An­other great week for bowls played on won­der­ful greens in great weather. Pen­nant Re­sult

All pen­nant teams were away this week. Tues­day pen­nant was played in good con­di­tions:

A2 were at home to Moira and faced some very de­ter­mined com­pe­ti­tion, how­ever were in front when it mat­tered.

B1 were also at home to Be­nalla, tough com­pe­ti­tion on two rinks but an ex­cep­tional

Per­for­mance by our side on the third rink saw us come away with a strong win. Satur­day

B2 were at home to YMGCR great bowls were played on all rinks with scores at a very in­ter­est­ing stage when the tea break was taken, our rinks seemed to set­tle quicker af­ter the break even­tu­ally fin­ish­ing with a good win.

B5 were also at home to Corowa Civic, once again scores were very in­ter­est­ing at the tea

Break, and be­came more in­ter­est­ing af­ter the break with two of our rinks forg­ing ahead and the third only scor­ing on one end af­ter the break, how­ever the team came away with the win.

A big thank you goes out to our cater­ing duo, He­len Thurl­ing and Jean Wheeler, who each

Satur­day home games make sure ev­ery­thing is in or­der for the tea break, also to Anita Al­bert, who as­sisted He­len this week, as Jean was busy on the green.
