***TUES 13/11/18 UPDATE***
PARIBC POTTERS RESORT TRIP 2019 = SUN 28/04/19 - Fri 03/05/19 (INCLUSIVE).
If there are any couples, (or people willing to share a room), then we have 3 bungalow “plus” rooms available for the proposed PARIBC trip to Potters next year, so availability for 6 more people, be you bowlers or non bowlers, all are welcome. Unfortunately, as per previous years, our single room allowance is very minimal and as such, there are no single rooms available. Thus apologies, but that is out of my hands.
The cost for the 6 days / 5 nights trip will be £391.00 per person, which although I appreciate is a lot of money, it does represent a massive saving on the actual cost price, if you were to go alone and not with the Club. And for what you get, it is very good value for money, (although I might be biased on that, ho, ho!).
Anyway, if interested, then please contact Tim Fletcher on his email address below or leave a message on his home number 01634 850186.

Medway Council and Gillingham FC
This year, Medway Council is proud to be the lead sponsor for Gillingham Football Club (GFC) in a special double anniversary year for the council and the football club.
Medway Council are now very excited to be able to offer Medway charities and community groups the unique opportunity to bid for free match day tickets for league games at the Medway Priestfield Stadium.
This season's match will be played on Sunday 6th January 2019
This Match is played annually in memory of the late Trevor Bishop,
and pits the Chairman's Team against the Club Captain's Team each Winter Season.
When Trevor Bishop was alive, he was very much a club man at heart and putting the Club first was high on his agenda, with matters both on and perhaps even more so, off the green. As such, his good lady, Sue Smith said she wanted something that would reflect this and felt it appropriate that there be a new trophy to recognise and reward the contribution of a person and / or persons, for their hard work and efforts in ensuring that the club continues to thrive and prosper both on and off the green. Thus the “Trevor Bishop Memorial Trophy” is to be an annual award for the Club member of the year. Each year’s recipient(s), to be decided by the Directors, (taking into account the views of the members), with the trophy to be presented at the AGM each year and the winner and / or winners name(s), will be engraved on the trophy for posterity.
For the first year, it was felt that it was appropriate that Sue Smith should be the inaugural winner and her name, be the first to go on the trophy. She said that Trev would be looking down, laughing along with all those at the match that had just gone and wondering what all the fuss was about, but very proud that the members were continuing to support and push the club forward in the right direction!
There is now a yellow bucket with member of the year award written on it on the front desk for members to have the opportunity to put in a recommendation for a member or members to receive Trevors member of the year award in January at Trevs match.
The glass trophy is displayed in the display cabinet in the dining room.
If you would like to recommend a member or members please use the paper slips provided and post in the box. Thank you.
THE LAST DATE FOR APPLICATION WAS THE 31ST OCTOBER WHEN THE NUMBERS WERE PUBLICLY DRAWN. ALL APPLICANTS CAN PICK UP A COPY OF THEIR APPLICATION FORM ON WHICH WILL BE THE NUMBER(S) ALLOCATED BY THE DRAW FROM THE COUNTER FROM 1ST NOVEMBER 2018.
THE FIRST OF THE 10 DRAWS WILL TAKE PLACE ON WEDNESDAY 7TH NOVEMBER 2018 AND SUBSEQUENTLY ON THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH FOR 9 FURTHER DRAWS.
THE PRIZE AMOUNTS WILL BE NOTIFIED ON THE SOCIAL PAGE ON THE WEB SITE, BY GENERAL EMAIL AND WILL BE POSTED ON A BOARD IN THE CLUB.
SHOULD ANY MEMBERS WISH TO JOIN THE DRAW AFTER THE FIRST DRAW ON 7TH NOVEMBER THEY MUST ASK MICK SMITH THE DRAW ADMINISTRATOR.
THE CLUB'S OPEN DAYS WERE HELD ON
SAT 22ND AND SUN 23RD SEPTEMBER.
Much appreciation to all those members who gave their time to last weekend’s two open days, which despite the poor weather, saw quite a few people come through the “new” doors, to have a look. Many thanks in particular, go to Dot and Dave Elliott, Lesley and Malcolm Clark, Dave Hood, Glynis Whatman, Lynette Stock, Fran Sutherland, Sue Smith, Gill and Trevor Hill and Pat and Harry Martin, for all their help and hard work.
Ed. The above report comes from the THIN Man and as usual it fails to mention his extensive contribution to the 2 days from which we have 20 possible members signed up for coaching.
