Wow what a night! The New Years Eve party was packed and lively, enjoyed by some 70 or so members, friends and guests. Is there another club out there like us? I don’t think so! Many thanks to George and his helpers in the kitchen for providing the food and for Tim who certainly got the party rocking!
The 2018 annual dinner and presentation of prizes was held at the club on Friday 20th November and 82 members enjoyed good food and convivial company. Mr Tim Bloomer acted as MC for the evening and gave a fine resume of an outstanding season. Prizes were presented by our sponsors, Pestforce(Gloucestershire) and Pestforce(Gloucester) and flowers to our lady guest.
Club finals were held over the weekend of 1st and 2nd September and the spectators were provided with a number of high quality, closely fought matches.
