Women’s Celebration Pairs
Last Wednesday 13th January 2021, we held the Women’s Celebration Pairs (previously known as Mary Newton Pairs)
It was renamed so that we could celebrate all of the women that helped create our marvellous club and also everyone that has played for us in the past and all of the new members we now have.
It’s about now that I am wishing I knew whom Diana, the Phantom’s wife or even the Phantom himself, so that I can ask for assistance with my writing. I will persevere with the information and notes that Nancy wrote.
On Wednesday, Nancy Sutton and Carol Curtis were responsible for organising the event - I know that they had several helpers so many thanks to all of you for a wonderful job. The idea of having a catch-up and a cup of tea with the older members before we went out to play a couple of games was really fantastic. It was also lovely to have the trophies, plaques and photos all set up on a table to look at and talk about.
From the history that is available to us, we had 14 ladies designated as foundation members as at 10/3/1996, two of whom I have had the pleasure of meeting – Val Buck and Mary Newton.
Joy Atkins – You were instrumental in signing Nancy up at the club and it was a real pleasure to meet you as when I started bowling, Nancy gave me your bowls, bag and tape measure to use. They were a great starting point for me and once I was able to purchase my own, your bowls were donated back to the club for another person to have a great start. Nancy has your bag as hers had lost a wheel and I still have your tape measure.
There is so much that could be said about all of our lady members but I fear I will miss someone out so, thank you for being a member and please enjoy your game and lets share a few laughs when we get together.
And before I forget, we did play a couple of games on this great night and the results were:
1st place Kerry Stewart and Judy Saxon
2nd place Sue Willett and Roz Hahn
3rd place Pam Cocking and Martina Gericke
Well done everyone and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves.
Barbara, Ladies Match Captain
