee.

You could have cut the tension in the air with a knife – this was it, the Big One, El Gordo, the one we had waited for all year – not only was there the normal draw but also the Xmas Bonus Draw. After the usual discussion about the order in which the prizes should allocated as the balls were drawn it was decided (as it always is!) that the first ball would be the the Bonus. The draw was made and the results were as follows:

Bonus £110.00 Pete Kensett
1st Prize £62.50 Mike Wigg
2nd Prize  £20.50 Peter David
3rd Prize £10.25 John Edwards

The 100 Club is proving to to be the major fundraiser for the Club which has allowed us to carry out a number of projects to improve your Club even when income from other sources has been much reduced in this very strange year. The level of prizes increases with the number of members who enrol in the 100 Club. It is interesting to note that based on this year’s club membership 32% of 100 Club members are from outside the Club whilst only 47% of the Club members are signed up to the 100 Club. If you not in the 100 Club, please think seriously about joining so that we can further improve the facilities at the Club. One project we have in mind, which would have been of great benefit this year when congregating indoors has not been possible, is an open sided covered extension to the front of the log cabin. It can only happen though when we have sufficient funds. So please consider joining* and remember:



and a Merry Christmas and a better 2021 to all our Members
