It is with great sadness to report that Audrey Merrington's husband, Jim, passed away in the early hours of last Thursday morning. He was one of Ringwood's stalwart bowlers of years gone by. Having retired from active bowling he was frequently seen supporting Audrey and the Ringwood Teams at the Club. A Celebration of Jim's life will be held at Cornmantle Court, next door to the Bowling Club, on Friday June 7th at 2pm. All are welcome. Anne Taylor.

Following the Clubhouse break-in on Thursday night it appears that the burglars left the scene with a nett deficit. It appears that all they took was the money from the reading books donation box but left behind two unopened bottles of San Miguel. Hopefully, they won't be back to collect their beer.

Congratulations again to Helena Webber who defeated Laura Kitcher 21-19 in her County Singles match yesterday.

Congratulations also to Mark Brocklebank who has been selected to play for Bowls Hampshire in the Middleton Cup. He successfully came through his trial match at Banister Park yesterday. His first match is next Saturday against Bowls Isle of Wight at Shanklin.

I’m back from holiday now but on Wednesday morning, yours truly was entertained at Bideford Bowling Club by Ken Lange. We had a short game, of 45-Up, as he was busy mowing the green earlier in the day and had a match in the afternoon. We had a good game which stood at 30-30 after 10 ends but, unfortunately, 4 ends later I’d lost 47-37. The game was watched by another Bideford member, Paul Debnam who recognised my Ringwood shirt. I had a chat with him after the game. An ex-Argyll member, he moved to Bideford a few years ago and fondly remembers his encounters against Ringwood in years gone by. I reeled off many names of our Ringwood stalwarts of whom he remembered well. See you soon.

Saturday 4th May. B&DBA Men's 1st Team at Home against Fordingbridge.

First team off to another very good start, thought I’d send you a copy of the result sheet. 73 shots to Ringwood (12 points) and 63 shots to Fordingbridge (2 points). As you will see we had three winning rinks and one lost rink, unfortunately the losers were my rink but we were up against Tom Warner and co  but what little we did score was enough to ensure that the three winning rinks scored enough for the overall victory so we are very happy
Regards Derick.

Geoff Bell, Dan Cookman, Steve Burns and Lee Croad won 28-9.                                                                                                                                           Mel Barrett, Fred Alderman, Ed Melton and Pete Ward won 21-9.
Brian Harrington, Barry Vaughan, Derrick Fulker and Steve Van Wyk won 16-12. 
Rob Huggett, Barrie Seymour, Bryan Tanner and Derick Faulkner lost 8-33.

Saturday 4th May. B&DBA Men's A Team Away against Fordingbridge A.

Sorry can’t send you the result sheet as the home team have that but can tell you that the score was Fordingbridge A 12 - Ringwood 2.
We lost by five shots overall 80 to 75. From a Ringwood point of view two rinks lost by one shot one rink lost by 3 shots and one rink won by one shot.
So we were robbed

Saturday 4th May. B&DBA Triples B Team Away against West Moors B.

Once again the trips were away and lost both rinks one rink 17-16 and the other 20-15 so once again a close game.
Cheers
