Our bowling is like the weather at the moment, all over the place, hot and cold.
We have been experiencing both highs and lows and the results clearly reflect this.
The midweek sides are managing to get some points from their matches although overall wins are proving a little elusive.
Last Saturday’s weekend pennant matches saw the Division 4 side completely outplayed by their Shepparton Park opponents with no points to show for their efforts.
At the other end of the green the Division 6 side managed to defeat their Dookie opponents by the narrow margin of one shot; well done to all involved especially Iris and Ruth who made themselves available to play for Dookie.
The lists are on the noticeboard for the Midweek Championship competition and the Weekend 100 Up; those players interested in entering are asked to put their names on these lists as soon as possible.
Get well wishes are sent to Mary; great to see her at the club on Saturday.
Blue continues his recuperation — hope to see him back on the green shortly.
As always players are asked to check the noticeboard for upcoming events and/or news.
Friday social barbecue was enjoyed by a crowd who enjoyed the social atmosphere on the verandah.
The Taurus Meat Tray raffle was won by Andrew Payne with the Breakfast Tray going to Alice Hall and the Fowles Wine being won by Wilma Atkins.
The Members Draw number five went to Rob Baldwin who was not at the club to collect the prize.
