Mer­rigum bowls:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — Young Joe

The an­nual gen­eral meet­ing was held last Thurs­day at the club rooms and the club has a new chair­per­son and two new di­rec­tors.

We wel­come Peter Hoare and Sally Ho­ran to the board and hope they en­joy the jour­ney.

Joe Chant was elected the new chair­per­son to re­place John Firmer, who is hav­ing a break from bowls.

The new deputy chair­per­son is Rob Den­nis, who also takes on the roles of green di­rec­tor and match com­mit­tee chair­per­son.

Mau­reen Shep­herd has agreed to an­other term as sec­re­tary and we are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the trea­surer’s po­si­tion, as Pat Hub­ble has moved to Shep­par­ton. We hope to be able to make an an­nounce­ment on her re­place­ment in the next two weeks.

Joe Chant will also have the role as bar man­ager and pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer.

We have ex­panded and com­bined our se­lec­tion com­mit­tees into the one group. The se­lec­tors will be Wayne Shep­herd, Lee Chant, David Pet­tifer, Barry McMeeken and Peter Hoare.

Lee Chant will also look after the Tues­day pen­nant.

John Bai­ley will deal with the 60 and overs and also lead the grounds staff.

A big thanks was ex­tended to John Firmer, Pat Hub­ble and Ali­son Batt for the hard work and time given to the club.

Their ef­forts were greatly ap­pre­ci­ated by all the club mem­bers.

Sally Ho­ran will re­place Ali­son Batt in charge of cater­ing.

We are pleased with the re­sponse to the an­nual meet­ing and look for­ward to the new sea­son.

The next pokie trip will be to the Mul­wala Ski Club on Sun­day, July 29. The bus leaves Kyabram at 9 am and Mer­rigum at 9.15 am.

The cost is still only $5 for the trip, morn­ing tea and a two-course lunch. Betty and Meryl will have the in­for­ma­tion this week and we would love to see some new faces on the bus. Any queries to Joe Chant, phone 0428 552 466.
