Welcome to Auriol at the start of a new year, and we look forward to seeing you in the coming season.
To start the year, many congratulations to .....
.... Our new Committee for 2018
Congratulations and welcome to our new Committee, and to the other club officers, who were elected at our AGM. Welcome, too, to our new Club Secretary, Rosemary Wilman, whose appointment was approved unanimously by the General Committee. See Who's Who 2018 for details.
.... Hot Shots!
Many congratulations to Margaret Mead, Andrea Nunney and Doreen Weight in winning a Bowls International Hot Shots Award for scoring a 'Perfect 9' in a Cristal League match against Sutton Common. The last time one of our Ladies teams achieved this was in 2012 (see News for 2017).
.... ABC Winners!
Congratulations to the Apple team, captained by Norman Bird, supported by Chris Ballard, Eddie Scott, Graham Taperell, Ron Watts & Jenny Wyld, for winning the 2017 ABC League see Results for 2017).
.... Captains' Team
For winning the return leg of the Captains vs. Vice-Captains match, giving the Captains' team a convincing 2-0 victory (see Results for 2017).
.... Sutton & Epsom League Triples
Congratulations to Geoff Izzard, Chris Mead & Brian Russell for reaching the Finals of the 2017 S&EBC League Triples Tournament. This follows an Auriol team winning the Triples title in 2013 (see Results for 2017).
.... RDML League
Congratulations to all those members who have played in the RDML matches this season in achieving our highest-ever League position, finishing fourth in the table, just two points behind the 'bronze medal' place which went to Carshalton. Well done all! (See Results for 2017).
Our annual presentation of trophies to the club competition champions and finalists took place on Saturday 23 September at King Georges Field Indoor Bowling Club, where around 50 members enjoyed a 3-course meal prepared and served by Carolyn and her team from Love Your Greens, with live music provided by our very own James Rayne in his Swinging Sixties duo. A good time was had by all, and particular thanks for organising the event go to Chris Ballard, Shirley Tracey and Dave Rich (see Events for 2017).
Very many congratulations to all the finalists, and to the new club champions, including the ladies singles champion for 2017, Di Newman, and the new men’s singles champion, James Seeley. It was great to see so many new or recent members’ names on the roll of honour – and we’ll surely see them appear again in the future (see Results for 2017).
Come along to our Brunch Club, being held in the pavilion every Thursday morning throughout the winter season from 11.00 - 2.00 through to April. Enjoy food, games, and a really friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
