Hi to all Senior Blades October 2020



      Hi to all    SENIOR BLADES                                                               October 2020

                                                    MONTHLY LUNCH MEETINGS

As the COVID situation does not seem to be easing a great deal at the moment, the Senior Blades committee have taken a decision not to have lunch meetings until 2021. This decision has been made, taking into account the Government Guidelines and also giving due consideration to the welfare of our members. We will notify members of what arrangements will be made when this becomes safe for everyone.

                                                     SENIOR BLADES SUPER SIX

Our Super Six League is up and running and after the first three rounds, Jack Bows has a commanding lead at the top, thanks to his Round 1 score of 19 points, although the chasing pack will be making an effort to close the gap in the next couple of weeks. For the rest of us remember it’s a ‘ marathon not a sprint ‘  Members can still join the weekly and monthly leagues.  Just go to SUPER6/HOME   Register and enter the S B  League pin number     S8LK73
