The 2018 Season gets underway
     
   
     
  Carole Taylor

Carole Taylor

First on the list is an apology to the President's Wife Carole Taylor
I had, it would appear, been spelling her name without the 'e' on the end of Carole.
She grabbed me warmly by the throat and said very curtly
"I am not a Christmas Hymn I have an 'E' on the end of my first name"
So there you are Carole, all corrected (However in by defence Carole, I had taken your
name from the official club handbook - so I think I will shift the blame)

Pound in the Pig Society

The Pound in the pig society got off to
an early start with a splendid effort from

He had the honour of being the first Banwell Club member

Good one Paul

Perfect Weather for Presidents Day 2018


Presidents Day 2018

Group Photo 2018

Well now, they do say that 'The Sun Shines on the Righteous'
The weather was perfect for bowls with club members bathed
in warm sunshine. A nice change after the cold snowy winter.

President Barry Taylor was once again in sparkling form, although
later on as you will read he did get a severe wrist slapping from
his long suffering wife Carole

         
  The Captain and President On the green Chris Wilson  
         
  Pauline Mabbutt the Spider Winner

 


It was, as I said a perfect 'Presidents Day' the weather was good, the green played well and gradualy dried out as the day progressed.

The match was followed by a splendid tea, thanks to Carole and her team and that Barrel of Trelawny beer certainly went down a treat.

So well done to everyone on a superb and successful day and all the very best to you all for the rest
of the season


Barry Taylor  
 


So how did President Barry Taylor blot his copy book?

 
 

Now it came to pass that the more observant club members
noticed that the badge on the President's Blazer was not an
official Banwell Bowls Club badge, but some RAF music badge

"Eh ooops" said Barry "I must have put the wrong blazer on"

At this point Carole Taylor went ballistic.

"Barry I had your bowls club blazer dry cleaned especially for today
So what are you doing wearing that blazer?"
"Oh for goodness sake you silly man"

"EH ooops" replied Barry

 
         
  Carol getting cross Carol still cross The telling off  
 

Never mind Carole we will show him the error of his ways

Snow !! What Snow?
         
  President Barry Taylor

Snow !! What Snow?

Just had an email and photo of our President who has recently been sunning himself just off the West Coast of Africa. So what was he doing there? Well his excuse was that he needed the sun to compose his speech for the forthcoming Presidents day. But we are not to worry as he will be along on the next weekend or so to give his expert advice on the preseason work being carried out.

I did send him a photo of us lower echelons who have been freezing our sphericals off while trying to travel around
But Barry did say "Ehhh oops not to worry because you will really appreciate my tea,
after drinking the 'Crap' that Paul Aldus serves up"


(His words not mine)

Barry, I suggest that when you do poke your sun tanned features around the
clubhouse door, that you have sufficient funds to buy us more
hardy types a drink
