The club plays league matches on Thursday evening. It also holds social sessions on Tuesday afternoons (1.45 – 2.45pm) alongside the Ryedale IBC social sessions. The club hosted its High-Five competition on January 19th and will be holding its Richard Lund open competition on Saturday February 19th at Ryedale Indoor Bowls Club.

Upgraded Lighting
New lights were installed during the summer months. The new LED lights are slightly brighter, cheaper to run and easier to maintain than the neon lights they replace.

Social Bowling 2018/19
Social sessions are held throughout the winter on Tuesday afternoons (2.30 – 4.30pm),   Thursday mornings (10.30am -12.30pm) and Sunday mornings (10.30am -12.20pm). Both members and visitors are welcome. Visitors are sometimes welcome at the sessions held by groups from Driffield (Monday 12.30 – 2.30pm, Tuesday 12.30 -2.30pm) and Sleights (Friday 12.30 – 2.30pm)

Winter season 2018/19
The next season will start in early September. Enrollment and free bowls 3rd – 5th September. League matches will begin on Monday 10th September and continue through to Friday 21st December 2018 then from Monday 7th January to Friday 19th April 2019

Summer season 2019
Social sessions will be held on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings

Christmas break 2018/9
In previous years few comments have been about the arrangements for the Christmas break. There seems no solution that satisfies everyone’s needs. Taking the holiday period as including both Christmas Eve and January 2nd, the holiday spans 10 days. That is a tight fit if we take a two-week break but it should be recognised that many members would object if we were to take a three-week break. The sensible solution seems to be that we are flexible. So although leagues are scheduled to end on 21st December teams not wanting to play close to Christmas are encouraged to re-arrange matches. The club will be open on the mornings of Wednesday 2nd through to Friday 4th January 2019 for catch-up matches plus roll-up. (Please note there are no free sessions.) League matches restart on Monday 7th January.

Proposed events:  Monday Night Bingo sessions will continue as normal.
(21st January, 18th February, 18th March and 15th April)
