This year's Registration Day is on Sunday, April 5th from 10am to 12 noon.
Excellent weather helped make this another brilliant day for the club. A high standard of bowls entertained the watching members and with some excellent food served up by a lot of volunteers, a good day was had by all.
Winners on the day were: Club Champion: Phil Wells; Ladies Champion: Eileen Sayers; Men's Champion: Phil Wells; Junior Cup: Chris Peedell; 100 Up: Phil Wells; Club Handicap: Chris Simmons; Drawn Pairs: Neville Newham an Dave Renno.
Well, what can I say - in two weeks we went from a potential disaster to what turned out a brilliant night. Following a phone call from Horntye 2 weeks before the "do" to say that they couldn't accommodate our Presentation Night due to storm damage, the Hastings and Bexhill Rugby Club stepped in to save the day. And what a great night they made it for us all. We can't thank Sue & Jerry and all their helpers on the night enough for saving the day and ensuring that everyone had an enjoyable evening. As for the food: "Just delicious"!!

The next Social Night will be a Quiz Night held at Tilekiln Social Club on Friday, January 17th starting at 7.30pm. Please come along and enjoy a great social night with other members and friends.
Another really enjoyable season comes to an end and the winter work on the green, club house and surrounding hedges starts. If you have any spare time on a Monday, Wednesday or Frday morning please go along to the club and help the "volunteers" who are there every week.
