On Satur­day, in pic­tureper­fect weather, the in­au­gu­ral Frank Dunk­ley Memo­rial Shield was con­tested at Co­bram be­tween Co­bram and Strath­mer­ton.

This event hon­ours Frank Dunk­ley, who was a stal­wart mem­ber of both clubs.

Each club fielded six teams of fours and the games were played in the spirit that would have made Dunk­ley proud.

While the shield, do­nated by Dunk­ley’s fam­ily, was won by Co­bram, all are look­ing for­ward to the chance next year to spend a day on the green at Strathy re­mem­ber­ing Dunk­ley.

It was also a good chance for a pre-pen­nant hit-out and an­other 24 Co­bram play­ers en­joyed an in­tr­a­club game — also won by Co­bram.

The 2018-19 pen­nant sea­son starts this week.

On Fri­day the divi­sion side one will play Fin­ley at home, but divi­sion two has re­ceived a for­feit from Tocumwal Golf (3) and will prac­tise at home at 10 am.


Pen­nant starts this week­end with Fri­day pen­nant on Oc­to­ber 12.

Teams for Fri­day and Satur­day pen­nant are posted on Team App and, of course, our usual places such as the news­pa­per and no­tice­boards.

Af­ter Satur­day pen­nant there will be a casse­role tea af­ter all teams are back in club­house. Please at­tend to make the night a great suc­cess.

Mon­day women’s so­cial day re­sults for Oc­to­ber 1 saw bowlers play­ing triples where Elaine Bl­iz­zard, Liz Ewing and Carol Cox ran out the win­ners.

On Wed­nes­day, the club hosted the fi­nals of the 60-and-over men’s and women’s pairs.
