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.

National Over 60’s Double Rink

EASTBOURNE ‘A’ 38 LANGNEY ‘B’ 29

Peter Jackson’s home rink got off to a flying start with a 16-4 lead at 10 ends and this increased to a 25-8 win. Malcolm Livesey had a very good game at lead setting the heads for the rest of his team.

The away rink skipped by Ian Coombes got of to a fine start only down 10-9 at 10 ends, but found it hard to maintain this level on a much faster running green and finished 21-13 down

EASTBOURNE ‘B’ 27 LANGNEY ‘B’ 38

At home Derek Dyer’s team found it hard to control the game with the Langney skip (G Selby) having a very good game and they lost 19-11.

The away rink skipped by Derek Wells had a hard struggle due to the fast green but came back only to lose 19-16.

A Message From Your Captain

Dear Members,

Another busy summer season has come to an end.

We have played 22 matches against clubs in the area, plus two touring teams.

It was a great effort by members to cover fully all the games, of which we won 14 and lost 8.

We finished the summer period with two games against outside clubs Hampden Park and Saffron’s which brought together members ready for another winter period. Both were good days and it was great to see so many people having a good time together.

Our club is moving forward with your help.

Many thanks,

Peter Ring
Men’s Captain

Saturday Night Fever

There was a touch of Saturday Night Fever at the club last Saturday with another hugely successful 50’s 60’s 70’s Disco Night, once again fancy dress was optional and so many members entered into the spirit of the evening or should that be ‘Spirit in the Sky’ . . . Big thank you to all the volunteers who make these evenings such a success.

DO YOU SHOP IN WAITROSE?

The Waitrose Community Matters in-store scheme offers a share of £1000 between three local organisations. The proportion of that share is decided by store customers placing a token in a voting box after their shop.

EDIBC have been chosen by Waitrose in Old Town Eastbourne as one of the three local organisations for the month of OCTOBER so any tokens placed in our box will help us purchase smaller (junior) size bowls for our junior section.

Our club is actively trying to encourage younger players to become involved in bowls and have recently welcomed a few local scout and cub groups to have a go, bowls is a great way to stay fit, make new friends and can be played by all ages

Take Your Partners By The Hand . . .

Saturday 31st August 2019 saw our first ever barn dance held at the club and what a roaring success it was!
Beautiful bunting decorated our function room, tables were laid with gingham tablecloths and lovely little flower displays welcomed our members and guests as they arrived. A wholesome ploughmans buffet was served half way through.
The room was filled with laughter and tears and people falling over or going the wrong way all night long.

Our next social event is  50’s 60’s 70’s Disco on Saturday 28th September 2019 at 19.30 please see our Social page for a full list of all our planned events.
