Golf news

THE rain damp­ened the golf on Sun­day at Cal­liope bring­ing some mem­bers’ golf to an early close for the day.

Some Wowan mem­bers trav­elled to Cal­liope for their men’s golf cham­pi­onships and a del­uge of rain fell while play­ing the open golf cham­pi­onships.

It was just a pity that the rain never fell on the Wowan course. This Sun­day there will be a club com­pe­ti­tion. Draw time 12.30pm.


HAPPY birth­day wishes are ex­tended to Matthew Moretti, Bob Saun­ders, Terry Vick­ers, Steven Raine and cel­e­brat­ing their wed­ding an­niver­sary is John and Ros Gun­zler.

Have a great day ev­ery­one.

Week­end rain­fall

SOME rain gauges var­ied over the week­end.

Some places re­ceived good rain, but falls were dis­ap­point­ing in most ar­eas.

Fa­ther’s Day

WITH Sun­day be­ing Fa­ther’s Day, I would like to wish all the dad, grand­dads and great grand­dads a very happy Fa­ther’s Day.

I trust you are able to spend the day with your fam­ily and loved ones on one of your spe­cial days of the year, although I al­ways say, its Fa­ther’s Day every day.
