(5th December 2015). For the delectation of our other Members a report has been attached of a recent experience by one particular Member of a closer association with the Grim Reaper than he would have chosen, although fortunately the blade was off target. See here.
(28th November 2015). The annual Hot Pot Supper took place last evening, with the usual suspects present plus a couple of new faces, which is always interesting. Pix below, courtesy of Maurice.

(1st September 2015). Recently the Executive Council took the decision to approve an examination of the Association's Constitution, with the intention to amend the existing version to recognise the various changes which had already been voted through at AGMs and to acknowledge the significant changes in society and culture since the previous "official" issue. However even a cursory reading showed that amendment was not an option - the need was for a complete re-write. To this end a preliminary exercise has been undertaken to prepare a draft of a new version, for Members' comments and suggestions. The Council's intention is to prepare a final draft for presentation to, and approval by, Members at the 2016 AGM. The existing version, dated September 1965 and published March 1967, can be seen here. The current draft of the amended version can be seen here.
PToday - 2nd July 2015 - saw the annual PGSA Masters Bowling Competition take place at Guy's Thatched Hamlet at Bilsborrow. The event, beautifully organised as usual by Tony Olivine, was an overall success - marred only by Tony himself taking a tumble and breaking his left hip. He is now incarcerated in the Royal Preston Hospital awaiting surgery to install a new one. Our commiserations and good wishes go to Tony and Jen, who will be pleased to receive contributions to the RPH car park fund.
