Sussex Past Presidents Association.  It gives me great pleasure to take over from Allan Hilton who after 26 years has finally decided hes done his bit.  Many thanks to Allan for all he has done to keep the Past Presidents Association going.  We are looking to recruit players to add to our pool of pressed men to play for the association both indoors and outdoors.  We have around 13 games each year both indoors and out and almost all require 6 rinks.  Of the current past county presidents only a dozen or so are still bowling and for every game bar one we look to press players into playing.  We currently have around 15 regulars who support us but we would like to recruit a few more.There is no joining fee to be an associate member.  The only criterion is that you may have or currently hold a position in your club or the county.  If you are interested, our fixture list can be found on the Past Presidents page on the website.  Please contact the Secretary/ Treasurer direct to register your interest.  We look forward to you joining us.
