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.

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
