After touring for 65 consecutive years it has taken this awful Corona-virus to halt this clubs proud record. Regretfully our 2020 tour to Exmouth has been CANCELLED. We are currently talking to the hotel with regards to possible refunds of monies paid. As soon as this has been finalised we will let all members who were going on the tour what the outcome of these talks are. Until such time we ask that you allow us to keep your funds in the club account.
Your committee have decided to change the proposed tour to Newquay in 2021 to a tour based in Paignton. Unfortunately after two years of negotiation with The Sandy Lodge Hotel (Newquay) they still cannot give us a price or confirm that we have the week we want. Those members who belong to Bognor Regis BC have stayed at The Queens Hotel and highly recommend it. The tour will take place from FRIDAY 14th May 2021 until FRIDAY 21st May 2021. Details of the matches arranged for this tour can be found on the club calendar on the ‘About’ page or the ‘Fixtures’ page. Application forms for this tour will be sent out as usual in August.
The league has been cancelled with three games not played.
Chalk holders are now available in a selection of hardwood, durable finishes. They can be engraved with a Name (in a selection of fonts) and / or an image (provided I can find a suitable one) or you can supply your own. I am selling them at only £10:00 each and they should be ordered via my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also have a selection of handmade ‘pens’ available that may also may be engraved.
I can bring a some along at the any tourist fixture, let me know if you are interested.
