Monday Morning Roll-Up Competition
Please join the Monday Morning Roll-Up competition. This is held every Monday morning starting at 11.00 (NB: last entry by 10.50), except when there is a Drive. There will be a one-off charge of £1 to enter, which will go towards a cash prize for the winner and runner-up in September.

President's Charity Drive
Took place on Monday 28 May starting at 2.30, followed by a cream tea. A grand total of £363 was raised on the day for The Alzheimer's Society.
BBQ and Fun Day
Around 60 Auriol members and their guests celebrated with a BBQ and Fun Day, a weekend in which England won by a record margin at the World Cup, beat South Africa in rugby union, the Australians in the cricket One Day International series (completing a whitewash), and Lewis Hamilton won the French Grand Prix.
A feast such as we had for 60 people does not just appear by magic, but the Catering team are so slick that it almost appeared to do so. Thank you all to those who helped plan, buy and prepare the delicious food, our chefs who stood in excessive heat to cook, as well as those who prepared the tables and cleared up.
Of course not forgetting the Vice-Captains who organised the bowling (including a very challenging target rink, complete with obstacles!).
Took place on Monday 16 July, commencing with roll-up triples on three rinks (and an interesting game of target bowls on a fourth rink!). The Ploughman's Lunch was a superb spread, going well beyond the staple bread and cheese, rounded off with strawberries and ice cream (and/or cream). Our thanks and congratulations to the Catering team, led by Shirley Tracey.
On Saturday 11 August, around three dozen members enjoyed a game of bowls, followed by a delicious Fisn'n'Chip Supper, organised by the Catering team.
Our thanks to the coaches, the catering team, and to those volunteers who gave up their time to welcome visitors to the club during Trifest, which took place in Auriol Park on Saturday 1 September. Despite stiff competition from 'Robbie Williams', a number of members of the public visited the club to try their hand at bowls, two of whom decided that it was the game for them, and applied to join Auriol.
Torquay Bowls Trip
The annual tour to Torquay, organised smoothly as ever by Vic Saunders, took place this year from Sunday 30 September to Friday 5 October. The package included B&B plus evening meal, 2 hours bowling against local/touring clubs daily. Some however just wished to relax after a busy outdoor season, and there were plenty of other options available.
The annual Presentation Dinner was held on Saturday 10 November (see Home page for further details).
Took place on Saturday 24 November starting at 10.30. See Home page.
