Central Telegraph - - LIFE MY TOWN - WOWAN/DULULU DONNA REYNOLDS P: 4937 1186 E: news­room@cen­tral­tele­graph.com.au

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.

Trivia night

TO­MOR­ROW night, if you are up for some trivia and a night of fun, the Wowan Progress As­so­ci­a­tion in­vites you to their Trivia Night.

Mu­seum morn­ing tea

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.
