Tim's reports on all the friendly matches, Internal or against other Clubs, will be shown on this page:-
With the imminent second lockdown looming this week, it was decided to bring the social night forward by a week and last night, saw the 3rd event take place. The usual hard work and efforts of Lynette Stock and John Lake, were rewarded by a bigger turn out, so thanks to all those members and friends who turned out to support it. Our delightful double act of organizers, certainly crammed a lot into the 2 hours last night, with the usual bingo, cards bingo and a 4 round quiz and name the flag competition, all keeping us and our brains, busy. The quiz winners were the table of Val and Dave Green and Meg and Dave Risbridger and it was also these two lovely ladies, Val and Meg, who were the big bingo winners on the last game, so congrats to them. As said before, bingo and quizzes might not do it for you, but the evenings are very social and certainly provide a good laugh, during these troubled times, along with bringing in some much needed revenue into the PARIBC coffers. More myriad stories from Mr Lake, our genial host, certainly kept us amused, or should that be, our “genitalia” host, after one tale of an incident with a French exchange student, a jock strap, a surfboard and an injury to a mid to lower body, male part???!!! A case of one hung low, or was that just the name of the 2s / 6d Margate tortoise?! If we do come out of lockdown in December, then it is hoped that the next social night will be on Tuesday 08th December 2020, but watch this space, as to how the next 4 weeks pan out. Stay safe one and all – PARIBC (04/11/20).
Another close fought game at the weekend, in this annual match, but the socially distanced trick or treat revelries, went the way of the PARIBC Men, by 25 shots, who won on all but one of the 6 rinks. The only winning Ladies rink was skipped by Patricia Wells, (with Irene Ashby and Sue Whitaker), but the game, (sorry, afternoon of chat!), on their rink, went on so long, that the Club had already gone into lockdown before it had been completed, so their rink score was declared void! The top men’s rink was skipped by Eric Clive, who was with Phil Stradling and Normal Bushell. All in all, a very enjoyable afternoon of social bowls and fun, but the high spirits and feel good mood was deflated, by the inevitable news, late in the day, that the Country would be going back into lockdown from Thursday, meaning the Club will be closed once again and for how long, is anybody’s guess? Unfortunately, as they say, it is, what it is, we knew it was coming and we have to roll with it, but we do have to thank all those volunteers at the Club, who have put in the hard work and effort, for the past 10 weeks of “good times”, (since re – opening) and got us back to a bit of normality, if only on the bowls front at least. We look forward to these times returning, either next month or early in the new Year. For today’s match thanks go to Sonia Bignell and Linda Hoare for doing the teas and cakes and to Pam Fincher for doing the bar. I would also like to thank Jenny and Derek Abbot, Eric Clive, Mick Day, Lina Foster, Doreen and John Langley, Mike Smith, Brenda and Len Troost, who generously gave over a shed full of 1p, 2p, 5p shrapnel for the PARIBC pot, very much appreciated ladies and gents!
Stay safe – Tim Fletcher (02/11/2020).
