Contrasting Fortunes

PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB

These matches are the reverse games from the start of the season and unfortunately we have not had as good a start to the second half of the season as we had at the beginning. Indeed in one of the leagues we have managed to get what can only be described as another very low score.

Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Home – Bradwell – 23 June – 6.30pm.

Two home matches on the trot and Pat B and Dot H are rapidly becoming our star turn, thank goodness. They played a very experienced pair and won by the princely sum of 21 – 6. What a pair they are. Last week we put out a call for more Dawn’s, this week we need more Pat and Dot’s. Know where there are any of these? Edith partnered this week by Sue A also turned on the style winning 21 – 10. Our esteemed captain Dawn A partnered herself with John B, silly lady and nearly paid the price for her daftness. They clawed their way back from the brink of defeat 20 – 16 down to win 21 -20, phew! All in all we had a thankfully good win 76 – 57. Can’t believe we were still fourth in the league, with this good win with luck we may stay there.

  • Next match- Away – Matlock Bath – 30 June – 6.30pm

Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Away – Hathersage – 25 June – 1.45pm.

Now you really do need a lot of players in this league, 12 is the best number, six for doubles and six for singles, we were close to managing only seven when Rick M stepped in to fill the breach and he even brought his wife along (a none bowling better half) who scored for us. Thanks Ida. Anyway it probably mattered not a lot as we managed to get less than 100 again this week. Only Tony A and Edith managed a win in the doubles and our brilliant captain John H brought us our only win in the singles. On our green in the first match of the season we beat Hathersage scoring 129. Oh happy days! I suppose we can look forward to a return to the nether regions of the lower league next year. Seriously though we are in dire need of more, particularly younger Members. Come and help us out please.

  • Next match – Home – Youlgrave – 2July – 1.45pm.

Have a good wakes week everyone and enjoy the festivities.

John B.

Nia has inherited the organisation of this year’s Parwich Panoramic Five (Fell Race), and has asked us to post the following:

Would anyone like to be a marshal for the PP5 on Tues 4th Aug?

Chance to wear a high viz vest and look at sweaty men and women in lycra safe in the knowledge that being a marshal implies being the sensible one!

Contact me on 661 if anyone would like to help. Great fund raiser for Parwich Memorial Hall and the Royal British Legion (the national charity).

It is a great event and well worth supporting so do give Nia a ring.

On Sunday June 7th we held our annual “Groundforce day” when the legion gets its pre-wakes makeover both internally and externally. Big thank you to our willing volunteers who gave up their Sunday afternoon to come along and help – you all did an absolute fantastic job which is very much appreciated.
Big thank you also to Emma and Rob for the excellent BBQ you prepared for the troops.

Thanks again, Carl
