Sunday  19th.August  League match v Queen Camel away start time 2.30 p.m.

TRIPLES LEAGUE - 11TH.JULY

Due to England's unexpected progression to the World Cup semi-finals I have decided to postpone the triples matches on this date. This round of fixtures will be added on at the end and be played on the 8th.August.

S.J.B.C. v Shepton Mallet 8th.July

Thankfully we left our disastrous run of results in June behind us and secured a much needed win against Shepton Mallet by a score of 97 shots to 61. In blistering heat we managed to win on all four rinks securing 16 points from a match for only the second time this season. Lets hope this the start of better things to come in the remainder of the season!

 

FIXED JACK PAIRS UMBRELLA

As we have received enough interest in the above event we will hold the first round on Thursday,5th.July starting at 2.00 p.m. Those members who have shown interest have been sent further details via email however this is still open to any Club members so if you would like to come along, the main details are as follows.

The competition will be played as a pairs game. The pairs will be drawn each time we play so this means that you may play with a different partner each week. The game will consist of 15 ends and there are 10 points available per end. Scoring will be as normal fixed jack i.e. 4pts for shot wood, 3pts for 2nd, 2pts for 3rd. and 1pt for 4th. The points scored are for the team that you are playing in on the day but your score will be carried forward each time you play.

We are planning to run the event on the Thursdays where we haven't got Club commitments for other matches. The dates it will run therefore will be Jul 5th/12th, Aug 23rd/30th.,Sep 6th./13

The cost of playing will be the princely sum of £1.00 per game.

This format is good for practicing your weight on long and short jacks. 

 

 

50/50 Club

In future we will be publicising the winners of the 50/50 Club draws that is administered by Richard Phinn.

The June winners were as follows:

6th.June - K.Leamon  £10.00

                 D.Eigelaar  £ 5.00

19th.June  M.Robins   £10.00

                  D.Eigelaar £ 5.00

                  K.Leamon  £10.00

                  R.Phinn      £ 5.00

 

Would all members on the Green rota please remember that grass cuttings from the green should not be tipped into the space behind the green wall on the tennis courts side of the green. Sue & Graham have spent a great deal of time planting along this side of the green to enhance  the area so please dispose of the cuttings behind the Clubhouse.

General News - Please read

Wednesday evening Umbrella

We have re-instated the Wednesday evening umbrella tournament along side the triples league matches so there is no excuse not to come along on a Wednesday evening for a roll-up or join in the Umbrella, and,of course the bar will be open whether you are playing or just watching. If you are new to the Club this is a great way to get to know other Club members.

Cost to play the umbrella is £1.00 and played over 12 ends.

Thursday afternoon fixed jack pairs umbrella

We are hoping to reinstate the Thursday afternoon pairs competition in the format of a fixed jack competition. Details are listed below

In view of the number of new members we have recruited in the Club, the committee feels that we should try and offer more opportunities
to learn & play.

Therefore we are looking at the possibility of reinstating the Thursday afternoon pairs competition in a new format that will be as
follows.

It will take the form of a pairs fixed jack umbrella competition run over the seven Thursdays left in the season that are not already committed to other matches. This is a fun format and helps players to adjust their speed of delivery to short and long jacks.


The dates would be 5th.July, 12th.July, 2nd.Aug, 23rd.Aug, 30th.Aug, and 6th.Sept. & 13th.Sept.
 
It will be played over 15 ends and unlike the Club Fixed Jack Comp all fifteen ends will be played irrespective of the score, so there
will be 150 pts to be won in each match.

Pairs will be selected and seeded in order that a mixture of experience/novice can be evenly spread.

The cost will be £1.00 per match played on a, pay as you play, arrangement.

For those of you not familiar with the fixed jack format it works as follows:

There will be a minimum jack position and a full-length jack position.

These are marked on the green and the jack remains on these spots throughout the game.

If a wood hits the jack off the spot then the jack is re-spotted before the next wood is bowled.

The scoring is very simple. The closest wood to the Jack scores 4pts, second wood scores 3 pts.,third wood scores 2pts.,fourth wood scores 1pt. So a total of ten points for each end played.

At the end of the match each player gets the number of points won by the pair.

The person with the most overall points after the seven weeks will be declared the winner.

This is open to all Club members and will be beneficial to many of our newer members.

If you are interested in participating in this competition please let Mike know by email by Tuesday, 19th.June.

Coaching in July

We will be holding coaching sessions on Monday mornings during July, this will be open to all members but especially for our members new to the game of bowls and will cover all aspects of the game including the etiquette of the game. So please do come along as there will be something for most people to learn about the game.

Invitation Triples Competition

This event is happening tomorrow afternoon commencing at 1.30 p.m.

It would be nice to see as many members as possible attending this annual event even if you are not actually playing.

FORTHCOMING MATCHES

We have four friendly matches coming up between now and the end of the month which are ideal opportunities for new members to actively get involved and gain experience of match play.

