We have at last been able to do a 200 Club Draw in front of a proper audience, namely at our first Friday League evening since August 2019.  Makes a change of doing the draw in front of one man and dog watching over my shoulder on Zoom! 

Our long standing bowls club member Dave Powell won the first prize of £200 with his number 84 and Helena Richards of the Tennis Club, who has been with us since the start of the 200 Club, won the £50 second prize with number 85.

As always, congratulations go to both winners.

All being well, we will do the next draw on 30th July and if you can't remember which you numbers you have, the full list is on display in the clubhouse, pinned to the blue screen.

Well here we are again and a new 200 Club year starts with another first.

Ken Calcutt, who won last month with number 88 wins again this month with the same number and that hasn't happened before in over 4 years.  Congratulations go to Ken, along with the £100 that is on its' way to him.

Second Prize winner for £25 this month is Beryl Wright who wins with her number 42.

Our thanks go to everyone who has supported the 200 Club again this year and to those who have joined in for the first time - not everyone can be a prize winner, but at least if you don't win, you know your money is going to help us keep our facilities in a healthy state.

The draw took place today in the Clubhouse for a change and we hope we can do the June Draw after the first round of Friday League matches on 25th of next month.  We hope to see you then.

The final draw of this 200 Club year meant that Alan Cornish, a tennis club member who has supported the 200 Club from the very beginning won £75 and our very own Ken Calcutt, who has also been with us since the start, won £25. 

The new 200 Club year May 2021 - April 2022 will start again shortly so please look out for an email from me asking you to please keep your numbers for another year.

In this year just gone the 200 Club has paid out a total of £2,250 in prizes and we've been able to contribute £2,540 to Sports Club funds.  This money will help the Sports Club cover the borrowing costs associated with the new clubhouse.

So far the 200 Club has raised £9,700 in the 4 years we have been running it, so a big thank you to bowls club members who have significantly helped make this happen.

Ian Rutherford

200 Club Administrator

 

The March draw allows us to write a cheque to John Ashfield who today won £200 with his number 14 and to Ken Bennell who will shortly have a cheque in his hands for £50 having won second prize with his number 69.

The final draw of this 200 Club year will be next month when the April prizes will be £75 and £25.

Thanks everyone who is a member for supporting the 200 Club this year.

We will be writing to everyone in a few weeks'. time about the May 2021 - April 2022 200 Club.

Keep well all.

Well, this month we have a very happy Ray Brindley celebrating a £100 win with his number 137 and Kevin Sharman a £25 win with number 179.

Our congratulations go to both winners.

Next month we have prizes of £200 and £50 on offer.

Hope to see you all soon! 

Hi everyone and hoping for a Happy New Year to one and all.

This month's draw has just taken place and the winners are:

First prize Mr John Walker with number 111 and he wins £75.  The second prize goes to Mrs Jill Jenner with number 183 and she wins £25.

Well done both lucky players.

Next month's prizes wil be worth £100 and £25.

The extra special Christmas Draw of the 200 Club took place this evening and, luckily, Bowls Club members won both prizes.

The £500 cheque for the 1st Prize will go to Chris Bennell and the £100 2nd Prize cheque will soon be on its' way to Roger Blackburn.

Congratulations to them both.

Next month we have more modest prizes on offer of £75 an £25 - watch this space in about 6 weeks' time.

We have two familiar names to report as winners this month.  

Peter Bozier the Sports Club Chairman has won the First Prize of £100 and Janet Shannon has bagged the £25 Second Prize.

The date for the December Christmas Draw will be publicised soon when prizes will be £500 and £100.  We will do the Draw before Christmas with enough time to bank the winning cheque before the Holidays!

Ladies and gentlemen, after 3½ years of our 200 Club we have a first.

The numbers 98 and 198 came out as first and second prizes, so that means Jill Jenner won the 1st prize of £75 and Robin Jenner won the 2nd prize of £25, literally cornering the market in October's draw. 

So congratulations go to Mr and Mrs Jenner on their great good fortune and we look forward to next month's draw at the end of November when the prizes will be £100 and £25.

 

How wondeful it was to finally hold this month's draw in the new Sports Club building.  The draw was made by the Sports Club Chairman Peter Bozier and witnessed by your 200 Club Administrator.

Jan Sargeant was lucky enough to win first prize of £200 and Nikki Jackson of the Tennis Club won the £50 second prize.

Hopefully we will have the opportunity to have more than one witnesss for the October draw when the prizes will be £75 and £25.

By way of a change this month's draw was held during a Sports Club Committee Meeting, still online though, so no social distancing required.

And this month the tennis club have a clean sweep with Dawn Munro winning the first prize of £100 and Rosie Collins second prize of £25.

