Welcome to Warwickshire Women's Bowling Association
August 1st Missive.
We move along with this extraordinary year, a Presidential year like no other, passing dates in our diary of County Finals, President’s day, The Nationals & so forth but no – there but merely to be rubbed or crossed out.
I do hope that those of you who feel able are out supporting your clubs, entering as much as you can & keeping the spirit of our wonderful game.
We have had sadnesses along the way, challenges & amusement but be assured that your Officers are working hard on your behalf & are now, with the 2021 Schedule all but finalised we look forward to filling some obvious gaps in duties, taking delivery of our new strip & hoping for lots of entries for next year’s competitions.
Although Avon Valley members are busy preparing their Club to cater safely for the indoor season we have now heard that the Indoor County has cancelled all its games for the 2020/21 season so we will not be holding a Christmas match this year.
We are still hopeful for the AGM to be held in real life rather than virtually. Also Stratford BC is hoping to have an afternoon picnic around the green when the President will present certificates to the Lockdown Competition winners!
I send you all my very best wishes, please keep fit & well for our 2021 Season when I hope that we will come out of our blocks up & running!
Remembering my Mantra: Upwards & Onwards……
President Mary & your Officers.
The County Officers send their condolences to the family and friends of Jean Goodman who passed away on Friday 17 July. Jean was awarded her County Badge in 1991 whilst a member of Tally Ho! Bowling Club and subsequently Erdington Court where many will remember her. She always had a smile on her face and was willing to encourage new bowlers. Jean won many competitions, regularly played for the County as well as the BDWBA.
