Duncan has run the scroungers for two years now and the Saturday morning game has become very popular for new bowlers and experienced bowlers wanting to keep up draw bowling skills.

After the Christmas activities we will probably continue playing, but Linda will advise players on that schedule. It was an interesting night last Tuesday after our big weekend with Renate and Gillian winning with 55 per cent and a three-way tie for second place with 50 per cent. This included Narelle and Neil, Chris and Di and Linda and Dewi. It was an amazingly close game with the winners one hand in front of the three pairs and Eric and Dale only one game less than them
