Dear Daphne

 

Thank you so much for the lovely letter I received
from you today via email. I have printed it out and will post it on the notice
board at our clubhouse. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Torquay this year and
are very grateful that we were able to bowl on three days out of four. Being able
to bowl at the same venue and at the same time on your double greens, in such
lovely surroundings, was a great bonus. Your grounds-men should be proud of the
condition of your greens that enabled us all to bowl and enjoy the friendly
atmosphere amongst your club bowlers. It was certainly the highlight of our tour
and as it turned out our final game. On Friday we were rained off but we left
Torquay on Saturday morning in high spirits and feeling ready to start the new
season of bowling back at home in Newquay. 

We will most certainly return to the area again in the
future, meanwhile you might like to think of bringing a group from your club
down to Newquay on a day tour perhaps!  I
was surprised to realize that the coach trip only takes 2 hours. We have two
clubs here in Newquay who would be pleased to host a friendly game of bowls and
they are not too far apart.

Once again thank you for your assistance in helping to
make our 2018 tour a success.

Hi Daphne,

Thank you for your ‘letter’
re-our visit to your Club.

On our last night at the
Hotel we had our post Tour get together and everyone without exception had
nothing but praise for TCBC, they loved it.

I can’t pre-empt what they
will decided when I ask them which Clubs they want to visit or re-visit but I
would be most surprised if they missed you out.

We also enjoyed Marldon on
the Thursday so they would be in with a shout also.

I have asked Sarah at TLH
about perhaps having our two games on one day to be changed to Wednesday or
Thursday, she has left me a message to get in touch tomorrow before I head up
to Northumberland to play for Bowls Lancashire so I hope she has good news for
me.

I will see some of my
Tourists over the weekend and will be sounding them out, I keep telling them
that these kind of decisions have to made early due to all our host Clubs
commitments.

Please thank your members
again for us and wish you all a great season.

Peter

Dear Daphne and members of Torbay Country Bowls Club,

 

A very BIG THANK-YOU for what was a wonderful day
yesterday, the venue, the weather and most of all the people showed what
bowling is all about.

 

We both had some new bowlers and having spoken to some there
is no doubt how much they enjoyed the day, and that really goes for the rest of
us as well.

 

We would very much like to do a return match next year on a
date to be agreed and whilst we would love you to come to us, we would be more
than happy to do a return visit to you.

 

Again, many many thanks for a most enjoyable day.



Kindest regards,

Andrew Nicholson, 

Men's Secretary & Men's Match Secretary, 

Saltash Bowls Club.
