Robinson Cup back ‘home’ as Wowan wins again
WOWAN has won the 2018 Robinson Cup.
Congratulations to Brian Moretti, Phi Moran, Daryl Myles and Shaun Antcliff on winning this year’s event.
More than 160 golfers played in this team event at the Tieri Golf Course with 23 clubs represented.
Wowan has won this event about 7-8 times, so this is a wonderful achievement for a small club. The Robinson Cup is a prestigious trophy for the Central Qld and Central Highlands golfers.
The Wowan players played well with Shaun winning a trophy for the best gross (70) and Daryl Myles was runner-up with his 75 gross. The Wowan team also won the carton of beer prize.
Sunday is the third and final round of the BMW Shield which will be played at the Baralaba Golf Course.
Names to be in by 9.30am sharp with a 10am shotgun start.
Baralaba Golf Course now has a compulsory tee up all over the course through to the green.
The Baralaba club would like all members to notify club captain Shai Pearce if you are playing, so they can arrange the sharing of motorised buggies.
Wowan is in the lead after round 2. This is the final round, so good golfing.
Uniting Church service
SUNDAY morning was the first church service in the Uniting Church since the 2012 floods.
The floods swept through the church grounds, making foundations unsafe. The church was later moved to the museum grounds. Renovations have been undertaken over several years and now the Uniting Church parishioners welcome their new church.
Parishioners from all denominations gathered for this service celebration on Sunday which was conducted by Pastor Donna Muston.
TOMORROW night, if you are up for some trivia and a night of fun, the Wowan Progress Association invites you to their Trivia Night.
It is being held at the Wowan Bowls Club, with team nominations to be registered by 6.30pm with a 7pm start.
It is $10 per person which includes light supper (maximum of 4 people per team), lucky door and there will be a multi-draw raffle.

NEXT Tuesday the Wowan/Dululu MPC is holding a morning tea in the grounds of the Wowan Museum.
The Wowan museum houses many old and historic items and they welcome you to spend a morning out in “Our Backyard”. The morning gets under way from 10am and morning tea is $2. For catering purposes, if you would like to attend, contact the MPC.
