As well as the Lowestoft League mixed team, Bungay will also re-enter a men’s team in the City League in Norwich.
Treasurer Paul Cunningham reported the club was reasonably placed financially, but with fundraising ideas discussed – including a sponsored cycle ride, stall at the Diamond Jubilee and the annual quiz set for October 13.
Winter play is Monday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Saturday summer play starts April.
Officers elected: president Terry Reeve; chairman Ian Forder; captain Juliet Whyte; secretary Sarah Watts; treasurer Paul Cunningham; City League captain Jamie; tournament committee Paul Cunningham, Juliet Whyte, Ian Forder; committee member Craig Frost plus two others; BDSA representatives Ian Forder, Paul Cunningham, Juliet Whyte.
Other Beccles and Bungay sport
Sunday saw the first cross-country meeting of the 2014/2015 Suffolk Winter League set around the picturesque Castle Meadow, Framlingham.
Sailors enjoyed the penultimate series D races in high water and a strong south westerly breeze on the Waveney on Saturday. Richard Baylis was able to set a beat at each end of the full course with a long fetch. A good start had Tim Revell in his Laser Windy Bottom first to the windward mark with Rory Kelsey in Tankard pointing high close behind. Folkard was out after an early death roll while a superb double gybe kept Kelsey out of trouble. Revell was first to take the bell but was second on corrected time to Kelsey with Rowan Curtis third. Winds eased for race two which suited Simon Strode and Julie Walker in their Enterprise Amelia as they put in a perfect performance. Meanwhile Curtis and Folkard were having a close race but after 35 minutes Curtis finished 15 seconds ahead remaining two points clear on the leaderboard.
