OUR mid week team started its pennant matches yesterday playing host to Shepp Park. We wish them a happy and successful season.
Tomorrow we are having a visit from Hill Top for a practice match and a meal. Play will be from 4.30pm till 6pm. If you still feel like playing after dinner you will be most welcome to come out and enjoy our visitor's company. There is no need to wear uniforms and there is no charge for this event. We still need more Merrigum players to make up sufficient numbers for the evening. Please contact Joe on 0428 552 466 if you can play. The caterers would appreciate any donations of sweets or salads for this Hill Top visit.
On Saturday, October 7 we are having an inter club pennant match beginning at 1pm. Ladies and men are all most welcome.
The selectors really need to see who is available and who can potentially fill the vacancies in division four.
We have lost some players so this will be your chance to gain the selector’s attention. Please make every effort to be at this practice. No need to wear uniforms on this day.
The Pokie trip to Tocumwal is on Sunday, October 8. Bus leaves Kyabram at 9am and from Merrigum at 9.15 am. To reserve a seat please ring John on 0447 711 842.
On Sunday, October 15, we celebrate 50 years of bowling at Merrigum. We gather at 11.30am for a chat and a luncheon. The cost of the luncheon is $25.
All past players and their wives, children and friends are invited.
We believe we have contacted all our past members but if we have missed you, please ring Maureen on 5855 2421. Following the lunch we hope to have a game of bowls so please keep this in mind.
Our Saturday pennant begins on October 21 and we wish all clubs and all bowlers a happy and enjoyable season.
Best wishes to Rita, Wendy and Robert who are on the sick list at the moment.
