20/01/08 - For a brief look at the coming season please view the 2008 Calender

13/01/08 - The A.G.M. minutes are now online. The indoor averages have been updated. The availability so far for the 2008 season is as follows:

Warwick & Worcester - 29 players.

Smethwick 'A' / 'B' - 21 players.

Midweek (4 teams) - 29 players.

Still waiting on the availabilty of 6 bowlers, at the moment it looks like some players will be required to double up in midweek.

12/01/08 - 30 members attended the A.G.M. on Thursday, 6 sent apologies with 9 members absent. Surprisingly it was the best turnout since the A.G.M. in 1997 when 41 members were present. The full minutes will be online soon, for now the Officers page has been updated for the 2008 season.

03/01/08 - The A.G.M. is now just seven days away and the committee have deliberately placed much emphasis on this years meeting. The date was set over three months ago in an attempt to make sure every member attends, preventing the poor turnout we had in 2007. We remind players that this is the one evening in the whole year that we ask people to attend.

Bowls may not be our job or profession but the section will only operate smoothly with the efforts of officers, captains and committee. The A.G.M. is your chance to elect members into these positions and air any views or opinions. Every player who turns up will have their name entered into a draw, one name will be drawn and that person will have their bowls and main club membership subscriptions paid for in 2008.

New or returning members are of course welcome. 7:45pm, meet in the main lounge. Meeting scheduled to start at 8:00pm in the function room.
