HELP OUT THE CLUB - EASY!

here is an easy way to help out the club without useing your brain. If you are shopping -just follow the steps and earn money for the club at no extra cost to you. Thanks.

Not much else to reposrt for a while during these winter months. The Editor is on holiday during January so there will be nothing happening on the wesite for a while!

Well, you must call a spade a spade and the Tourist matches this year had good support after a lot finger pointing. Well done to all supporters  who put their names down to play, its VERY IMPORTANT for the club finances. We look forward to your support once again this year in the summer season of  2024 too.

XMAS DRAW

The Xmas draw was a great success - small report on the facebook page for details

CLUB OUTFITS

At long last, the whole club, Men and Women,  has moved over to having Navy Blue bottoms. Its taken a while, but the concensous is, its a great look.

For those members who need a club shirt, they now can be supplied at the Clubhouse from various

members of the Comittee, Danny, Vicky etc. We should have all sizes in stock now. Cost is £29.00

WINTER LEAGUES/COMPETITIONS

Our Winter leagues needs tidying up. Please play all outstanding games as soon as possible and play you future matches by the time stated. Any queries, see John Walker.. Remember, our club is the only one on the Island that covers winter play on a full size rink and  is actually included in the annual subscription!.  Indoor  Once again, please make sure you keep to the 'play by' dates - Thank you

NEWS ON OUR NEWSLETTER

If you are still looking for the report that used to be in the South Wight Chronicle, and subsequently published weekly on this website, it is no longer!. Colin Beavis, who had edited and published it for the last 13 years or so, has hung up his 'Editors Hat'. He will not be producing and publishing his letter any longer. What a fantastic and dedicated job he has done for the Club in performing this task week in and week out without a miss.

He also produced the first website for the Club back in the day - one of the 1st clubs to have one on the Island. However, he will not be retiring from the game and his skills on the green will still be enjoyed by all.

The website will try and provide some of the weekly info Colin provided, but sadly, it will not be quite so comprehesive.

DO IT!

Vicky, our treasurer, has been busy so please read and do - Thank You!

BEGINNERS MONDAY NIGHTS

Our beginners night on Monday night, due to lack of support and the inclement wheather we

are experiencing at the moment is suspended for now. Another factor is heating and lighting the clubhouse  with low attendance is not viable at the moment. if you do wish to  have a session, please contact the clubhouse or phone John Walker - contact on club official page.

ANNUAL MATCH AGAINST RYDE INDOORS

Our Annual match against the Isle of Wight Indoors Club at Ryde took place on the 20th January. It was a great match, played in good spirit. Sanwiches were laid on after the match for the players and guests as well. As we well know, Ryde plays a lot different to our Home rink at Ventnor and several of our teams  found the going very tricky. As a result, apart from one team led by Cris Earle, Dave King, Steve Gallop and Mark Hyde, we got slaughtered!!!!!! 118 - 63

Perhaps one day we will win!
