Du­ral Bowlers Get Off the Green for a Day

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

A very in­ter­est­ing and suc­cess­ful Fash­ion Pa­rade was held in the Ken­thurst Unit­ing Church Hall. An appreciative group of guests, re­plete from a sump­tu­ous home­cooked morn­ing tea en­joyed the pa­rade of cool weather clothes provided by Stafford fash­ions. The mod­els were from the play­ing mem­bers of the club ex­cept for the oblig­ing, and nat­u­ral, daugh­ter of the club’s hard work­ing sec­re­tary and all looked very smart and el­e­gant. There will be a lot of smart ladies shop­ping or play­ing in the hills area as it cools down. A num­ber of peo­ple were lucky enough to win one of the lovely raf­fle prizes.

Back on the green, 26 teams from as far as

New­port and Black­town com­peted in the Du­ral Au­tumn, spon­sored by Angli­can Re­tire­ment Vil­lages and TJ An­drews Funeral Ser­vices. Lunch was served in the court­yard, spe­cially dec­o­rated by the so­cial ladies and was de­clared de­li­cious and the weather, al­though hot, did not mar the qual­ity of the bowls. Beecroft ladies, Lyn Beau­mont, He­len Hynd and Jan Mor­ris won the day. The Run­ners up were from Black­town Work­ers with The Hills and Cas­tle tak­ing the mi­nor prizes.

While the ladies have been so­cial­is­ing the men have been very se­ri­ous with

Richard Thorp

(Right) win­ning the Ma­jor

Sin­gles ti­tle. One of the club’s young guns, he needed all his ex­pe­ri­ence to de­feat Phil

Bon­vino play­ing his first ma­jor fi­nal.
