ClubMul­wala Out­door Bowls

Once again a quiet week with Tues­day pen­nant post­poned for the Vic Open, how­ever we

were able to run so­cial bowls on Tues­day, with Thurs­day so­cial can­celled due to in­clement

weather.

Satur­day pen­nant was a mixed bag with B1 away to Corowa Civic, where each rink put in

stel­lar per­for­mances, which re­sulted in a solid win.

B5 had a bye, what a frus­trat­ing sea­son it has been for them, how­ever spir­its are high and

results have been good.

Our pen­nant se­lec­tors will meet each Tues­day af­ter com­ple­tion of the day’s com­pe­ti­tion to

se­lect teams for the next Satur­day and Tues­day matches, team sheets will be on the no­tice

board late Tues­day af­ter­noon, please check the teams.

If you find you have been se­lected and are un­able to play con­tact John Thurl­ing (57432368) straight away to ad­vise him, so that al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments can be made.

Tues­day So­cial was played in good con­di­tions; the greens con­tinue to be of the high­est stan­dard and are a credit to Ged. Results were: Win­ners Jan Martin and Rod Mi­nato (vis­i­tor).

Run­ners up Faye Cook and Jac­qui Sey­mour. Well done to our match com­mit­tee for mak­ing the ef­fort of run­ning so­cial bowls whilst Pen­nant was post­poned.

The first and some sec­ond rounds of the Men’s sin­gle cham­pi­onship were played on Sun­day

with a good num­ber of mem­bers tak­ing to the greens, fur­ther games will be played next Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2 at 10am.

We are just hold­ing our own in pen­nant at the mo­ment, with the results show­ing prac­tice is needed to en­sure we im­prove and con­sis­tency over the sea­son half of the sea­son, ev­ery­one can ben­e­fit from some ex­tra time on the green.

Not so much a sickie, but heard one of our play­ers, went in the fet­lock at Corowa Civic but re­cov­ered enough to com­plete the game, no name, but the ini­tials are G A.
