Message from the Club Captain

Well once again we see the start of another winter season next week.
It kicks off on Saturday 30th September with a new friendly fixture, PARIBC Away Vs Grattons. 
The following weekend we have another friendly match this time at Home to Ford Sports Basildon.
As you all know this season I have agreed to be Club Captain and, after 9 years of Trevor’s excellent captaincy,
I have big boots to fill. I can never be another Trevor so it is my intention on making the Captain's role my own.
If at any time during the season you have a problem or are upset about anything please talk to me
and I’ll do my very best to rectify the situation.
Unfortunately, at times, I will have to stand down players or ask you to play out of position for some of the matches.
That said, I will be picking the teams as fairly as possible, there will be no favouritism or malice as everybody will get a game. 
This year I am introducing one change with regards to Wrong Bias.
Everyone will still get a certificate, but you will also be fined 50p with all proceeds going towards the 30th anniversary fund.
Ask Dave Hood & Sutherland (they have already paid a tenner up front!!!! Only joking guys).
For all those who have entered Club, County, and National competitions may I wish you good luck.
If you need to contact me please call my mobile 07780-704712 or email jbbeastie@hotmail.com

VIC ASHBY MEMORIAL MATCH - SUNDAY 12th NOVEMBER 2017

On Sunday 12/11/17, the Vic Ashby memorial game was held, as 7 rinks battled it out, in a highly competitive match, played in the right spirit, with plenty of noise and good natured banter being both given and taken, with perhaps the most fitting tribute, being the amount of people that were bowling too short, (but that is how they normally bowl?), with most needing, “just another yard”, as a certain Mr Ashby used to say!  Following the post match meal, PARIBC Chairman Dave Elliott recounted stories and anecdotes remembering Vic and then Vic’s son, who attended with the family, also spoke very eloquently and favourably about his Dad, Mum and PARIBC itself.  We then raised our glasses and toasted the memory of Vic.

The rink scores on the doors were as follows, (home team names listed first on each rink) and as you can see, the home team triumphed, but only just, by the close margin of only 16 shots, as they scored 135 shots to the away teams score of 119 shots

Rink 2:
Jim Masters, Dave Clare, Mike Rawlings, John Langley = 14
Val Hart, Heather Allen, Terry Marsh, Dave Squirrel Cook = 15

Rink 3:
Jim Green, Maureen Osborne, Rose Gibson, Graham Hubbard = 18
Val Cook, Roger Old Spice, Ron Gee, Charlie Wells = 19

Rink 4:
Irene Ashby, Guinness Whatman, Arthur Hart, Dave Elliott = 11
Pat Carr, Fred Martineau, Allan Buchan, John Lake = 20 

Rink 5:
Sue Smifffffffff, Derrick Small, Roy Forgetful Baston, Dave Hovis Warburton Hood = 22
Tony Jewell, Doreen Langley, Tim Fletcher, Dot Elliott = 19

Rink 6:
Christine Heward, Gill Hill, Terry Marks, Dave The Hat Sutherland = 31 (Top rink)
Lesley Clark, Jean Lacey, Trevor Hill, Danny Cox = 12

Rink 7:
Chris Day, Bill Gnome Howlett, Harry Martin, Malcolm Clark = 23
Chris Davis, Pat Martin, Trumpet Brian Rance, Les Cordell = 17 

Rink 8:
Bryan Allan, Fred Linger, Madge Head, Tom Heward = 16
Lynn Korff, Sheila Pamplin, Jackie Cordell, Sylvia Day = 17

Other highlights / lowlights, (you decide!), from the day include:-

The saga of Dave Hovis Hood losing his mobile phone over the weekend.  Now this was a 2 minute story that the crusty bloomer managed to turn into an hour and a half monologue, to anybody who cared to listen.  And you just couldn’t make it up as apparently, he had dropped the phone in his new bread making machine and only discovered it when he went to slice up the loaf he had made that day!  Forget all those comedy programmes of putting a file in a cake to smuggle into prisons, here we have comedy gold!

Those playing on rink 3, discovering that trying to get the attention of Maureen Osborne to bowl, when she is in full conversationalist mode, were fighting a losing battle.  But that is part of her make up and we wouldn’t have her any other way would we………then again, ho, ho?!

Danny Cox’s team on rink 6, not scoring a shot until about the 16th end, beating the previous record of being nilled by about 14 ends!  But it did mean that their oppo, Christine Heward, Gill Hill, Terry Marks and Dave The Hat Sutherland, were the top rink on the day and theirs will be the first names to go on a plaque, to be attached to Vic’s Bench, which is at the scoreboard end of the green, so well done to them!

Dot Elliott on rink 5, turning a drawing game into a fire - a - thon!  But then to be fair, she often had no option, as her number 3 kept giving shot(s) away to the Oppo after he had bowled!

New member Gill Hill being announced as “Graham Hill”, (renowned British racing car driver), at the post match presentations!  “Don’t worry I have been called worse”, she said, as she collected her alcoholic winners prize!  Equally hubby Trevor Hill said she is a fast lady, (interpret as you will, ho, ho!), but he was more then happy, having won a bottle of Port in the raffle.  So the Hills were alive with more than the sound of music!

Finally the mass confusion, as per normal, when the organiser of the “fiddles” tried to explain what to do, to 55 very confused bowlers.  And when even one of youngest, of the oldest, namely Graham “Old Mother” Hubbard, questions what is written down, then we know we are in trouble!  All fiddles should be banned, along with the organiser, was the general consensus, but those actually profiting from the day were as follows.  Winners of the rinks fruit raffle, (as drawn by the County and National Bread Maker of the Year, Dave Hood!), were Heather Allan, Rose Gibson, Guinness Whatman, Doreen Langley, Gill Hill, Pat Martin, Jackie Cordell and Adrian Fitt.  Winners of the spiders were Madge Head, Malcolm Clark and Charlie Wells.  Winner of guess the combined totals was Pat Carr, just 3 out and winner of guess the shots difference was Val Hart, who was spot on with the exact figure.  So well done to them all!  Meanwhile there were 3 wrong biases on the day, bowled by Dave Elliott, John Lake and Derrick Small, with the latter, paying for all of the 3 fines, into the PARIBC 2019 Birthday pot!

Thanks to Nicola, Adrian and boys / girls in the kitchen for the usual superb meal and we are happy to report that the kitchen bed saga has been resolved.  In honour of Adrian spending so much time both at and in, the sink, they have gone for a water bed and we hear that it has already been christened, (or should that be cruised in?!)  But as to whether or not Adrian wears his marigolds in bed for protection and / or pleasure, we have still to find out and I’m not sure whether it best to ask the man himself or Nicola to garner this info?!

Thanks to Sue Smith and Malcom Clark for doing the bar and also huge thanks to Terry Marks who came in at the very last moment due to a late cry off due to illness, but biggest thanks go to all members who played and supported this day.  Now does anybody know where I can find another yard from?!

Don’t forget the Boccia challenge on Sat 16/12/17 and sign your names up for the triples competition on Sat 30/12/17.  If on your own, sign your names up and teams will be formed around and with you.  And don’t forget at the triples comp., one person on the day, will win a car or the cash equivalent!

Kind regards, your correspondent, a very prosperous fruit and veg stall holder!
