Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - By AU­DREY MCIN­TOSH

ON a very windy day last Satur­day, di­vi­sion one played hosts to Kyabram for pen­nant at Euroa.

The wind was very tricky all day and both sides at times found it dif­fi­cult to know which hand to bowl but af­ter topsy turvy scores on most rinks, Euroa came out the win­ners by one shot – 86/85.

T Kingma (s), L Cock­ing, N Wal­ters, G Goode de­feated B Canute 27/18.

W O’Con­nor (s), J Wat­ters, M Stevens, B Do­herty de­feated P Ken­dall 21/16.

K Sut­cliffe ( s), J Groat, A Moore, L Fis­cher de­feated P Den­ham 24/20.

E Sel­lenger (s), D Cerini, W Tiller, J Dunn lost to P O’Brien 14/31.

Di­vi­sion four trav­elled to Kyabram and they too had a win – 87/75.

G Red­shaw (s), G Wil­liams, R Whitelaw, B Jen­nings de­feated M Boswell 24/16.

J Pearson (s), R O’Bree, L Havel­berg, M Cerini de­feated T Van­geldere 21/13.

M Wil­son (s), R Simp­son, I South, N Har­ris lost to B Lind­say 22/24.

B Dif­fey ( s), M Davey, C Dinge­mans, R Goldswor­thy lost to R Har­ri­son 20/22.

Di­vi­sion five played Shep­par­ton RSL at Euroa and lost to the vis­i­tors 43/73.

This Satur­day, di­vi­sion one are home to Tatura, di­vi­sion four are home to Shep­par­ton Park and di­vi­sion five are away at Nagam­bie.

Raf­fle win­ners on Satur­day were T Kingma and M Goode.

Cham­pi­onship matches, both sin­gles and pairs, are well on the way to be­ing played.

A pair’s match on Sun­day, be­tween Ken Sut­cliffe and Alan Moore against Ge­orge Har­ri­son and Dick O’Bree was a marathon af­fair, tak­ing 3 ½ hours with the re­sult be­ing in Ken and Alan’s fa­vor.

The win­ners of the Wed­nes­day triples were G Har­ri­son ( s), J Jen­nings and P Boz.

On Fri­day night, the club hosted a thank you evening to our very good spon­sors in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their sup­port of the club.

With­out this sup­port, clubs would find it hard to have spe­cial days.

Each Satur­day and Tues­day spon­sor boards, for scor­ing each game, are at the end of the greens.

So thanks go to these gen­er­ous busi­nesses for their sup­port as well as on spe­cial days such as tour­na­ments.

Trea­surer Peter Naughton in­tro­duced pres­i­dent Lor­raine Wal­ters to those present and wel­comed them on be­half of the club.

Ev­ery­one en­joyed the savouries and drinks and a chat to­gether.

Sev­eral apolo­gies were re­ceived from some of the spon­sors and mem­bers who could not at­tend.

Many peo­ple present were lucky raf­fle prize win­ners and they in­cluded Judy Jen­nings, Mar­garet Wat­ters, Ivy Mack­rell and Norma Whitelaw.

Some won­der­ful bowl­ing was wit­nessed on Sun­day.

The semi-fi­nals and fi­nal of the Goul­burn Valley sec­tion of the ‘ Men’s State Pairs’ were played at Euroa and some very good bowl­ing was wit­nessed by those for­tu­nate enough to watch them all day.

The first matches in the morn­ing were D Car­tright and G Schilling who played Kyabram team­mates R Sceney and J Anselm who won this match.

G Franze and Josh Thorn­ton ( East Shep­par­ton) played P Beecroft and R Hig­gins (Shep­par­ton Park) and the East Shep­par­ton pair own.

W and J Grib­ble (Shep­par­ton Golf) played D Car­tright and G Schilling and David and Greg were suc­cess­ful.

G Franze and J Thorn­ton played G Thatcher and D Kelly (Shep­par­ton Park) and Geoff and Josh won.

The fi­nal be­tween D Car­tright/ G Schilling and G Franze/J Thorn­ton was a very in­spir­ing match mainly played on long ends and with won­der­ful draw bowl­ing.

In the end David and Greg were the win­ners, 17/11 and they now go on to the re­gional fi­nals.

As well as our own bowl­ing days, Euroa has hosted other Goul­burn Valley days over the past cou­ple of weeks.

So we say a big thank you to green keeper Ken Sut­cliffe and his many helpers for the ex­cel­lent greens as well as the ladies in the kitchen for pro­vid­ing food on these days.
