Farewell to …..

Roger Merrick Dave Wilson Jeff Watson Roger, Dave and Jeff

At a dinner held in their honour on 26 August 2005 we bade farewell to three people who have served CACSSA for many years. The dinner was attended by the CACSSA President, committee members, staff and representatives from the affiliated clubs and their spouses.

Roger Merrick (left above) has been our groundsman for 30 years. He maintained the grounds to a high standard and regularly received praise from the visiting teams. He was presented with a set of coloured bowls and life membership of the association in recognition of his long and valuable service. He is succeeded by Martin Saunders.

Jeff Watson (right) resigned as Club Steward after 12 years with the club. He has been responsible for many of the improvements at the clubhouse including suggesting the restaurant service which is a regular feature every Monday to Thursday evening. The new steward is Phil Lewis who started on 21 November.

Dave Wilson (centre) retired as Manager of the clubhouse, a role he held since he retired from GCHQ. His duties have passed to Reg Rowley who lately has been co manager with Dave. We have not seen the last of Dave. He continues to work with the committees and liaises with other Civil Service departments in the area, and is Treasurer and past-Chairman of South-West Region of the CSSC. Instead of a gift the Management committee conferred on Dave the honour of Vice President in recognition of his past and continuing services to the club.

Also Gerald Wynn was given the honour of Vice President in recognition of his long and valuable service. Gerald is a former Chairman and President of CACSSA. He continues to represent the club in its negotiations with the local authorities over the lease of the clubhouse and the grounds. Geoff Hardy was our first Vice President.

Cricket

With the season now behind us, the club experienced a difficult time. Throughout this second season in their respective divisions, the 1st and 2nd XI encountered some strong opposition, and unfortunately have struggled. Both teams were unable to avoid relegation. However, despite some early concerns about availabilities, both have fielded teams and not had to cancel very many games. A full list of fixtures and results, and league tables, can be found on our web site at GCHQ.

In the Curtis Bennet competition we achieved some success, and were good enough to make it to the Quarter-Final stage. At this point the team came up against DSRA, who proved to be too strong on the day. Well done to all those involved. Results of this competition can be found using the link above.

The club has again entered a team in the indoor sixes competition held at Pittville Recreation centre. The club has had some success in this competition in the last couple of years, but it was not to be this season. As at the end of October the team was second from bottom in their division, with only one league fixture left to play.

We are still keen to recruit new players for the 2006 season. Players of all ages and standards are welcome, although we are particularly keen to recruit players to represent the 1st and 2nd XIs. Both these teams play on a Saturday. We also have Sunday and Midweek XIs for those interested. If you are looking for a club to join, or just require details regarding any aspect of the club you can find all the information and contact numbers on our web page at:

Rugby

Mark Butler (Chairman), Phil Cox (VEGA) and Terry Cann (Club President) with the 1st XV
Mark Butler (Chairman), Phil Cox (VEGA) and Terry Cann (Club President)
with the 1st XV, 2004/5 Inset is Player of the Year: Phil Whitehead.


The Cheltenham Civil Service Rugby Club (CCSRFC) has a new major sponsor for this season in System and Assurance group VEGA. The sponsorship has been made possible thanks to the effort of CCSRFC player and VEGA employee Phil Whitehead. Last season Phil was awarded Player Of The Year by the committee and also won the respect of fellow club mates who voted him Players’ Player Of The Year. On Saturday 22 October the sponsor’s account manager Phil Cox was invited along to the first of the season’s two Vice Presidents days and to watch the first team play against Gloucestershire Division One rivals Bream. Before the game Phil presented club chairman Mark Butler with a new set of team shirts (see picture). Although CCSRFC lost, Phil says he will be a spectator at many of the team’s games during the season.

Phil Cox and Mark Butler with one of the new shirtsCivil Service, newly promoted into Division One for 2005/6, got off to a flyer at the start of the season with a hard fought win over Cirencester but have yet to replicate that form in other league games. Injuries have taken their toll on the club and, with depleted numbers, have only been able to field two teams each week. A new recruitment drive is currently under way with the aim of bolstering club membership enough to field three sides on a regular basis.

Chairman Mark Butler has been with the club for over 25 years and is confident that, with injured players back, the first fifteen will soon be back into winning ways and that just a small influx of new blood into the club will strengthen the two lower sides.