The dates for these matches are

Tues 19th.June v CHARMOUTH (Home) start time 2.30 pm

Sat 23rd.June   v CHARD (Away) start time 2.30 pm

Sun 24th.June  v SEATON (Home) start time 2.00 pm

Fri 29th.June     v LYME REGIS (Away)  start time 2.00 pm

Squeezed in between these fixtures is a league match versus our local rivals West Street, on the 21st.June,away, starting at 2.30 pm. This is an opportunity to end bragging rights for a couple of months before the return fixture in September.

 

Triples League Reminder

For your information the remaining rounds for the league will be as follows;

RD 4 20/6
RD 5 27/6

The chart below was found by Dave Brolly who felt that this would be of interest for members that are either new to the Club or members that are considering changing their woods.

League match v South Petherton

Saturday,5th.May saw us gain our first league win of the season at home to South Petherton. The match was played in glorious sunshine and was a close contest right up to the final delivery. With three rinks finished and SJBC two up overall it was left to Ken Leamon's rink to secure the victory. On the 20th.end it looked as though we might concede the match as Ken's team were four down with just the two skips to bowl, however with his second wood Ken rolled in to win the end by one shot to level the scores going into the final end. Some great bowling by the team on the final end gave them a three shot win to secure the overall win by 82 to 77.

S.J.B.C. Open Day

Next Sunday, 13th.May is our designated Open Day. This will commence at 10.00 a.m. and finish around 4.00 p.m. Thanks to Geoff Kerr, the event has been well advertised so we are hoping to have a good response. Tea/Coffee & biscuits  will be available to anyone that turns up to have a go.

We would like to have as many members as possible come along at some point during the day to help, either with the refreshments, coaching or playing in a roll-up.

S.J.B.C. Pom Pom Display

 The "Crafty Girls" got the Pom Pom feeling recently and as you can see made a display featuring the Club logo now displayed on the end  wall of the changing rooms.

 

 

 

 

At last the new outdoor season is underway but so far the results haven't gone our way.

The opening of the green was washed out without a wood being bowled and the opening friendly match against Yeovil that traditionally has been played in warm sunny weather was abandoned, one end after the tea break due to the wind and rain.

The good weather we enjoyed on Thursday & Sunday did not inspire our bowling and resulted in two defeats against Wellington & Castle Cary.

At tea time on Sunday we had a narrow advantage of 7 shots but after tea three of our four rinks had a torrid time between ends 13 -19 conceding 31 shots without reply which condemned us to defeat at the end of the match by 25 shots.

Next up are two Friendly matches at home to Chard and Ilminster this coming weekend so let's hope that the weather is kind to us and that we can improve our results.

 Severalls Sharks - TORQUAY 2017
 

A group of 18 of us enjoyed 5 days bowling at Torquay recently.

We had 14 bowlers and 4 non bowlers and we were again joined by a team from Bromley. Over the week we had mixed results but ended up winning 2 matches and losing 2. The weather was very kind to us so we were able to get out and about around Torbay. The hotel looked after us very well and we will be booking again next year.Report & photo by curtesy of Tony Robins.

SJBC Club Finals Day

For once the weather forecast for the weekend was accurate and it was a great call to bring finals day forward by 24 hours so that the day could be enjoyed in sunny and warm conditions. A  big well done and thanks to Roy & Sue for re-arranging at such short notice.

It was a long day for everyone concerned and additional thanks must go to Ann L & Sheila R for organising the catering, Bob for cooking the B.B.Q., Alec & Christine for bar duties and Sue A as official photographer. Also everyone that provided additional cakes, desserts and raffle prizes to make this a great day.

The matches were all played in a friendly spirit and it was good to see that a number of members succeeded in winning for the first time, last but not least thanks to club members who were not playing but came along to support the event including our two newest members Ann & Brian L.

SJBC Invitation Triples, Wednesday 16th.August

The annual Invitation Triples competition was held last Wednesday with teams fro Crewkerne, South Petherton, Chard , Donyatt & Chardstock competing with five teams from Severalls Jubilee.

The weather was kind to us all afternoon and everyone enjoyed the event which was once again sponsored by A.J.Wakely & Sons with prizes for the winners & runners-up provided by Ward & Sibley of Yeovil.

Thanks go to all of our sponsors and our friends from the visiting clubs for making this an enjoyable afternoon.

A big thank you also goes out to all of our members that assisted in running the event in various capacities, without you we wouldn't be able to stage these events.

 

     

 

 

            It was a close finish between two of Severalls teams and was decided on shot difference with the smallest of margins - one shot!

  

 

 

 

 

Triples League

The triples league is rapidly becoming a two team race with teams A & E(The Lads) level on points with only a difference of plus nine shots separating the two teams. They play each other in the next round on the 23rd.August which could prove decisive as there will only be two matches after that to complete the league.

See the Triple league tab for league table and results

Australian Pairs Competition

Congratulations to Geoff & Graham who will be presented with their awards at the Annual Presentation lunch at the Hornsbury Mill on Sunday,19th.November.
