Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -


The mid­week Sec­tion Four pen­nant side re­mains on top of the lad­der af­ter a 77-shot vic­tory against Mooroopna Golf.

The Sec­tion Seven team is also in first place af­ter reg­is­ter­ing a nine-shot win against Stan­hope, thanks to a 19-shot vic­tory by John Den­nis, Colin Miller, Keith Mil­lar and Bardy McLeod.

The Sec­tion One side trav­elled to Tatura and af­ter a com­pet­i­tive first half the Hill Top team dom­i­nated fol­low­ing the break, win­ning by 46 shots.

An­gel Man­nakin, Fiona Smith, Rob Smith and Des Fothergill were the best­per­formed rink, los­ing by two shots.

A re­minder to mem­bers that the Christ­mas func­tion is on De­cem­ber 15 and to have raf­fle tick­ets sold and re­turned as soon as pos­si­ble.

The weeks are pass­ing and the fes­tive sea­son is draw­ing ever closer, but we are still strug­gling for con­sis­tency on the green.

Last week there were wins in the week­end pen­nant but the same can­not be said for the mid­week com­pe­ti­tion.

In ev­ery match there were some re­ally tightly fought com­pe­ti­tions, with the dif­fer­ence be­ing that end where one team man­ages to score more than two shots, some­times as many as five or six.

The club cham­pi­onship games are be­ing played with some low-scor­ing ends mak­ing for long matches. Con­grat­u­la­tions to those ad­vanc­ing to the next round.

There is a list up for the men’s pairs com­pe­ti­tion for those in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing.

Thurs­day night’s mystery tea was well sup­ported.

Thanks to Maria and Jenny for the great meal.

Speak­ing of food, the club’s Christ­mas Party is sched­uled for De­cem­ber 16 — the for­mat be­ing chicken run bowls at 10 am fol­lowed by the meal at 1 pm.

The club will pro­vide the meat and mem­bers are asked to bring along ei­ther a salad or a sweet.


There is a list on the no­tice­board for at­ten­dees’ names. Please help by putting your name on this list if you in­tend to at­tend.

Raf­fle tick­ets and money are to be re­turned be­fore or on this day.

Any mem­ber who can help by pro­vid­ing a salad or sweet for cater­ing on De­cem­ber 9 is asked to please in­di­cate on the white­board in­side the kitchen.

Birthday greet­ings are ex­tended to Brett with be­lated greet­ings to Pam, Graham, Ken K and Ruth K.

Get well wishes go out to Graham and Barbara P.
