Black coat left at the club on Friday evening: it has a hood and is fairly lightweight; most probably a (ladies?) raincoat.  It will be returned to Roke at some point.

County night comes to Roke, 21st Aug and 18th Sept 2015, 7:30pm.

Our Chairman, Colin Jones, is keen to encourage players of mixed ability to take part. You will need to turn up as a team on  21th August. John Slater will assist with putting you together into a team if required. Please click the title for further details of this County night and how to contact John.

September Pro/Am to be combined with September Handicap Pairs

The September Pro/Am was due to be played on Friday 18th of September. This night is now being used to host the second session of the Oxford County Swiss Teams event.
 

A committee decision has thus been taken to play the Pro/Am on the 25th September as part of the usual Handicap Pairs competition. Pro/Am pair results will qualify towards the Handicap Pairs competition, though as such pairs do not play together regularly, this is not expected to affect the Handicap Pairs results unduly.

Regular Handicap Pairs players are, of course, still welcome to play on the night.

Seniors Session at Central Yarnton - 13th October

A new monthly Seniors session will be run by one of the County's newest clubs Central Yarnton.  This event will be run on the 2nd Tuesday morning each month with the prospect of a team of four competition at the end of 6 months against the Southern Seniors which is currently held on the 2nd Monday each month at Wallingford.  The first session will take place on 13th October. Please see flier for more details.

WBC & The Arthrogryposis Group

Over the last few years members of WBC (largely those playing on Tuesdays and Thursdays) have raised almost £400 a year for The Arthrogryposis Group. Go to www.tagonline.org.uk/ for more information about this charity. My granddaughter suffers from arthrogryposis and the various forms of support the group gives to sufferers and their carers is a great help. We have collected over £200 so far this year so perhaps we will go beyond £400 in 2015. My thanks to all those who have contributed and long may it continue. If you want to contribute there is a polythene box kept under the counter for loose change. More substantial amounts can be put in a bank envelope and left in the key cupboard where I will collect it next time I am in the Village Hall.
