Acorns Charity Match - 18th June 2018
The Annual Acorns Charity match is now definitely going ahead with 19 players confirming their availability to date. We still need a few more to make up the full squad, so if you haven''t replied yet, please let me know. My thanks to Terry Moss for all the work he has put in to get the match organised.
If your club cannot make the match on 18th June, but would still like to make a donation, please send a cheque to our treasurer, Olive Tear, made payable to the Acorns Children''s Hospice Trust.
The response to this competition is again poor and as a result, the preliminary round on the 31st May has been cancelled with all entrants going through to finals day on 12th July. A full list of entries can be found on the Merits page.

Sad news from Kings Norton B.C.
Jim Taylor sadly died on Thursday 3rd May after a long battle with heart problems. He was the beloved husband of Eva and a devoted family man. He had been a prominent member of our club since 1980. He had been President, green keeper and was a very keen gardener. He also loved to fish and was on the Committee of the Birmingham Anglers Association and a member of the Legion Fishing Club. Both Jim and Eva bought a short mat for the club so they could take part in the short mat leagues, which they're doing well in. Jim was also President of the South West Birmingham Over 60's league and Vice President. He encouraged new bowlers and would always have time and advice for them.
Jim had a beautiful tenor singing voice and enjoyed singing with Eva in the Tinkers Farm Operatic Society.
Needless to say he will be sorely missed.
The funeral will be held at Lodge Hill Cemetery on Monday 21st May at 1.30 and after at Kings Norton Bowls Club.
Rest in peace Jim.
