Open day

Thank you to everyone who supported the Daventry and District Sports Club open day.  I hope everyone enjoyed their session and that we see you again soon.

The volunteers at all the clubs were fantastic and made the day special.

Friday social

  • Thanks for the great support from everyone on Friday night.  The meat raffle, from John Thorne ( Daventry market Tuesday and Friday) was won by Caroline, congratulations to her.

The pizza was well received and the profits from the food and raffle help with club finances.

Looking forward to seeing you all next week.

Ladies friendly against the Grange

Thanks to all the bowlers who took part in the match against the Grange, hopefully we can arrange home and away games next season.

The rain, thankfully, held off and we enjoyed a very pleasant afternoon.

Unfortunately we lost on all three rinks but there is only one direction from here.

Well done to everyone, including the men who served the tea and biscuits.

Meat raffle

Finally, after all these weeks, I’ve won the meat raffle. Don’t know why I am so pleased, as I am a vegetarian, but it’s nice to win. Thank you John, for the meat, always good quality.

Ladies friendly v Kislingbury

Wednesday 7 July

The rain held off for most of the afternoon to enable us to play against the team from Kislingbury. Both sides welcomed one male bowler, to make up the numbers, they appeared to come away unscathed. Thank you to Jean, who arrived at the club expecting a roll up and ended up playing her first official match.

Each team ended with a loss, a draw and a win. Congratulations to Kislingbury who one by a greater margin.

 

Saturday friendly at Byfield

Well done to all the players who played on Saturday in sunny Byfield.

It was a closely contested match with each team winning on two rinks. Congratulations to Byfield, who won by a slightly bigger margin on their two.

Hopefully we’ll get our own back next time.

Friendly against West End

Thank you to all those who supported Thursday’s friendly against West End. We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon with perfect bowling conditions.  The post-match discussions took place while we relaxed with hot dogs and drinks.

Looking forward to our return match.

Friday night bowling

Once again, we had a fantastic turn out for an afternoon of bowling. Six matches for the club completions took place alongside the usual roll-ups. Thank you to all those who stayed on in the dropping temperatures to watch the match that went to a deciding end.

Congratulations to Andy H, who won this week’s meat raffle.

Looking forward to another good turnout this week.

Friday Social

Thanks, once again, to all those who supported our club on this wet Friday night, both virtually and physically.  There was a fantastic response from our members to join in the short mat and chat with friends.

The meat raffle was won by Mike and Thelma, with Mike managing to pull his own ticket out!!! Congratulations to them and thanks to John for supplying the meat.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next week.

Executive triples

John H, Alan G and Janet M played the match against Hilary, Sharon and Pete, from Kingsthorpe, on a very hot Sunday morning.

It was a closely contested match, all the way through, with the score after 14 ends being 14 each.  Unfortunately we didn’t quite manage to pip them at the post, with a final result of 16-19 in favour of the visitors.

An enjoyable, sporting match. Thank you to everyone involved.

Friday night social

Once again, we had a fantastic turnout for our social night. There was some relaxed bowling alongside the three club competition matches.

The meat raffle this week was won by Geoff and Lin, congratulations to them and thanks, once again, to John Thorne for providing us with such a great selection.

The pizza was a big hit, I’ll have to make more next time. 🍕

 

 

Daventry Tigers v Daventry Town

Saturday 5 May.

We spent a very enjoyable, and hot,  afternoon at the Tigers green, with 4 rinks bowling.  Daventry town managed to come from behind and win on one rink, unfortunately the rest of us were not so successful. Congratulations to Marion, Gill, Mike and Phillip.

Thank you to the home team for making us feel so welcome and inviting us to join in with the birthday celebrations.

 

 

Friday night social and meat raffle

Many thanks to all those members who came along to support the club on this beautiful warm evening.  Watching the sun set over the Sunset Bar was relaxing and wonderful.

 

Congratulations to Dave B, the winner of this week’s meat raffle – top quality chicken breasts, sirloin steak, gammon steak and sausages – provided by the Thorne and son’s butchers (every Tuesday and Friday Daventry market).

 

 

 

 

Friday night social

Thank you all, once again, for your fantastic support. This week’s raffle was won by John Hodgkinson again, but he very generously re-donated the prize. Steve Bond, who said “I’m not going to win anyway” was, in fact the next winner. So big congratulations to him – the prize awaits you tomorrow 😀.

Looking forward to a fantastic day at the club tomorrow, hope you can join us.
