It is with great pleasure that I accept the Presidency of the Southampton & District Bowling Association for 2016. I am very conscious of the great honour this appointment is for me.
I have been eager to be President for some time and now that the opportunity has arisen, due to clubs not being able to provide a President as per the club rota, I am looking forward to the challenge.
I sincerely hope that at the end of my term in office I will have justified your confidence and that we will be able to look back on another successful season having had a great deal of enjoyment and friendship.
Looking at the list of Past Presidents tells me that I will have to work hard to emulate their outstanding achievements. Perhaps I will be less formal than some of my predecessors but I hope this will not be too much of a disappointment to those of a more serious nature.
I hope that as competitive sportsmen we will not forget, win or lose, to offer a warm welcome to our opponents and visiting friends, so that we can all thoroughly enjoy participation in the game, or should I say “sport of bowls”, that gives us so much satisfaction and pleasure.
May I extend to all my best wishes for a successful season. Also my thanks to all the hard working Officers of the Association who make our District such a success, both on and off the Green.
Lastly may I thank my Club Atherley for allowing the District to use their facilities for meetings; competition finals and the Open Tournament.
Finally may I ask members to support our Association matches.
Derrick Fulker, S&D President 2016
