Coach's Corner:
Duties and rink discipline  
- by Howard Jarrold

(if you like this, click here for more Coach's Corner)

When I put pen to paper I do so in the hope that someone out there reads those pearls of wisdom. I hope they are interesting , informative and sometimes controversial enough to stimulate discussion. My last post certainly was that albeit not intentional. A big thank you to those of you that have taken the time to speak to me about it. What did surprise me was the number of people that felt that it wasn't really a coaching issue. My view is that swearing comes under the etiquette , dress code and expected standards of behaviour umbrella that we as coaches are remitted to cover.

Cath Smith  
- by Danny Brown

(if you like this, click here for more Noticeboard)

After a long battle with illness I'm very sad to report that Cath passed away in the early hours of this morning (Thursday 29th November 2018).

Not only was Cath a top player in her own right, with national and County titles aplenty, but she was a terrific organiser and did tireless work for the Ladies Section, the Club in general and the County Bowls Associations. They will miss her as much as we will and our condolences go to Mike at this sad time.

I will update on funeral arrangements etc as they come to hand.

Post Christmas Club Competitions  
- by Danny Brown

(if you like this, click here for more Noticeboard)

Our experiment of Free to enter competitions with a plate competition for first round losers was well received. It resulted in a number of new competitors and entry numbers are up. The down side however, has been the number of conceded matches! This has been a huge disappointment and the club has lost quite a sum in rink fees as a result of these.

This is an experiment and it appears that the scheduling of some triples and fours matches at 8.30pm was not well received and had much to do with some of these concessions. Lesson learned.

The after Christmas competition entry forms will go o ....... ....... .......
