Highworth Men again qualified for the last-8 play-offs of the Bowls Wiltshire 4-Rink competition when they finished fourth in the Northern section. Highworth will now play Holt, who won the Southern section.That match against Holt, will be played at Holt on Sunday 25th August and a coach Is being planned to take the team and supporters to the venue. Coach is proposed to leave from Highworth at 11a.m. and return from Holt at 7pm.
If anyone would like to go along and support the team then the coach fare would be approximately £10 and you can register on the form on the notice board in the club foyer. To aid planning & costing, early registration would be greatly appreciated.
With a disappointing sign-up of only 11 members for this event the decision was made to postpone it until the end of the season, when, it will take place on the last day of the season instead of the Captains’ Day, but under the format devised for that day.
It is hoped that the rescheduled event will garner considerably more support than the one which has been postponed.
Saturday July 13th sees a second chance to have a game of bingo at HBC. The event is due to kick-off at 7:30pm and Shaun Hicks will again be calling the balls!
This event is open to club members and their guests only. So, make a note in your diaries to come along and join in the fun.
Monday 1st July saw the club’s sponsors have an opportunity to visit the club and give a short presentation to attending club members about the products and services they offered. Hilliers, Asset Guardian and Franklin Memorials took the opportunity to attend and, following on from their individual presentations, took questions from the floor and made themselves available for one to one sessions with any members wishing to learn more from a personal perspective.
Despite a disappointing turn-out, the evening went very well. A big thanks to both our attending sponsors and our Management Committee for organizing the event.
The Etherington family have asked that it be announced that sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances, this year’s event and planned evening activities, scheduled for Saturday 3rd August, have had to be cancelled.
Hopefully, this popular event will return to the HBC schedule in 2020.
