It has been a busy week with the Yackan­dan­dah tour­na­ment on Wed­nes­day, November 8 and the Sally Sy­monds 4B at Wan­garatta on Fri­day.

The team that went to Yackan­dan­dah did not come home with the bowl but who cares.

Lisa But­ter­worth had a good score 36 pts, r/u in A grade, well done Lisa. Jenny Wil­liams got a NTP so all was not lost. This be­ing the last round of Drum­mond chal­lenge, H. Eg­gle­ston won the B grade event with 132 points over the four rounds, lucky be­cause she had a bad day at Yack, R. Davies from Yack won the A grade with 133 pts and also won the over­all event.

The club’s An­nie Sin­clair would have won C grade if she was able to at­tend but she was in hos­pi­tal. Ju­niors Boy it’s get­ting hot and the flies are very an­noy­ing.

There was only two brave lit­tle souls lined up this week and Alf took them for chip­ping and putting.

There will no ju­niors on Satur­day, November 18 and on November 25 will be the last for the year – the ju­niors will have holes and then pre­sen­ta­tion and a wrap for the year.

Hope to see Joseph back on November 25 as he was miss­ing on Satur­day.

MRVGA Group 25 – Corowa Vets Golf This month’s event was played on Mon­day, November 13 at the Corowa Golf Course and apart from the monthly event was an in­ter­club com­pe­ti­tion held an­nu­ally be­tween the How­long and Corowa veter­ans groups.

A field of 66, in­clud­ing two out-of-town vis­i­tors and ten ladies, com­peted in the two events.

The in­ter-club chal­lenge be­tween both How­long and Corowa Veter­ans groups with the top ten scores from each group de­ter­min­ing the win­ner of the shield for an­other year.

Af­ter some in­tense scru­tiny it was agreed that the out­come was a draw with both groups card­ing 350 Sta­ble­ford points each.

The shield will re­main with the pre­vi­ous win­ner – How­long CGC Veter­ans, at least un­til next year.

It was an­nounced that this in­ter-club com­pe­ti­tion is to be ex­panded to a 36-hole event to be held over two sep­a­rate days in 2018.

With the first game at How­long in April and the con­clu­sion at Corowa in November. The re­sults of the days game were; Ladies win­ner was A Bum­bers with 33 points on a h’cap of 20 with run­ner-up K Red­head on 37 from 32 h’cap.

Win­ner re­ceived a spon­sor’s voucher to the value of $25 and three golf balls went to the run­ner-up. The ladies run-down win­ners, each re­ceiv­ing a golf ball were; L Lawther 31, P Prescott 30, G Wil­son (vis­i­tor) 29 and P Cooper with 29 points. NTP win­ners also re­ceiv­ing a golf ball were L Lawther and J Wil­liams.

Men’s win­ners were; A Grade - R Fel­trin with a score of 37 off a h’cap of 18 with run­ner-up P Red­head with 36 off 12.

B Grade win­ner K Weavell with 37 off 36 and run­ner-up K All­sopp with 36 play­ing off 27 h’cap.

All re­ceived our spon­sor’s vouch­ers of $35 for the win­ners and $20 each for the run­ner­sup.

Ball run­down win­ners – P Smith 36, J Lack­ner, L Moy­lan, I Bum­bers, J Cul­hane, R Wilt­shire, G Cur­tis, E Fah and G Sawyer each with a score of 35 points.

We wish to ac­knowl­edge the gen­er­ous sup­port of the Corowa Nurs­ery and Gar­den Cen­tre and the Corowa Golf Club in pro­vid­ing vouch­ers and goods for to­day’s win­ners.

Next month’s games are Mon­day, De­cem­ber 4 at the How­long CGC and Mon­day, De­cem­ber 11 at Corowa Golf Course.
