5k Handicap - Summer Route

27/04/2011 20:15:02

As we saw in the April Prom race, the sea front promenade is now quite busy in the evenings and therefore we need to move the 5k Handicap route to an alternative location. To that end, Ian Carpenter has worked out an alternative route starting and finishing near Morrison's supermarket. Below is a link to a draft version of the Spring/Summer 5k handicap course route.

We are also working on a new section of the wesbite to give you all access to to your previous times and current handicap timings. Watch this space for more details!

WAC Bowling Night

03/04/2011 19:35:33

When?
6.45pm, Friday 6th May

Where?
AMF Bowling, Weston

How much?
GBP10 per person

Wondering what could possibly top the excitement of the royal wedding? Worried it might just be down hill all the way after the street parties and BBQs? Well, there are still places left for the club's annual bowling night. The price is just GBP10 and includes two games, two drinks and nibbles. Partners are welcome too. And there's also a trophy for the player with the highest score over both games.

If you haven't already done so, and you're planning on coming along, can you let me have your name no later than the 10th April? You can e-mail me using the link below, add your name to the bowling night listing under the events calendar, call me on 01934 830109, text me on 07586 908885 or add your name to the bowling night listing under the events calendar, If you could let me have your GBP10 by the 10th, that would also be a help. I will be at Hutton Moor Tuesday nights to collect names (and cash) and at Burnham this Thursday.
