Last weekend we invited umpires from all over the country to come and stay for a special 2 night weekend with 3 sessions of bowling thrown in. It was a weekend designed specially for umpires and what a great 2 nights it was. With the entertainment themed around the 60’s, an era that we all remember far too well, a good time was had by one and all.
The food in the Derwent Hotel was scrumptious . Good honest home cooking and plenty of choices, with a table d’hote menu, hot buffet and salad bar, there was something to please everyone, and not a complaint in the house.
Of course it’s the company that makes a great weekend, not just the bowling, and I would like to thank all those who came on this special weekend for the laughter and fun they brought with them. Fortunately I have remained friends with most of them, despite the bowling, and made some great new chums as well. I’d call that a success.
We ran a small ‘in house’ competition and I am pleased to say that Peter Lillford won the men’s prize and Sally won the ladies prize. We also have a new honorary member of the Wrong Bias Club in Tina Poyner, who was awarded a fun certificate for her mistake.