If you are interested in competitive rugby and believe you have the skills to aspire to the first or second fifteens, or if you are interested in third team social rugby, then please give Mark Butler a call on 01242 522328.


Skittles

Bill Leach and Tim MaslingThe Player of the Year knock-out competition held on Wednesday 15 June 2005 was won for the third time by Bill Leach. He is shown here (left) just before the final game in which he beat Tim Masling (right).

Odds and Ends won the Presidents Shield.  They beat SAS 509 to 474 on Finals Night on Friday 17 June 2005.

The Summer League final on 3 September 2005 was fought between the two teams who came top in the summer league. A-Bombs beat Over the Odds 509 to 469.

Congratulations to all the winners!

So the 2004 and 2005 seasons ended successfully. We were disappointed that only 10 teams entered the winter league for the 2005-2006 season. At the time of writing Muffin Men are top of the table followed by A-Bombs with the same number of points.

Contact Brian Wood, skittlescacssacouk or on 01242 515941. If you would like to play but are not part of a team, there’s room for everyone. More details are available on our websites: http://www.gchq/societies/cacssa/skittles/index.shtml and www.cacssa.co.uk/skittles

Civil Service National Skittles Finals

CACSSA was once again pleased to host the Finals of the National Skittles competition on Saturday 14 May. Seven teams from around the country took part, having won their Regional contests. All three alleys at the Clubhouse were used and stickers, in two shifts, were provided by CACSSA.

The Midlands team emerged as victors, winning five of their six games, and losing only to Wales. Northern Ireland were runners-up with four wins, followed by Wales with three wins and the only tie of the day, against Scotland whose additional two wins left them just behind the South-West and South (each with three wins). This left the North West holding the wooden spoon, having lost all their matches!
Prizes were presented by Marion Holmes, Chief Executive of C.S.S.C. and the event was organised by John West of the Plymouth Club. Great enjoyment was evident throughout, enthusiasm for the games being complemented by the challenge of choice at the Bar!

SMOKING WITHIN THE CACSSA CLUBHOUSE

On Monday, 23 May 2005 the smoking policy at the clubhouse will change.

  • "No smoking preferred" signs will be displayed throughout the club.
  • There will be a total ban on smoking in the hall, toilets, kitchen, General Purpose room, office and committee room.
  • During weekday mornings and afternoons there will be a total ban throughout the building.
  • During Mondays to Thursdays there will be a ban on smoking in the Lounge.
  • During Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays smoking will be permitted in the Lounge but not next to the bar.
  • For private bookings of the Geoff Hardy Room and the Function Room in the evenings and at weekends the bookers will be asked to choose whether or not to permit smoking.
  • When the members' clubs are using the Geoff Hardy Room in the evenings and at weekends smoking will be allowed.

Receptacles for cigarette ends will be provided near the entrances to the building. Should anyone need to smoke during the no-smoking times, they will be asked to go to the patio area. Here there is protection from the weather and is away from the entrance.

Smoking has been allowed in the main public rooms of the CACSSA clubhouse, though not next to any of the bars and a "no smoking" sign is displayed in the upper seating area of the Lounge. Because of plans to refurbish some parts of the clubhouse and to provide an improved food service in the Lounge, but also with an eye on recent government proposals on smoking in restaurants/pubs/bars which prepare and serve food, the Management Committee deliberated on making these changes to our current arrangements. We hope everyone will co-operate with this new policy.

WHAT ELSE?

From May 24 we shall have a caterer on the premises every Monday to Thursday evening in order to offer a more extensive range of food. We intend to trial this using the dais of the Lounge bar as a restaurant area. The bar snack menu, which has become so popular in recent years will continue to be available unchanged. If you like you may pay using debit and credit cards.

New furniture and curtains have been purchased for both the Geoff Hardy Room and the Lounge Bar, and the décor of the Geoff Hardy Room has been improved. A new 42" plasma widescreen television will soon be installed in the Geoff Hardy Room. We hope to widen members' usage of the clubhouse as a result of these changes. Our intention is that the Geoff Hardy Room should revert to the original concept for use as the home for all our sports teams. If we achieve that satisfactorily, then it will open the way for further development of the lounge bar as a quieter area which can be the focus for members and their families who wish to use the club for social purposes.

There has been refurbishment of the children's play area and patching the tarmac in the car park. The tennis courts, resurfaced last year, have now been colour-coated in time for the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Tennis Club.

