Sun shines on Wednesday social bowls

BOWLS: Twenty-two players enjoyed an afternoon of Wednesday social bowls and this week there was fortunately no rain to interrupt play.

The winning team was Herb Secomb, Russ Jackson, Gary Smith and Steve Tattam defeating Lyn Graham, John Fielding, Neil Crossley and Margo Stanley by the closest winning margin 17-16.

Apologies to the business house bowls teams that showed up to play.

Business house bowls will recommence on February 6.

Ronny catered for the evening and will be doing so again this week.

All are welcome, but bookings are necessary please.

Any business group wanting a fun Wednesday night in this 10-week competition please register interest with club manager Jayne Isgro either on facebook or by contacting the club.

Peter Barrett helped with the coaching then doubled as the chef and cooked the barbecue sausages.

Thongs were scattered at the edge of the green and plenty of bare feet graced the rinks.

The winners were, first Margo Stanley, second Tony Whitehorn and third Nik Fernbach.

Australia Day will be celebrated at the club on Saturday with a flag raising ceremony, a cooked breakfast and a game of bowls, and this will replace scroungers for the day.
