The green, as always, was immaculately prepared

On Saturday June 25 Rye played Observer at home in a friendly match of four triples. A close match with two games each, John Dickinson was very disappointed as his team 4 was leading by 14 points to 2 at teatime. He’s convinced someone ‘spiked’ the tea!

Team 1 – Monty Crouch(lead), Rosemarie Crouch (second), and Don Williams (skip).
They won their match by 29 points to 6
Team 2 – Annette Bull (lead), Norman Hickman (second) and Roger Taylor (Skip)
They won their match by 17 points to 19

concerned

July Rye Bowls Club will host their annual tournament, one of the most popular in the region with 24 teams being by other clubs in East Sussex & Kent submitted (plus 2 reserves as the event is oversubscribed most years). This is an all-day event in which the teams (excluding Rye) compete to win the trophy and prize money. The teams are treated to lunch and refreshments throughout the day and are also invited to participate in the tombola, and various raffles. A share of the profits from this event is donated to two local charities.
Members of the public are welcome to come and watch and have tea with us.
The members of Rye Bowls Club make an early start from around 6:00 am., setting up the marquees, tables and chairs for the competitors and the various stands for the raffles, book stall and tombola. There is also great activity in the kitchen preparing the lunches and refreshments for our visitors. The event starts at 9:30am and ends at about 5pm with the prize giving.
