Christmas Dinner 14 December 2013

Our "under 16 youth team" held their annual "Bash"  at the Ship Inn Tiptree, accompanied by their elders and "Mentors".
(Enjoy the photos, and see what we get up to when we are unleashed on the general public)

(sorry about the poor quality of the photos my 'phone battery was low,
so I couldn't use the flash)


The Following are Ron's Photos (much better!!!)


Oh! Yes! Our intrepid band of Freddy Mercury look-alikes
Took the opportunity to strut their stuff in the evening...
Definitely "We Are The Champions"
Sung in Falsetto, baritone and much waving of arms. 




Our Allen! What can you say....

Someone said this could be Bill! Nah! Mind you....
Do you remember Mr Pastry?

Went up the Shard Last Thursday
To Whet your appetite have a look at the view

The Lift takes 27 seconds to reach floor 33, then a second lift takes 20 seconds to reach floor 68, so smooth you don't feel any movement except your ears pop. On floor 68 you can use the interactive telescopes to view landmarks. You can then walk up two more flights of stairs to go "outside - yes really", only the glass and a metal grill to prevent you from cleaning the windows, see the photos of the very top of the building.
Nothing whatsoever about our bowls club, but thought you might like to see the views.


The Tower of London looks small

The Building under construction will be the new tallest building in London

This poignant self-portrait shows our Chairman Allen, contemplating his navel and gathering his thoughts in his den...An innovator, an example, a leader......Maybe? A Man who "rides easy in the saddle" (allen's words not mine). 


Message From Our chairman
      "You, the TK Bowls Club, are a club of individuals that enjoy playing bowls in a very friendly and convivial atmosphere. That is a gift. Your ability to accommodate those who just enjoy the "social-side" together with the  focussed purist is something you all contribute towards. This is a rare achievement. A club that has a great social atmosphere with a competetive edge....

    Long may this prevail...."
