Bowline CC - What's on!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Wednesday, 17th October 2018 @ 9:55pm

Hi Bowliners,

Welcome to this week's "What's on", letting you know what's happening over the next 7 days, plus any announcements from the club.

EXTRA MEET - I (Andy Potter) have booked an 8 bed dorm in the Karabiner MC hut in Snowdonia from Thursday 25th October (evening) to Sunday 28th October. I will be staying there with my two sons but the hut has no-one else booked (yet) across this period so if others would like to join us we can a allocate you a place in our dorm (or book one of the other dorms if we need more space). Cost is £12 per night, contact me if you'd like a space.

Club meets this week:

Opportunities open to club members, and external events, this week:

  • Nothing to share that is happening this week. Are you doing something next week (Wednesday onwards) which club members could join in with? Let us know about it by Tuesday night.

Announcements:

Work has now started on the improvements to the club hut. A small team went up at the end of September and stripped out the fittings and fixtures most of which fitted into the new shed. This is starting to pay for itself in what we've saved in storage and transport hire. The work should take approximately four weeks after which it will need decorating before new flooring is fitted. Another weekend will be required to put back the fixtures and fittings. So hopefully by the end of November we should be up and running.

So we need volunteers for the decorating weekend and the moving back in weeks. As with all builders the finish date is fluid so when I have the dates I'll let you know. A big thank you to Tom Parker, Andy Railton, Stepan Ptacek and Mick Brady who worked so hard over the preparation weekend.