Congratulations go to both ladies.  

September's first prize is £200 with a £50 second prize.

Yet again the draw was witnessed by video link - ever the optimist, the Administrator is hoping we can hold the August Draw at the clubhouse!

Anyway, very happy to report there are two Bowls Club member winners this month, Phil Reed wins £75 and Tony Freeman gets the £25 2nd prize.  

Congratulations to both winners.

Once again the draw took place at the Administrator's house and was witnessed by the Chairman and Treasurer of the Sports Club by video link.

The £200 prize was won by our very own Mike Ralls and the second prize of £50 went to the tennis club's Michael Clark.

Congratulations to both.

Next month's draw will feature prizes of £75 and £25.

Firstly very many thanks to everyone who has taken a number or indeed numbers in this year's 200 Club.

The very first draw of this new 200 Club year took place again at the Administrator's base camp and witnessed by video link by the Chairman and Treasurer of the Sports Club.

First prize of £100 was won by a new entrant of the 200 Club (what a way to start, already recovering his investment more than four times over) was Geoff Roynan.  Well done Geoff and congratulations.

Second prize of £25 was won by Alan Cornish, who by contrast is in his 4th year of 200 Club membership and who has just won some cash for the first time!

June's prizes will be £200 and £50 - good luck all and stay well.

As last month, the April Draw took place at the 200 Club Administrator's home and this time was witnessed on video by both Chairman and Treasurer of the Sports Club.

Dr Edward Bray won the £75 first prize and the second prize of £25 was won by John Timms. 

Thanks again to everyone who is a member for supporting the 200 Club this year.

We will be writing to all bowls and tennis club members later this week about how to renew your numnber(s) or join the May 2020 - April 2021 200 Club.

Given these trying times, the March Draw took place at the 200 Club Administrator's home and was witnessed on a video conference by the Chairman of the Sports Club.

The £200 prize on this occasion was won by Ray Brindley and the second prize of £50 was won by Mr Vice Chairman of the Bowls Club, John Walker.  So a Chinnor monopoly reigns this month.

Thanks everyone who is a member for supporting the 200 Club this year.

The final draw for this 200 Club year will be next month when prizes will be £75 and £25.

We will be writing to everyone soon about thoughts and plans for the May 2020 - April 2021 200 Club.

Keep well all.

This afternoon's draw took place again at the Friday table tennis session at Scouts HQ.

Jill pressed the buttons on this occasion, hoping she would win, but it is Margaret Boynton who will receive the £100 cheque and Jane Martin, of the tennis club and 200 Club member from the beginning will get a cheque for the £25 second prize.

Well done ladies.

Next month's prizes are £200 and £50.

Maire pressed the buttons and first prize of £75 was won by Leonard Grimshaw.  The second prize of £25 goes to Louise James of the Tennis Club.

February prizes will be £100 and £25. 

The year's bumper 200 Club Draw took place at the Bowls Club Christmas Bingo extravaganza at Towersey on Saturday 14th.

The Towersey Memorial Hall must have somehow brought good luck to local resident and Sports Club Secretary Anne Kirkland who won the year's top prize of £500.

Second prize of £100 was won by John Hurley, recently made a Bowls Club Life Member at the AGM and who happily was present to receive his cheque. 

This month's 200 Club Draw took place at Friday 29th November's afternoon table tennis session at Scout HQ in Southern Road.

November's lucky winners were Barry Green with £100 and Janet Shannon who won £25.

This month's draw was undertaken at the Bowls Club AGM on 21st October with 60 plus people in attendance.  

Dawn Munro, a Tennis Club supporter of the 200 Club since the very start won the first prize £75 and Marion Keal won the £25 second prize. 

This month's draw was undertaken at Bowls Presentation Evening on 20th September in front of an audience of around 50 (in stark contrast to last month's draw).  

Catherine Jones, a Sports Club supporter and local Town Councillor won £200 and our own Jane Kimber won the £50 second prize. 

This month's draw was undertaken in an (almost) empty and somewhat echoey Clubhouse on Friday afternoon by Mr Alfred Jochum and witnessed by Mr Terry Emberson.

The two winners were our very own Tony Freeman with £100 and, after last month's win by Life Member Keith Wright, yet another appeared on the raffle machine in the shape of Life Member Mr John Timms, who wins £25.

Next month's prizes will be £200 and £50 when we will have to find a different place to hold the draw!

This month's two popular winners were Keith Wright with £75 and Sharon Heafey £25.  

Next month's prizes will be £100 and £25.  

 

This month's draw took place on 28th June after the Friday League matches when the prize winners were Nikki Jackson £200 and Isabella Frost £50.  

Both are long standing supporters of the 200 Club, having been members since before the very first draw in May 2017.
