Preparing for the opening of the green
Thanks to all the members who turned up and helped Mick prepare the green for next Tuesday's opening despite a lack of Eleanor's bacon and sausage sandwiches. Thanks to David for taking the pictures.
MBC AGM 2018
Investing Glenmore with the chain of office proved the be a challenge as our incoming President had to bend very low for Linda to reach.
A packed Pavilion for the 2018 AGM witnessed President Linda perform the final task of her superb year representing our club, when she installed her successor, Glenmore Slack . The most effective AGM that I can recall lasted just 45 minutes, in which time we received the Annual accounts, accepted the numerous reports, installed a President, listened as Ivan Wood gave the President's prayer and presented Eleanor with Honorary Life membership. All this was made possible thanks to all the chairs of the sub-committees preparing written reports, which were made available to the members, who were spared the tedium of listening to endless verbal renditions. Those unable to attend the meeting will find copies of the reports and accounts on the notice board.
The full 2018 fixture list is available on the Friendly Fixtures page
The President's Charity
President Linda presented a cheque for over £1200.00 to Jackie Simpson the ward sister of the Kings Mill Dementia Unit. She was supported by numerous members who made the effort and turned up looking smart in their club uniform. Linda gave Margaret (Tiggy) Tye a bouquet of flowers to thank her for her numerous trips to the hospital with tubes of 20p.
The pupils from Farmilo School enjoyed a wonderful warm, dry morning on our superb green. 36 Yr5 pupils were coached in the basics by Eleanor and Mike. The attitude of the pupils was a delight and Eleanor said that it had been one of the most enjoyable experiences she had had in many years, remembering why teaching had been so rewarding. Thanks to Roger for driving the QE Academy van and collecting the pupils from their school.
I have set up a "closed" web page on which members can post information and photographs. Mansfield bowling club will get you in if you request admission. I hope that it proves useful for the members. If you are not registered please let me have your email address.
