Sat 18/05/24: PARIBC v Sevenoaks IBC.

This match was subject to a very late in the day cancellation by the Oppo, who cried off on the Wed, before the match was due to take place on the Sat.  Thanks to the hard work and efforts of Trevor Hill, an internal roll up was hastily organised and 30 members enjoyed a fun filled afternoon, which also ensured that the Club coffers didn’t lose out, due to a lost fixture.

Mon 13/05/24 – Fri 17/05/24: PARIBC at Potters in Norfolk.

PARIBC had its usual late Spring, week away, at the Potters resort in Norfolk and 55 members and friends, had a very successful week, both on and off the green.  We managed to get 7 teams into the last 16, of the weekly bowls comp., 3 teams into the quarter finals and 1 team into the semi – finals.  Alongside this, thanks to the efforts of all 48 bowlers, the Club also won the Top Club Trophy, which is now proudly on display at the Club.  Hopefully a full report and pictures of the week away, coming to a website, near you, real soon?!

Wed 08/05/24: Civil Service BC v PARIBC

This match has been cancelled by the Oppo, as they have problems with their green.  We wish them well, as they try to rectify the situation and get the green back open and playable as soon as possible, so as to not lose too much of their home summer season matches.  Thanks to all those PARIBC players who put their names down for this outdoors match.  The next scheduled outdoors match, is away to Cliffe BC, on Sat 22/06/24 and the call up sheet for this match, is posted on the noticeboard at the Club, so sign your names up now, if interested.

Sat 27/04/24: PARIBC = 109 v Angel IBC = 90

First match of the summer season, saw us just about get over the line, against Angel IBC, by just 19 shots.  Off green matters again dominated the day, as the bowls kinda took a back seat, which is not meant to be the way, to show the Club in a good light?  Top rink was the triple of Glynis Whatman Jo Green, (and her illegal measure?) and Dave Randall, so well done to this trio.  We had 4 winning rinks and only 2 losing rinks, one of the latter, was the usual, loss for the Capt’s. rink, but today this was a drubbing of the highest order for his rink.  Sack the Captain…Yes please!  For this home match we had 10 reserves and going forward it seems we have numerous reserves, for the upcoming home matches, so unfortunately all will have to take their turn on the reserves bench.  You may not think it, but this process is done in a fair way for all and if any grumbles with it, then please speak with the Capt.  It would be nice to have the same probs, for the away matches team selections!  Thanks to Gemma and Maxine for the tea and biccies, to Dave Sutherland for taking the dosh and to Fred Linger, for proving that it doesn’t matter if it is winter or summer, he will guarantee at least one wrong bias…Kerching!!!
