2023 Season

Hi, and Happy New Year to everyone,

 

It’s that time of year when we start thinking about playing outdoors. As you will recall at the AGM in November it was agreed that subs would be raised to £85 for the year. Your subscription is actually due to be paid before the 31st January.

If you can pay the full amount then, that would be appreciated, however, we know that after Christmas, and with the cost of living crisis, this would be a lot to pay so we are asking each member to pay at least £40 by the 31st January and pay the balance before the end of April.

The reason we are asking for payment by the end of January is to ascertain how many members we will have and which leagues/friendlies they want to play in so we can plan how many teams we can enter into the various leagues we play in.

 

All new members joining this year who have paid their subs will receive a free club shirt, contact Alice Atwell with your size asap so you can get your shirt for the start of season. If anyone requires an extra shirt the cost is £29. Please contact Alice Atwell with your size.

 

I am attaching with this email a document showing all the competitions available and leagues that we play in. Please ensure that you notify Dick Holden as soon as possible if you wish to enter competitions .  Members should have already received competition entry forms for County, Northants, Whitchurch, and Three Counties. Again, please contact him if you wish to enter.

 

I have attached a separate initial sign up sheet for Leagues/Friendlies, please return this form to Dick so he knows who would like to play in these matches. A full list of matches and dates will be provided for members to sign up in the clubhouse when we know the schedule.

 

You can pay your subs by cheque or by bank transfer. Cheques made payable to Alton Social Bowling Club can be forwarded to Florence Ward 9 Goodwood Close Alton GU34 2TX

 

Bank details for transfer are:

Alton Social bowling Club Account 00001971 Sort Code 77-25-06 please put your name in reference field.

 

 

 

Regards
