The season opens!

Here's a flavour of opening day - the bowlers returning from the spider competition, a couple of non bowlers testing out the new rink shelters and the bar stock, a copy of the new fixture card (do pick up a copy at the club),  plus Chris McCarthy - to whom huge thanks were given - who built the rink shelters and, of course, loads of cake (thank you to the bakers)!
