THE JOYCE Thorn Me­mo­rial women’s pairs was played at City of Echuca on the week­end of Septem­ber 2 and 3.

With favourable weather con­di­tions, vis­i­tors from clubs far and wide came and en­joyed high-class com­pe­ti­tion and a friendly two-day tour­na­ment.

Many vis­i­tors from more southerly ar­eas use this event as the first real bowls ac­tiv­ity for their sea­son.

Five games were played and at the con­clu­sion of this, only two teams re­mained un­de­feated.

Over­all win­ners were Marj McDon­ald (Co­bram), who part­nered with Lee Beat­tie (Echuca) on Satur­day, and Jenny Warfe (Co­bram) on Sun­day.

The run­ner-up prizes went to the St Kilda and Mid­dle Park com­bi­na­tion of Pam Loos­more and Mary Adams.

The club’s week­end pen­nant teams will play their first prac­tice match on Sun­day against Co­huna Golf.

Prac­tice will be held at the club on Fri­day af­ter­noon and play­ers were re­minded to check the club no­tice board for all rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing prac­tice matches and pen­nant com­pe­ti­tion.

A pre-sea­son club din­ner will be held at the Echuca Work­ers and Ser­vices Club on Tues­day, Septem­ber 19, at 6pm.

Mem­bers and friends are en­cour­aged to sup­port this event with one of our much- val­ued spon­sors, and fur­ther de­tails are also on the club no­tice board.

The club held its open­ing day for sea­son 2017/18 on Sun­day evening.

Se­nior vice pres­i­dent Rus­sell Shawcross and lady pres­i­dent Pauline Hum­bert wel­comed a fine gath­er­ing of mem­bers and friends and wished all a suc­cess­ful and happy sea­son of bowls.

The re­spec­tive club cham­pi­ons, Leanne McInnes and Rus­sell Shawcross, were in­volved in the of­fi­cial open­ing as McInnes rolled the first kitty to a short-medium end while Shawcross de­liv­ered the first bowl to fin­ish near the kitty.

Mem­bers and guests were then treated to an im­pres­sive casse­role tea fol­lowed by sweets.

The first Fri­day bar­be­cue tea will be held on Septem­ber 29.

Sev­eral mem­bers at­tended lo­cal tour­na­ments over the week­end as Leanne McInnes com­bined with Lyn Snell to win a few games at the Joyce Thorn two-day pairs at City of Echuca Bowls Club.

On Satur­day, Ian John­son, Don Is­gro and Rus­sell Shawcross (s) com­peted in the Rochester Bowls Club two-bowl triples tour­na­ment win­ning three games, los­ing one and draw­ing the other.

At the 60 and over com­pe­ti­tion, played at the Moama Bowl­ing Club on Wed­nes­day, the day was in­ter­rupted by rain and the cards were fanned.

Kevin Hum­bert and Ian John­son were teamed with a cou­ple of Moama le­gends and were for­tu­nate to win sec­ond prize, an­other chook for the oven.
