Second and third places were taken out by Helen Deighton with 74 nett on a count back from Anna Winterbourn.

The pin shots went to Elspeth Scotford on six and Lyn Muller on nine.

Special thanks to Mary Hedgelong who, although she wasn’t playing, came to have a chat, share afternoon tea and did the washing up so we could have maximum time playing.

With the slightly cooling weather and the request of those who have been attending, Sunday bowls will now return to a 1pm start from March 13.

Names in by 12.30pm please.

Wednesday bowls will continue with our two sessions on offer, being a 10am start, names in by 9.30am, and a 1pm start, names in by 12.30pm.

Head along for one session or both for the same cost of $10 green fees.

Why not bring along your lunch and stay for both sessions?
