No play was pos­si­ble in Keith’s Fri­day last Fri­day due to rain, how­ever bowlers did have pleas­ant weather the fol­low­ing day for the club’s open­ing day. In a draw for part­ners events, two games of eight ends were played and the win­ners were Ray Emer­son and Ron Dean with two wins and 17 shots up from the un­lucky Ge­off Brent­nall and Bill Avery with +16. The other two-game win­ners were a dis­tant last with +1 and that was Ge­off Back­house and Archie El­lis. Best sec­ond game win­ners were Graeme Hickey and Mary Hoog with +7. Now that the sea­son is of­fi­cially open, it is time to check some dates off as Septem­ber is a very busy month with prac­tice matches and train­ing, not to for­get trade days and the Share the Wealth event on Tues­day. Bowlers are urged to get their names down, es­pe­cially for the club prac­tice matches so the se­lec­tors can choose grades. Names in now as­sists ev­ery­body in the se­lec­tion of teams and the first prac­tice match is on Sun­day against Corowa at Ba­rooga at 10 am. Club books and as­so­ci­a­tion books, along with mem­ber­ship cards, will be avail­able this week at the var­i­ous events, so that is an­other rea­son to go along and be seen at the club. Sheets are on the board for record­ing any days you will not be avail­able for pen­nant. If you know you will not be avail­able on a par­tic­u­lar day, record your name on the sheets pro­vided for both Satur­day pen­nant and Fri­day pen­nant. Trade days for both women and men start this week and the women’s 100-up en­tries close on Fri­day. There is a spe­cial women’s bare­foot bowls night set down for Mon­day, Septem­ber 10, so en­tries for this event are sought. See Ray Koch for de­tails.
