Captain's Bulletin

3rd July 2018

Thank-you for the turnout and support on Finals Day on Sunday. The results can be seen here. The heat was fierce on Sunday so it was sensible to stop when we did. As all observed the Green was rather fast so a good challenge for all concerned.

Early next week (w/c 9 July)  I will be putting up the lists for the Open competitions with the finals to be played on Sunday September 9th. As usual don't enter if you can't make that date. However we have a lot of time to play the earlier rounds so even if you are on holiday you will be able to get your matches in. Just to remind you that there are 4 competitions this time.

The Novice Trophy ----- for those who have not won a trophy so far [ and this includes the averages].
The Veteran's Trophy ------ for those 70 years and over.
The Open Doubles --------- pairs to be drawn by lots. 
The Open Singles/Hoult Trophy.

 Thank-you for your feedback about Captain's Day. The consensus is to reprise the format for the Ladies v Gents match. There will be 2 teams drawn by lots for a Captain's team versus a Vice-Captain's team. The match will be played in pairs with players bowling alternate thumb and finger to add a bit of fun to the games. If nothing else it will help you to learn about the Green. There will be a barbeque, cream teas and a bar! I will put up a list for you to sign up  for Sunday August 5th starting at 2.00pm.

 Wendy Oxley has donated a very nice, dark blue, Hallam Grange sweater. If you would like it contact me.

 And finally I have to mention our Works League B team who played at Bradway BC on Friday on their small and notoriously tricky green and had a clean sweep winning 10-0. A fantastic result and not surprisingly our players were rather happy about it! Well done.

Editor's PS - the return match between Bradway BC and HGBC Works League B Team at HGBC on 6th July resulted in a 9-1 win for HGBC on our now very tricky green.

Best Wishes,

John Turner,
      Club Captain

Other Information

If any newer members would like a roll up at a quieter time or a time at their convenience, please contact me (John Turner) and we will sort out a game. My mobile number is 07787554036 or email me.

As always general supporters are welcome at any Hallam Grange match. It is lovely to see people there.

   For all results see the Results Pages here.




    An ongoing reminder that in line with our do's and don'ts in the updated handbook, [and hard copies are in the pavilion], please continue to walk round the green in all matches rather than crossing the line of play. We all forget at times and most other teams have scant regard for it, but it is the Hallam Grange way.
