Some Old News And Photo's From Previous Years

 

Ron is Back!
(with some interesting stuff!)
Nov 2017 Musings

Back - AGAIN!

Yes, Ron’s back and it really does seem as though I’ve never been away. Summer passed without incident and my warm weather Winter training went incredibly well. I’m ready for the fray.

Since I last wrote to you it seems the World has become slightly madder and maybe a tad more dangerous while Topsham B.C. sails serenely on towards another Christmas and beyond. What, however, will 2018 bring?

My spies tell me that the men are unable to field a Captain for the new season meaning that, for the first time ever, we’ll be led by a lady Captain & Vice. Well if it’s good enough for the Country it surely must be good enough for a Devon bowls club! I hope that we’ll all be offering our full support and our thanks to the ladies concerned as, after all, it doesn’t bear thinking about had they not stepped up to the plate.

This does though make me wonder what might happen when the current crop of willing work horses within the club retires to their grassy field for a very well-earned rest. Others will have to come forward to take on their jobs or else the club will slowly decline and fold. Not a scenario to cheer the soul!

‘What about you, Ron?’, I hear you shout. An interesting thought, but, with all my foreign bowling and leisure commitments I simply don’t have the time. Others reading this almost certainly do.

Of all my ‘resting places’ it’s Topsham that I most enjoy. The Club’s integral to the place – it must survive and continue to offer all it currently does. So, come on guys, the solution’s in your hands.

Ron Bias.
