UPDATE - 26th August 2021

 

The Committee Meeting took place on Thursday 12th August 2021 - 7.30pm at the Syston & District Social Club - where we discussed the 2021-2022 Season and various plans for how this could be configured. More information to follow. Team Entry Forms will be out very soon and this will form a basis for how the 2021-2022 Season will be formed.

Various 'Averages' details have been updated.

 

 

UPDATE - 26th February 2021

 

The Committee wish to report that we have recently written to our chosen charity, LOROS, to reaffirm our commitment to the wonderful work they continue to carry out on behalf of patients, their families and carers in what has been a difficult year for all, none more so than for those involved in the vital fundraising activities on which they rely so heavily. We have forwarded a cheque for £1,500 which matches our support for the previous year and have received a kind letter of appreciation by return, a copy of which we will try and add to the website shortly.

 

The Committee were very sad to learn of the recent passing of our former General Secretary, Sue Russell. Organisations such as ours cannot function without the dedication of people like Sue who give their time and energy to work behind the scenes and Sue's attention to detail when handing the role over to her successor was pivotal in helping to facilitate the continuation of the League at a difficult time in its history. We send our sincere condolences to Andre as well as all family and friends. In accordance with Andre's wishes the League have made a donation of £100 to be divided equally between Cancer Research and Marie Curie Cancer Care. 

 

Sadly, we also learnt recently of the passing of Dave Whait from the 'Carington Arms'. Dave was a well known character within local skittling circles for many years and I'm sure we can all vouch for the fact that an evening in Dave's company was never short on entertainment. He will be much missed by colleagues and friends alike.

 

Now that we have the government's "roadmap to freedom" we must start to think about what the League may look like going forward. With this in mind, Val will shortly be writing to all Team Secretaries with a view to starting the process of gauging both the level of interest among the playing membership along with the potential availability of the various venues as we head towards the Autumn and a potential re-launch of the League. There is no denying it's been a difficult twelve months for everyone but the promise of a return to "normality" and the chance to rekindle our social lives will hopefully be reflected in the levels of enthusiasm for starting to get ourselves out there again in the evenings and to once again enjoy what we probably used to take for granted ... namely, a nice pint, good friends, "interesting" conversation, a hot supper and a much missed night of skittles. Shortly, we will hope to set a date for a long overdue Committee Meeting to discuss all our options in the future once we have clarity on where and how we can meet up.

 

Regards, Chris
