Shanklin Bowling Club Newsletter
“ROLL UP ROLL UP” read all about it!! NEWSLETTER No 13 December 2020
Here is the last news letter for 2020 the year that will go down in history that's for sure. The Club Committee are still constantly reviewing the situation and will act accordingly to Government advice. The Committee continue to have their monthly meetings all be it under social distance rules so rest assured your club is still in good hands and I feel we should all thank both Committee’s for their endeavours in what has been an unprecedented bowling season. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING POSTPONED UNTIL THURSDAY 15th APRIL 2021 ***
PHOTO GALLERY If you have any photos that you feel may raise a smile then please hold onto them for the time being as this months letter will be the final one for the foreseeable future. As you aware Ces Tibbets puts an enormous amount of work and time transferring my editorial efforts onto the Club website, also Ces tries every month to lighten the situation with a great selection of music. We have always asked for ideas and articles to make the news letters interesting and communicative. Myself and Ces have discussed and agreed reluctantly not to continue with the process as we have virtually no feed back from the membership which is a shame, however if you would like to see the newsletter return after a rest then please contact me or Ces and we will see if it can happen. ***
STAYING SAFE As we leave 2020 I would Imagine this will be a continued slogan. Don’t forget you need a mask to go in the shops etc. Keep washing your hands to your favourite tune for 20 seconds, keep to the 2 metre distance rules. Watch out for the “nudger's” with their trolleys in your back and keep an eye open for queue jumpers and try not to get annoyed by the NON mask wearers its not worth the argument. ***
LET THE MUSIC PLAY Here’s a medley of some 50’s, 60’s and 70’s Classics to sing along too whilst we are all in Lockdown Part Two!!
1. Rook 2. Samuel 3. Gibb 4. Vincent Van Gough 5. Argentina 6. Sword 7. Gin 8. 13 9. Dumbo 10. The Medical Profession

SHANKLIN BOWLING GREEN
Whilst rummaging around in his old drawers (no pun intended) John Harden came across a couple of old video camera tapes from 1997 On close inspection it transpired the tapes captured various stages of our green being relayed during September/October 1997 The sound quality was very poor but the overall integrity of the tapes was quite good. The club decided to try and get all the material transferred digitally onto a USB stick. I am pleased to say the transfer was successful and the film has been uploaded via a link from our web site. Just click on the link and hey presto, we are transported back in history. No Millennium room extension, past and present members you may or may not recognise, numerous members seemingly copying the “Shakers” or if you prefer “Line Dancing”. We have edited each tape into smaller segments to ensure you are not overcome with boredom. Each tape is approxamately 5-6 minutes in length and have been organised into a playlist for you to view at your leisure. This is a little bit of the club’s history which will be archived for posterity. Have a look and see how many members you can identify.
THE NEW GREEN - 1997 VIDEO CLIPS
OUR COMMUNITY In these times it’s all about Community so let’s all support all our independent businesses and I would hope at the next club open day (when ever that is) we can invite all these business people to our club to give a big thanks and perhaps a glass of something!

This fine Station does a lot for the community and plays some exceptional music, and don’t forget our very own Ron Leleux hits the airwaves every Monday with the Mid Morning show 10-1pm and Fridays 10-12noon !! ***
STAY ALERT MORE THAN EVER FOR SCAMS Unfortunately they are getting more and more and believable so if you don’t recognise the number let them leave a message (THEY DON’T) ! ! THEY are STILL at it: emails pretending to be from the NHS regarding contact and tracing and phone calls asking for your details so you can use the pubs and restaurants or saying your internet provider is about to turn off your broadband for illegal use, and the very latest is your visa has expired !!! In these times its all about Community so lets all support all our independent businesses and I would hope at the next club open day (when ever that is) we can invite all these business people to our club to give a big thanks and perhaps a glass of something ! ***
