Vic Open: This was a great week with some fan­tas­tic bowls be­ing played and great bowlers bring out the best in the rest of us.

I had the plea­sure of bowl­ing with my hubby in the mixed pairs, with no great suc­cess.

I also played in the ladies’ pairs with Kate from Warrnambool at Ky Val­ley Golf and Bowls club, again no suc­cesses, and in the ladies’ triples at Shep­par­ton Golf with Ce­cilia and Robyn on the Mon­day.

Scar­ily Robyn tried hard to pull us over the line how­ever another team in our sec­tion had a huge win in their sec­ond game.

The thought of play­ing in the knock-out rounds was a bit daunt­ing to me.

Mid­week Divi­sion 5: On Tues­day, Novem­ber 13, VT trav­elled to Col­binab­bin and had a laugh when some­one turned up to roll the green when we’d nearly fin­ished our roll-up.

It was a suc­cess­ful day for our team, win­ning 58/37 (140).

E An­der­son, I Chanter, P De­la­hey, D Tay­lor de­feated R Weeks 25/20.

L Rus­sell-Jones, M De­la­hey, K Byrne, D Un­der­wood de­feated D Chan­dler 33/17.

Last Tues­day we played at home against Avenel.

While they had one de­pleted rink over­all, we only won 52/49 (12-2).

E An­der­son, D Tay­lor, M Da­ley, L Holmes de­feated N Billingsley 32/14.

H Bi­ach, H Da­ley, P De­la­hey, L Rus­sell-Jones lost to M Da­maron 20/35.

Week­end Divi­sion 5: Our home game against Shep­par­ton RSL on Satur­day, Novem­ber 24, on a heavy green, gave us a win 77/64 (12-4), how­ever only one rink got over the line.

K Byrne, R Wither, N Grigg, D Un­der­wood lost to R Bone 17/22.

G Jones, M Howard, D Tay­lor, G Til­brook de­feated J John­stone 42/15.

K Beaton, W Wood, M De­la­hey, J Dun­can lost 18/27.

This week we trav­elled to Stan­hope where the con­di­tions were warm but en­joy­able.

Miss­ing a few play­ers this week was not good for the team as a whole, and we played short in one team. We went down 58/86(0-16). D Un­der­wood, W Wood, M De­la­hey, J Dun­can lost to B Spencer 28/21.

K Byrne, I Chanter, N Grigg lost to C Evans 33/17.

G Jones, D Tay­lor, L Rus­sell-Jones, G Til­brook lost to T Burgess 25/20.

So­cial bowls: On Fri­day af­ter­noon, from 4.30, there are gen­er­ally a few peo­ple around to have a roll with.
