All these items of news are displayed in publication date order with the most recent at the top...

I am intending to do a Weekly Bulletin of events, results and other items of interest that happened during the previous week.

Here goes with the first one.

The Harry Wright Trophy got off to a good start last Monday. Good luck to all those taking part during the season.

There were good turnouts for both the Internal Friendly Matches, held on Saturday and the Open Day today.

Saturday was a bit cold, windy and slightly damp at times but was enjoyed by those who turned up.

There was a great turnout at todays Open Day. Although it was cloudy, happily the rain held off. Many thanks to all those who turned out to help introduce our visitors to the game of bowls. Hopefully we will gain some new members this year from todays activities.

Please accept my apologies for the late publication of this News item.

At the Club Spring Meeting, held three weeks ago, Barrie Horne, Brian Terry and Bob Curtis were granted Honorary Lifetime Memberships of Ringwood Bowling Club.

The presentation, made by Derick Faulkner on behalf of our President Sharon Varndell, of Certificates and Badges was made in recognition of their many years of loyalty, service and dedication to our Club.

Many Congratulations to the Three Musketeers B's, Barrie, Brian and Bob and may they enjoy many years of Lifetime Membership.

I have made a couple of changes to the website that I hope will improve your enjoyment and use, thereof.

The Photo Gallery page has been changed. The photos are still the same but the presentation is different which I hope you will find more presentable and more enjoyable.

The Fixtures & Events page has changed. There is now full filtering so that you can show just the Fixtures & Events that are of particular interest to you, in the calendar.

Any problems or comments, please let me know.
