Thank you to everyone who has agreed to play or helped out so far, there are people who may be in the team/reserves who have already told us that they can't make it, don't worry. We're in the group of 3 this year, the other team in this group is ***bria that we hammered last season, so qualification is a real possibility. East Midlands are a very good side, but there is absolutely no reason why we can't do this.

There's no better catalyst to a great bowls performance than a crowd in good spirits supporting their home team, so if you can make it on Sunday (2pm start) why not come down & support the team, it's going to be a beautiful sunny day apparently. Honestly anyone & everyone is invited, this is a team that represents the Birkenhead league & therefore all bowlers (and anyone from the area for that matter) so don't hesitate to come down if you fancy it. There will be a raffle & there's a drinks available at the bar as ever, and of course there aren't many better greens to sit around on a summer's day than Tixall. If you fancy a full weekend of bowls in the sun, the George O'Neill Pairs Finals are at Albany from 1pm on Saturday, featuring Gladstone, Ledsham Royal, Parkfield & the mighty Thingwall!

For players, practice is permitted at any time and if you fancy going down give me a call (07599655958) & I'll do my best to get down there with you. Team practice will be at 10am on the Saturday (20th May) before the George O'Neill Finals. The times that the green is being used is as follows:

Thursday 17th: Available between 4pm & 6.30pm
Friday 18th: Available until 6.30pm
Saturday: Available all day

If you fancy putting the attached poster up in your clubhouses for bowlers to see it would be greatly appreciated as we all know not all bowlers use the forum. Of course the best way of letting people know is through word of mouth, so why not mention it to your teammates tonight or on Friday?

Thank you all for your time & we'd love to see you there,
Robert Rogers - Birkenhead Parks Secretary
