These are the dates I just hope the weather improves to enable lots of practice to take place.
Good bowling this season.
I'm sorry if you tried to get onto the website last week and could not. This was due to the fact that a hacker decided it would be good fun to cripple our small website. As a result I had to completely remove the whole of the site from our hosting server and rebuild the site from scratch. This took a lot of work and time I could have done without, still it is now all working. If members have any problem in loggin on please contact me and I will sort it out.
A new season is quickly approaching. The Pre-Season meeting is Wednesday 20th March, please come along at 7:30pm.
I hope you have all enjoyed the indoor season, those that have taken part. If you have not bowled indoors this year why not think about joining Swindon Manor IBC next season.
See Richard or Barbara Moody for details.
Hope you all have a good 2013 season and hope the weather both warms up and dries up.
