Aspect February 2019 Article

Although the actual bowling season is a distant memory, social events are continuing as usual.

A large gathering met at the clubhouse in early December to celebrate the festive season and an ‘interesting‘ Saturday morning it turned out to be. The club room had been decorated for Christmas and a brilliant buffet awaited the expected guests when all electrical power was lost! All the usual tests were carried out to no avail and Western Power confirmed they didn’t have a problem in the area. Further investigations discovered the main fuse at the gate had ‘blown’

Whilst this was continuing all the guests had arrive and entertained by guitar and sing along, the atmosphere was brilliant and enjoyed by all. When the lights went on again, it seemed a slight letdown. A huge raffle raised £300 for ‘Rainbows’ and club funds, so many thanks to all.

Club secretary Chris Massie, celebrated a ‘special’ birthday in the second week of December and over 100 club members, family and other friends were kindly invited to Kirby Muxloe Golf Club for a superb Sunday carvery. Thanks Chris.

The green keepers’ team also got together for a seasonal lunch at the Dog and Hedgehog, good ‘craic’, as usual.

Roll on 2019 and keep the social events coming so we can anticipate the new season together.
