Open Day Report

Bank Holiday Monday we put out a tombola, a cake stall and a trophy table and invited the world to Huddersfield. And they turned up in droves. And we all had a great day.

There was lemon drizzle cake, chocolate cake, lemon dizzle cake, strawberry butterfly buns lemon drizzle cake and assorted fancies and fairies. And everything sold out!

The trophy table also attracted interest and most people liked to see the variety and picked up a bit more knowledge about how boules are made, how we play in leagues, have social events etc.

And many people came in and tried the game. Four of them joined on the spot and 2 more promised to do so. So overall it was a fantastic day which we will repeat next Bank Holiday Monday. ~ big bonus was that we raised £92-50 for club funds from the stalls and took £48 in membership fees. A total of over £150!

Thank you to all members who turned up early and helped set out the stalls and who offered free coaching and who gave up their time to help the club. Pictures soon in the Gallery.

Next year we’ll start at 12 o’clock.
