Palmerston Men beat Atherley
On Friday 21st, four of our top men bowlers from Palmerston overcame a four from Atherley in the London and Southern Counties BA "Single Rink" competition. The score was 18-15 over the 21 ends, indicating a high quality match. We next play either Victory or Banister Park.
National competitions at Palmerston last weekend
Congratulations to the Hampshire Mens Liberty Trophy team who beat Wiltshire at Palmerston on Saturday 22nd by 111 - 102, a margin of 9 shots. Three rinks won, one drew and the other two lost. Unfortunately the next match will be away against either Gloucestershire or Berkshire.
Sadly the Palmerston ladies lost their Yetton Trophy match against Arun 63 - 88.
Don't buy that computer!
... until you read my latest blog article - see the red link in the left hand column or go straight to the blog by clicking here: Russell's IT Tips.
Why? Because it might free you from exposure to scams and viruses, and also make sure you don't lose your files when things go wrong. Are these things a real risk? Yes viruses and junk software are becoming an epidemic - you only have to read my previous blog article about one of my bowling friends' very worrying experience. Unfortunately this is more and more prevalent.
So have a look - you might be surprised by the recommendations and you'll be glad you looked.
Draw now made for Ladies Competitions except Drawn Triples
The draws can be seen in the Competitions section.
Entries for the Drawn Triples were low so the Ladies Competition Secretary has extended the entry deadline to the end of November - only a few days left. If you are able to play in this competition please put in an entry (the form can be downloaded here - please ignore the deadline shown on the form) or speak to Marilyn who will add your name.
Saturday afternoon booking may be withdrawn
Earlier this season it was decided that the club will open on Saturday afternoons even when no Friendly or other official match is scheduled. This gives members another opportunity to organise a rollup for themselves or to play a Club or National Competition game.
Space for competitions can be difficult to find, especially during the week in the season up to Christmas, as a lot of people are involved in the early rounds. So please make use of this time as there are costs to keeping it open, and if it is not used the Board might review the decision.
Now it appears that this initiative is not being taken advantage of, so unless we get a late flurry of Saturday afternoon bookings, this decision will be reversed and the Club will be closed on Saturday afternoons from January.
