Message from Your Club Captain

Well what a season we have had. We have only lost 6 matches which is brilliant and all matches have now been played.
 

I would like to thank you all for supporting these games and also for playing when

I was short, and sometimes you were playing each other if the visiting club came

short of teams.

 We look forward to next season and hope you all have an enjoyable summer.

See you then.

Linda Hoare
Club Captain

2018 / 19 WINTER SEASON SOCIAL MATCHES REPORT, FROM A NON - BOWLER.

Now I know stats don’t always paint a true picture, but they are there in black and white and as such for your delectation, delight and utter boredom, below and attached, are the all important facts and figures for the 2018 / 19 social match winter season, which has just been completed.  The Club had a relatively good season under new leadership and from the 31 matches played, won 25 and lost only 6.  It was disappointing to have 7 games cancelled due to either us, or the Oppo, not being able to raise a side and this lack of availability at times, seems to be an ongoing problem.  It was also sad to see that some of the basic etiquettes of the game are also on the wane and we, as a club, are as guilty as anyone.  This is something that perhaps needs to be highlighted, addressed and emphasised, when the coaching sessions are run.

Huge thanks go to Linda Hoare who captained the Club this year and perhaps found it a bit different from when she had the role of Ladies Captain, in years gone by, with a lot of new and regular bowlers having to play out of position, as we suffered from a lack of experienced back end bowlers.  But everybody has to start somewhere, so this was valuable experience, especially for the newer bowlers and will stand them in good stead going forwards.  The hard work and effort Linda has put in cannot be underestimated.  Thanks also go to Dave Elliott and Tim Fletcher for deputising in the role, when Linda was unavailable.  Thanks to all those 103 members who turned out to represent the Club and to all those who helped Linda with the numerous “other” jobs, that made it easier for her to get on with her role as Captain.  Biggest thanks go to Nicola and Adrian and boys / girls in the kitchen for the meals all winter and to Sue Smith, (Bar manageress) and her helpers, Katie Hilder, Malcolm Clark, Dot Elliott, Dan Smith, to name but a few.  Thanks are also due to Glynis “Guinness” Whatman in her role as Fixture Secretary for all her hard work.  Also mention must be given to the regular lady supporters and honorary members of the “Old Girls Collective”, namely Julie Edwards, Janet Small, Gloria Smith and Fran Sutherland who came to nearly all the matches, not only watching and supporting, (in between chatting and knitting, ho, ho!), but helping at times with the drinks and with the meal tables and the good natured banter that emanated at most games.  And if I have forgotten anybody for roles, then apologies, but thanks to you as well!  Much appreciated!

Enjoy your summer, whether it be indoors and / or outdoors and please continue to support the Club, (it needs you!) and roll on late September, when the new winter season starts!

Up the Arthur!

Kind regards, from your correspondent, a man who brings nothing to the Club but a loud, annoying, shouty voice!!!

2018 / 19 WINTER SEASON - PARIBC SOCIAL MATCH STATS:-

Of the scheduled 38 matches, (37 home / 01 away), in the 2018 / 19 Winter season, PARIBC played 31 matches, (31 home / 00 away), won 31 matches, (31 home / 00 away), lost 06 matches, (06 home / 00 away) and 07 matches were cancelled, (06 Home / 01 away) and 103 different members represented the Club in these matches, of which 33  of those members, played in at least 09, (approx. a quarter), or more of the scheduled matches.  Tim Fletcher played the most matches, 28, closely followed by Derrick Small, who played in 24, Linda Hoare who played in 22 and Dave Green, who played in 21.

In the “Player Of The Season” competition, (you had to play at least 09 matches and then your best 09 scores were taken), the winner was Tim Fletcher, who just pipped Margaret Head by 02 shots, with her dancing partner, Maureen Osborne waltzing into third place.  As you can see, Madge played 11 games less than the very lucky winner, so this was a cracking effort by her to rack up a big total and statistics aside, I think all agreed, she was the best and most consistent player all season and as for it being a “fix”, it is worth noting that it was this year’s winner’s first time back in the top two, since 2012! The top five were as follows:-

1st. Tim Fletcher = played 28 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 542; total shots scored in best 09 matches = 247

2nd. Margaret Head = played 17 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 359; total shots scored in best 09 matches = 245

3rd. Maureen Osborne = played 19 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 418; total shots scored in best 09 matches = 244

4th. = Dave Green = played 21 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 430; total shots scored in best 09 matches = 236

4th. = Linda Hoare = played 22 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 422; total shots scored in best 09 matches = 236

4th. = Dave Hood = played 13 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 295; total shots scored in best 09 matches = 236

 

In the “Shots Difference” competition, (you had to play at least 09 matches and then your best 09 scores were taken), it was the same winner and runner up combo as above, Tim Fletcher and Margaret Head and the top five were as follows:

1st. Tim Fletcher = total shots difference scored in best 09 matches = 168

2nd. Margaret Head = total shots difference scored in best 09 matches = 166

3rd. = Dave Green = total shots difference scored in best 09 matches = 157

3rd. = Linda Hoare = total shots difference scored in best 09 matches = 157

5th Maureen Osborne = total shots difference scored in best 09 matches = 154
