The June draw was held in the clubhouse after the Frday League games on 1st July.  The first prize of £200 was won by Ian Griffiths with his number 45 and Derek Goodyear, a generous supporter of the 200 Club since Day 1 in 2017, won the 2nd prize of £50.  Many congratulations to both winners.

Next month's draw will take place in the club on 29th July when the prizes will be £75 and £25. 

The £100 first prize of the first draw of the new 200 Club year was won by Jenny Lowe with her number 9 and our Men’s League Captain John Rawson celebrated our first league game of this season with a 5-1 win over Bicester, but then also won the second prize of £25 with his number 60!  Well done both. 

May I thank everyone who has subscribed with a number or numbers this year.  For a variety of reasons we had a turnover of nearly 20 numbers in the past month so I very much thank those who continue to support the Club and those who have most recently joined or subscribed to extra numbers to make sure we have a full house.

The final draw of this 200 Club year was completed on Friday 29th and the first prize of £75 was won by long time friend of the club Ken White.  The second prize of £25 was won by our exceptional President Gordon Taylor.

Thanks all Bowls Club members who have supported us this past year.  We have now written to all Bowls Club members about the new May 2022 - April 2023 200 Club year when we hope it will be well supported again.

In the year just gone the 200 Club has paid out a total of £2,250 in prizes and we've been able to contribute £2,550 to Sports Club funds.  This money  helps the Sports Club cover borrowing costs associated with the new clubhouse.

So far the 200 Club has raised £12,000 in the 5 years we've been running it, so a big thank you to Bowls Club members who have significantly helped make this happen.

I think the March draw was the first to take place in 5 years without your writer, but happily the winner of the £200 prize is our blind bowling buddy Bob Gerhardt with his number 176, well done Bob.  Second prize was won by Matt Canfield with his number 159.

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 past year and we will be writing in a few weeks' time about the new May 2022 - April 2023 200 Club year when we hope to learn that you will support us again.  

This month the draw was held during a Friday afternoon's table tennis session when the £100 1st prize was won by friend of the Club Nigel Champken-Woods and the £25 2nd prize by Jenny Reed.  

We only have 2 more months to go before the end of this 200 Club's year and March's top prize will be £200!

Good luck everyone.

This month's draw took place in front of an enthusiastic group of short mat players on the very last day of the month.

One of our senior members John Wheeler won this month's £75 first prize with his number 83 and the second prize of £25 went to our tennis club member Alan Cornish with his number 160.

As always, our congratulations go to both winners.

Next month's prizes will be £100 and £25 and hopefully we will be able to do this draw on a Friday evening again!  

Unfortunately, due to the postponement to a later date of our Christmas Dinner, we did the 200 Club Draw on Monday 13th at the final short mat session this year in front of 30 or so enthusiasts.

And this year's bumper Christmas Draw winners will be familiar names to many of you, because Jan Sargeant won the 1st Prize of £500 with her number 103 and Maire Duncan took the 2nd prize of £100 with number 191.

Many congratulations to both long time members of the 200 Club.

We hope to hold the next draw in front of a crowd in January 2022, but we will have to wait and see what next month brings.

In the meantime, we hope you all have a good Christmas and can look forward to a prosperous New Year. 

Another month, another 200 Club draw.  This month's winners have won before, so we need to seek their advice on how to do it!

On this occasion Rosie Collins won £100 with her number 27 and Graham Watson £25 with his number 77.

Next month we have prizes of £500 and £100 in the Christmas Bumper Draw, so we hope to see you there at the Bowls Club Christmas Dinner on 17th December when the draw takes place.   

 

It was really nice to do the 200 Club Draw this month in front of so many club members enjoying a good night out playing short mat, having a drink and a chat, or playing cards.  A good time appeared to be had by all.

Amongst all of this we did the 200 Club Draw in which Graham Watson won the £75 1st prize and Barbara Waters the £25 2nd prize.  Well done to both long term contributors to the 200 Club.

Next month we have £100 and £25 prizes before the big £500 and £100 Draw that will be held at the Christmas Dinner. 

Until next time ........

Bowls Club members are doing very well this year, yet again taking both prizes.

Jane Kimber has won the very significant first prize of £200 and Maxine Plested has the 2nd prize cheque for £50 on the way to her.

Congratulations go to both members and thanks again go to everyone for supporting us so well.

Next month's prizes drop to £75 and £25 before we start working ourselves up the scale to the Christmas jackpot prize of £500 which will be drawn at our Christmas Dinner on 17th December. 

Keep well everyone.

The August draw this month took place earlier than forecast, after the Friday League matches that were played on a Monday (yes really).

The first prize of £100 was won by Steve Balne with his number 48 and the £25 2nd prize went to Louise James, a tennis club member, with her number 25.

Congratulations to both.

Next month's prizes will be £200 and £50.

For the second month in a row and we've been able to do the draw in front of a packed clubhouse, although sadly much to the disapointment of eveyone present, no one in the room won!

Nonetheless, there was applause for the winners, namely the £75 1st prize of winner Jill Jenner and the £25 2nd prize winner Barbara Waters. Well done ladies.

Next month on the 27th August we will have prizes of £100 and £25 up for grabs.

We hope to see you there! 

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.

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.
