PARIBC TURNS 30 YEARS OLD.

Did you know that in November of this year, 2019, the club will be celebrating a special occasion, when it turns 30 years old, (same age as your correspondent no less!).

Various things are planned, both on and off the green, so look out for notices that will going up towards the end of this winter season and during the coming summer season, highlighting what is planned, in terms of matches and events, etc., that will be open to all club members.  In the mean time, if you haven’t got your number(s) yet, for the daily £30 and other prizes, draws that will take place daily during the celebrations, then see the big eared beanpole bloke, none other than Tim Fletcher himself, as soon as possible.  There are only 300 numbers in the draw each day, so you are in with a good chance of winning a prize or two during the celebrations.  Equally, if you have any spare 1p, 2p or 5p pieces or any loose change, then please collect it all up and pass on to Mr Fletcher as well, as this will all go into the Birthday “pot” for another competition.  Then, come November, all PARIBC members will then be given the chance to win a share of the contents of the pot!

If you have any ideas / comments re - the birthday celebrations, then please speak with any of the following who are on the birthday committee; Linda Hoare, Dot Elliot, Sue Smith, Glynis Whatman and Dave Hood, they won’t bite!  Thank you for your support of the Club!

EXCLUSIVE LATEST NEWS FROM OUR WEST LONDON CORRESPONDENT

*********

PARIBC = 81 v Havering BC = 108 - Sun 17/03/19.

 

On Sun 17/03/19, PARIBC lost to Havering BC by 27 shots, (81 - 108), in a 6 mixed rinks social meal match.

Rink 2 = Val Green, Fred Martineau, Allan Buchan = LOST 12 - 17
Rink 3 = Glynis Whatman, Dave Green, Linda Hoare = LOST 09 - 15
Rink 4 = John Hall, Tim Fletcher, Derrick Small = LOST 15 - 19
Rink 5 = Viv Brightman, Maureen Osborne, Graham Hubbard = WON 22 - 14 (Top PARIBC rink)
Rink 6 = Peter Edwards, Rob Hall, Margaret Head = LOST 08 - 20
Rink 7 = Alan Head, Fred Linger, Dave Bushell = LOST 15 - 23

If you watched this very social match, you would have said that the Oppo were the home side, as they took to and found our “supposed” slowest green in the UK, from the off and held the lead overall throughout the match, which doesn’t bode well for when we visit their “fast” green in the summer fixture.  At the tea break, PARIBC were down on all six rinks and in the end, we only had one winning rink, but this was because that rink had a good talking too at tea, thanks in part, to them having the right person on their team to do the talking and this only winning rink, was rink 5, skipped by Old Mother himself, so well done you three ladies!  On rink 2, we are not sure if it was Fred Martineau’s lack of hearing or him failing to grasp the strong north of the border dulcet tones, of the clubs overseas bowler, McAllan McBuchan, who was skipping on this rink, that led to both of them failing to communicate for the whole game.  Still it provided many a smile for the rest of us!  On rink 3, the Club captain was still in holiday mode, whilst in the men’ changing room before the match, we heard all about Dave Green’s latest gym exploits, but don’t tell his good lady Val!  On rink 4, skip and winter comps. finalist I’ll have you know, Derrick Small changed his name to Derrick Short, whilst on rink 6 skip Madge failed for once to get the best from her men, (is she losing her touch, or still just hungover from the wine she won at dancing?) and on rink 7 we were reliably informed that the 3 men had no answer to the Oppo’s 2 ladies who were spot on all game.  At the post match meal speeches, there were some favourable comments about PARIBC and the club in general, from the Oppo captain, which was nice to hear!

Thanks to Ted Linger for coming in at the last minute due to a cry off and to his far better other half, none other than Helen Allen herself, (a lady with the smallest pair of female feet I have ever seen, they are tiny!), for coming in to support, along with the other cheerleaders, Janet Small, (with her booster cushion!) and Julia Edwards.  But once all 3 got chatting, it was like that current TV advert for the Nationwide Building Society, but thank you ladies, your support was much appreciated.  And hopefully by the time you read this, congratulations will be in order and Rob Hall’s good lady will have given birth and John Hall along with Gill and Trevor Hill, will be even prouder grandparents.  And before you ask, no, Gill doesn’t look old enough but yes, John and Trevor do!  Thanks, as usual, to Nicola, Adrian, (top champion golfer!) and boys / girls in the kitchen for the food and Katie Hilder for bar duties and operating her drinks / trays system!

Kind regards, your correspondent, proving yet again today, he ain’t no bowler and looking for a sign, any sign………no, not the new one above the club entrance!
