It's Count Your Buttons Day - today Tuesday.
The sub-committee have another meeting next week on the renovation of the club house - organising closure of the club over the period etc. The interior designer is working on some colour schemes and these will be presented to the members to select in mid November. A meeting has been held with the tiling contractor - further meetings are to be held over the next few weeks.
I have received a poster from Patricia's at Benidorm. They have an open day on Tuesday 21st October for anyone interested. See article under "News Page 2014" on L.H. column.
It was pleasing to see Barbara Nimmick back at the club after her fall, also welcome back to Stuart and Una.
Congratulations to Colin who has started scoring for us - takes the pressure off the other scorers.
Our teaching programme is now underway - every Tuesday for beginners and 2nd year students. In addition to this a number of members are prepared to give seminars on specific topics - if there is anything you specifically want covered please e-mail the club and we will try and get it covered. Please advertise these lessons to your friends.
A very poor week for slams with only 5 small slams bid and made.