To improve the security of the grounds gates have been installed at the front entrance and these are locked at night. Concrete blocks and fencing have also been placed to help prevent access to the grounds by joyriders and travellers.

Rugby

CIVIL SERVICE RUGBY LEAGUE SEVENS - Tuesday 10 May 2005 @ Tyldesley RFC

A team from the Health & Social Security Recreational Association (HASSRA) Yorkshire & Humberside Region emerged as the winners of the inaugural Civil Service Rugby League Sevens at Tyldesley RFC's St George's ground, which was seeing rugby league for the first time in just over a century.

Five teams from Scotland and the north of England fought out a round robin competition, which saw some superb action. The finalists weren't decided until the very final game when HASSRA Yorkshire & Humberside took on CSSC North. A heavy defeat for the North would send HASSRA Scotland through to the decider but the North edged in despite losing 20-6. In the final, Yorkshire & Humberside repeated their 14-point win, this time by 14-0. Chris Dawson, Dan Tate and Danny Price, with his sixth of the tournament, scored tries, Price kicking two goals. The winners proved to be the superior outfit on the day, conceding just two tries in their five matches.

The Scotland side began with a draw against CSSC North before losing to Yorkshire & Humberside. Wins over DWP Bradford (18-12) and Bradford & District Inland Revenue (12-10) took them to within touching distance of the medals.

The CSSC North side contained players from Newcastle and Scotland and following their opening draw, enjoyed wins over DWP Bradford (14-10) and Bradford & District Inland Revenue (12-4) before their final, unsuccessful, showdown with HASSRA Yorkshire & Humberside.

It was not a happy tournament on the field for the Bradford sides. DWP went down in all four of their matches, though they made both the eventual finalists work hard for their wins, while the Revenue boys recorded a single win - 22-0 over their city rivals in the opening game of the competition.

Played in dry but cool conditions, the event was superbly organised and thanks go to referee Walter Johnston of the Wigan & District Referees Society, touch judge Nigel Wachs of the Southern Referees Society and Tyldesley RFC for their generous hospitality.

 

RESULTS:    
  DWP Bradford   0 – 22 Bradford & District Inland Revenue
  HASSRA Scotland 10 – 10 CSSC North

Cricket Club

With the season over, the club looked to the annual Indoor six-a-side competition, which took place at the Pittville Cricket Centre between October and December. The club had another good year, finishing top of its Division and then progressing to the Semi-Final Of the Cup competition. Results of matches were:

Date Opponents Result
Oct 5th Woodmancote Won by 5 Wickets
Oct 12th Winchcombe Won by 4 Wickets
Oct 26th Chedworth Won by 58 runs
Nov 2nd Down Hatherley Cancelled
Nov 16th Coombe Hill & Boddington Won by 3 Wickets
Dec 1st Woodmancote (1st round Cup) Cancelled (Won by walkover)
Dec 7th Tewkesbury (Quarter-Final) Won by 18 runs
Dec 12th Hatherley & Reddings (Semi-Final) Lost by 4 Wickets

Well done to those who participated:  Andy Williams, Martin Williams, Mark Febery, Steve Bridge, Mike Meredith, Chris Pollard, Stuart Russell and Matt Wheatley. The team can now look forward to playing in the Top Division (a first for the club).

With the festive season over, it is time to start looking to Summer 2005. With this in mind, the club will soon be holding indoor net sessions. Dates for the nets will be published once confirmed.

 

Inter Departmental Cricket is Changing!!!!!!

In an effort to combat fading interest IDC has undergone an overhaul. This year it will be 8-a-side and the matches will be 15 overs a side. This means you can still catch the buh duh da boom bit in Eastenders should you so wish. The games start at six (allegedly) and are held at the excellent facilities at the Civil Service Club, all equipment provided - just bring yourself and a natty pair of trainers.

IDC is still open to everyone at GCHQ, it matters not what size, shape or ability you are, you will find a home for your cricketing ambitions here, so if you want to improve or stagnate or if you just need to get out of the house for a few hours IDC could be the answer.

Would all those interested in putting a team together, or those who are teamless but wish to play please get in contact with Allan Gobey on x33613

For full details regarding any aspect of the club, or if you are interested in playing, you can find all the information and contact numbers on our web page at:
