E.D.I.B.C. Ladies vs Men

There was a buzz in the club this afternoon as 24 of our Ladies played a match against 24 of our Men. It was so good to hear the friendly banter and laughter across the rinks and after 10 ends the Ladies were slightly ahead. As always, everything changed after tea and biscuits and the Men fought back to win overall by 17 points.

The away rink skipped by S.Bain had a very steady game winning 15-13. The away rink skipped by I.Coombes got off to a slow start being 8-2 down at 5 ends, but fought back with some good bowls and some luck to win 25-19.

Sussex County U25’s League

Congratulations to Freddie Cable who has played in the Sussex County U25’s League Team.

Last season he played well for them and this season he has played in both games.

With only 3 rinks in this mixed league to get picked, with all the U25’s available, is a great achievement for Freddie and our club.

Social Activities for People with Dementia & their Carers

We recently welcomed Members and their Carers from ‘Memory Lane’ to have their first try at bowls. We started the session by having a go at delivering the bowls, followed by scoring points using the floor target and ‘goal’. A cuppa and cake finished off a fun afternoon and we look forward to their next visit. Visits are planned for the 4th Friday in the month.

Denny Cup

EASTBOURNE  78  PRESTON  73
The Home Rinks skipped by Mike Taylor and Phil Garrett got off to a flying start and at 10 ends were 15 shots up, but the Preston rinks started to find their shots and the Home teams finished 11 shots up at the end.
The Away Rinks skipped by Ian Coombes and Steve Bain found it hard to find the line and weight on a fast swinging green and at 10 ends were 14 shots down. They then got their heads down and only lost by 6 shots at the end.
Good result lads, keep going for the next round.

Likely Lads . . .

Another great night of entertainment at the club last night. Members danced the night away to live music from The Likely Lads, a local duo who performed covers from 1960’s – 1980’s. As always our thanks go to Chris and her social team for all their work behind the scenes and to Peter & Billy behind the bar.
