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.
