Palmerston Cup Final - Sunday 8th March 6pm

Last Sunday saw the semi-finals of the Palmerston Cup. This competition is played on Sunday evenings and is contested throughout the Winter season by outdoor clubs in the area (for more details see the Palmerston Cup page). The semi finals were a tense affair and the eventual winners Lockswood and Eastleigh Railway will now play the final next Sunday 8th March at 6pm. Also playing will be the semi-final runners-up who will battle for 3rd place. All these teams will collect prizes as will the two teams who just failed to qualify for the semi-finals.

After the finals are completed there will be a prize giving and buffet, where our sponsor, Kestrel Guards Ltd, will present the prizes and the trophy to the winner. The local press is likely to be attending and taking photos. Not to be missed.

League Team Re-Registration for Winter 2015-16

It's too late now to re-register your league team for the next Winter season. Unless the League Secretary takes pity on you! Applications to form new teams will be accepted from 15th March. For details and form please see the Leagues section.

Summer Season 2015 - new arrangements

This year we are planning to use the full league computer system to run the Summer Leagues. This means skips will need to write their scores on the League board at the end of the game as they do now for the Winter leagues. Also please note that we are requesting that teams choose a team name (this makes it less likely that mistakes will be made when posting scores). Playing schedules will be available when the leagues are complete.

Roy has posted the Summer League forms in the usual place on the windows of the office facing the green. Please add your names if you wish to play. If the leagues are full (14 teams) please speak to Roy (or any other committee member) so that he can gauge if there are enough people for additional 11:30 - 1:30 leagues.
