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.
