Murder Mystery evening

We had a very successful Murder Mystery evening at the Club on Saturday 19th March, due to the hard work of Paul and Marion Rainthorpe who prepared and ran the evening, with the support of the rest of the Social Committee.  The actors were brilliant and the script kept us all guessing and resulted in only two teams correctly identifying the 'murderer'.  Many members got into the spirit of the evening and dressed appropriately, some photos are shown below.  Many thanks to everyone who made the evening such a success!!

Petanque goes from strength to strength with 27 petanque members and several full members all enjoying playing throughout the year.  It is a very social time, particularly on Sunday mornings when many members will be seen enjoying a game of petanque, after which they will be found socialising in the lounge.

Following a very successful and enjoyable New years Party organized by the Clubs Social Committee the first competitive match of the new year was played on the 21st of January between Ross Petanque and Monmouth Petanque on the prepared Pistes at Ross BC. It was typical January weather and the Monmouth contestants can be congratulated for turning up in force. As everyone knows Monmouth is in Gwent, so it could be described as an International event and the Ross Ladies and Gents can be proud that they have won this fixture both home and away to date.

It appears that the Monmouth Petanque team are at a loss on how to beat Ross at the game. On Sunday the 15th of April the Ross contingent travelled to Wales and playing them on their own Turf (or should we say Piste) overcame them 12-3. Having said that, we thank them for their generous welcome - fine hospitality, and wish them better luck next time !! They are proud of their facilities and rightly so, and like Ross three years ago it was all but a pipe dream.
Chris and Ginny
Thanks go to Chris and Ginny who dispense the necessary tipple from the members bar at RBC to the Sunday morning Petanque players.
