Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies -

The Vic­to­rian Gov­ern­ment is giv­ing clubs, sport­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions and coun­cils an un­prece­dented boost to fund mod­ern, in­clu­sive and safe grass­roots sports fa­cil­i­ties, grounds and multi-sport in­door sta­di­ums.

Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria, Mark Gepp MP an­nounced ap­pli­ca­tions to a range of com­mu­nity grant pro­grams are now open.

The Com­mu­nity Sports In­fra­struc­ture Fund re­ceived a huge $60 mil­lion boost that will pro­vide high qual­ity, ac­ces­si­ble com­mu­nity sport and ac­tive recre­ation in­fra­struc­ture across Vic­to­ria.

ClubMul­wala Out­door Bowls

Great news this week with Cliff Mor­ton through his op­er­a­tion and rest­ing at home, also good to see Dodi around the club again.

On the bowls front Tues­day So­cial was well sup­ported in fine weather and sun­shine, some very com­pet­i­tive and close matches played with 3 x 2 game win­ners and the re­sult de­cided on a count­back, win­ners on the day were Barry Pitt and John Thurl­ing, run­ners up Greg Fisher and Rhonda Liv­ing­stone.

Sat­ur­day once again saw the bowlers from VRI ar­rive, I think this is at least their 10th an­nual visit to our club, they are great fun to have around, the weather on the day was to say the least mis­er­able, two teams of fours from both VRI and our club braved the weather, the win­ners on the day were club mem­bers Peter Humphreys, Ge­off Cas­son, Gra­ham Al­bert, and Anita Al­bert.

Re­mem­ber so­cial bowls are on each Tues­day and Sun­day, weather per­mit­ting, vis­i­tors are very welcome, it would also be good to see more mem­bers join­ing in.

Mem­ber­ship: Mem­ber­ship re­newal is now due with let­ters sent to all ex­ist­ing mem­bers, if you are new in town and want to join a great club we would love to have you join us, ex­pe­ri­enced and new bowlers are most welcome.

Yar­ra­wonga Bowls

Re­sults for the past week were:

Mon­day, July 2: Win­ners – D El­lis and J El­lis. Run­ners Up – P Humphries and D Dighton. The Jack­pot was not claimed and will be car­ried for­ward to next Mon­day.

Wed­nes­day, July 4: Win­ners – B Lid­dell, N Borg and R Phillips. Run­ners Up – K Grib­ble, B Quinn and P Gib­bons. The Jack­pot was not claimed and will be car­ried for­ward to next Wed­nes­day.

Sat­ur­day Bowls was can­celled due to low num­bers and bad weather.

We have been very lucky so far this win­ter get­ting most of our games in.

It is nice to see us get­ting some rain at last though.

Next week’s games are – Sat­ur­day So­cial, Mon­day 2-4-2 and Wed­nes­day Jack­pot triples.

All these games start at 12.30pm and names need to be down by 11am on the day.

To all, good health, good bowling and good fellowship.
