Apologies for the late posting of the results for Tuesday May 21st.  This was due to a temporary failure of the Bridgewebs host website, now restored.

Welcome to Ashford (Kent)
Change of Tuesday venue from June

Owing to the announced closure of the Givaudan Social Club from the end of May, the Club will be changing the venue for our Tueday meetings. starting June 4th.  The Committee have agreed terms for us to meet at the Ashford Indoor Bowls Club on both Tuesdays and Thursdays, and believe this to be our best option.  If other club members wish to investigate alternatives on our behalf we will be pleased to hear from you.

Arrangements for the Host System

The host system is as follows.  A host duty list will be published but the HOST will need to be activated.  Anyone wishing to play on a Tuesday evening and requiring a partner should telephone Bob Jones on 01233 756362 or phone / text to 07747 860342 by 5 pm on the day.  If more than one person needs a partner, you will be paired up.  Otherwise you will play with the host.  The host should telephone Bob Jones after 5 pm on the day to find out whether or not they are required, therefore avoiding a wasted journey or allowing time to make alternative arrangements for a partner.  As a result, it is expected Club Members previously excused host duty because of traveling long distance or shared travel will now do host duty.  Click to view the current host list.
