On Tues­day, di­vi­sion one heads to Sey­mour and di­vi­sion three and four are at home.

Week­end pen­nant Con­grat­u­la­tions to Michael Power, Dar­rel Whit­ley, An­drew Cross and John Flan­na­gan for scor­ing eight on the 24th end.

This is pretty hard to get, but they went down by three shots on the day.

The Top­pers won by 4 shots over­all.

Di­vi­sion 1 could not make a win, go­ing down to Shep­par­ton Park 104-83.

Di­vi­sion 7 went down to Sey­mour 32-65.

Mer­rigum

Di­vi­sion four played un­der the roof at Shep­par­ton Park and could only man­age to win one rink.

At one stage just be­fore the break all four rinks were in front and all seemed well.

But, alas, this didn’t last very long.

The win­ning rink was skipped by Wayne Shep­herd who was sup­ported by Stan Cold­well, John Gil­bert and Peter Hoare.

They played Bill Chilcott and won by one shot.

Af­ter 12 ends they led by nine shots and all play­ers were on the job.

By end 21 they found them­selves be­hind by one shot.

They gained two shots on each of the next two ends and held on to win the game by the nar­row­est of mar­gins.

Good to see our su­per vet­eran, Stan Cold­well, back and play­ing well.

Gary Mott drew Bill Brown and lost by six shots.

Gary had Greg Pell, Neil Gar­diner and Chris French to help him out.

They led all the game up un­til end 16; they quickly picked up the next three ends and seemed poised for the win.

Their op­po­si­tion had other ideas and reeled off the next five ends to se­cure the win.

This rink played well and are not far off be­ing a good rink.

Joe Chant played N. Hester and lost by eight shots.

His rink in­cluded David Pet­tifer, Abby Earl and Car­men Qu­at­troc­chi.

They were all beaten by their op­po­nents even though they gained the lead early in the game and looked to be play­ing well.

The rea­son for their de­feat was quite ob­vi­ous, they dropped five shots on end 14 and a dis­as­trous seven shots on end 20 which com­pletely ru­ined any chance they had to make the score card look re­spectable.

In the fi­nal game Jim Arthur, Rob Dennis, Barry McMeeken and Graeme Hub­ble went down by 14 shots to G. Lock­wood.

Like the other rinks this rink led for the first 12 ends but could only win four more ends for the rest of the game.

It would be a great help to the club and the se­lec­tors to see every­one at pen­nant prac­tice each Thurs­day evening.

Our Tues­day pen­nant played a draw against Rush­worth on Tues­day.

Lee and Donna had good wins and Mau­reen had a loss.

This was an ex­cel­lent re­sult as we are short on ex­pe­ri­enced ladies and are pleased with the progress be­ing shown by our new bowlers.

There will be a gar­den walk and a sausage siz­zle on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4, at 12.30 pm at the home of Graeme Hub­ble at 1523 McEwen Rd, Kyabram.

Please bring a chair and a plate of af­ter­noon tea to share. If you would like to at­tend, phone Lee Chant on 5855 2245 or 0419 557 229 for cater­ing pur­poses.

Do­na­tions for the Christ­mas ham­per would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.
