The Brian Dickensen Memorial Trophy – Langley
The event on Sunday was the annual Langley invitation. About 30 teams entered. It’s a brilliant day where each team plays 5 games of 6 ends and points are allocated for number of ends won plus overall score. Orpington had another team comprising the Wheatley’s and Whitehead’s. Both teams were joint runners up but my team was awarded the prize due to having 1 shot more. We got £50.
I played in this event with John Ouzman in 2014 and won the trophy and £100. Considering the strength and variety of teams on the day I think we did the Club proud.
The day finished with a really nice meal followed by the presentations. Of course, like any other event, the weather plays an important part and Sunday was glorious.

We had our first visit to Whitstable on Wednesday 6th September, they were very hospitable and we all enjoyed our time there.
UPDATE ON THE PREPARATION OF THE PETANQUE/BOULE COURT
The new Petanque/Boule court is ready.
Harry Lewis’s team of sturdy men at arms took time off from their morning work of preparing the Bowls Ground for the forthcoming season this week to put finishing touches to the new Boulle area at the club.
Work commenced on the new venture to have a Petanque/Boules facility at the club. A keen group of members turned up on Monday morning 6th February to make a start on the Court. There was of course considerable discussion and free advice on what should be done. Nevertheless, Harry Lewis ably supported by everyone; steered the mornings/afternoon work party to a very satisfactory start. Future work schedule will be advised shortly.
Despite appearances we did not all stand around watching Paul do all the work.
