BOWLS NOTES

Ba­rooga Sports

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Open­ing day was held last Satur­day where we en­joyed a spi­der, two games of bowls and a won­der­ful tea sup­plied by our ladies.

It was a won­der­ful meal and ev­ery­one en­joyed the com­pany of their fel­low bowlers and all look for­ward to a suc­cess­ful year for sea­son 2017-18.

On the Fri­day be­fore the open­ing day we had an equal record crowd of 52 bowlers en­joy­ing the day where the winners in this large crowd were John Sul­li­van and Di Nye with a score of +24 with the run­ners-up be­ing Archie El­lis and Neville Walsh with +19.

Also on +19 but with less num­ber of ends won were Karen Bruce and Mary Hoog but they did man­age to win the best sec­ond game with +16.

Best first game winners were Carol Wigg and Kevin Kennedy with +12

Lots of things hap­pen­ing now that the sea­son is get­ting un­der way with Mur­ray Bowls open­ing day on Septem­ber 10.

Un­for­tu­nately this clashes with our prac­tice match at Corowa, but if you wish to at­tend get your name down on the no­tice board at the club.

Prac­tice match teams will be se­lected to­day (Wed­nes­day) and all in­volved will be con­tacted to ar­range travel, etc.

First trade day is to­mor­row (Thurs­day) so get your teams to­gether and ring up Nathalia and come along to the first trade day of the year.

The week af­ter, Septem­ber 14, the trade day will be at Ba­rooga so keep that date in mind also.

Med­ley pairs is on Tues­day, Septem­ber 12; names are needed for this event as well.

Ladies’ trade days start to­day (Wed­nes­day) at Co­bram.

This is a new con­cept for the ladies who, see­ing how suc­cess­ful it is for the men, have de­cided to give it a go, so ladies, form your teams of three and get down to Co­bram for the first ever ladies’ trade day.
