ClubMul­wala Out­door Bowls

A great week of bowls this week, good weather, and plenty of ac­tion on the greens.

Tues­day saw A2 at home to Be­nalla; this was the tough­est con­test of the sea­son for our club.

We were given a les­son on all rinks which re­sulted in a re­sound­ing loss, we will need to im­prove be­fore our next meet­ing with them. B1 were at home to Wa­reena Park, where they con­tin­ued the good form with a sound win.

Satur­day found both our teams at home to Corowa Ser­vices;

B2 had a close hard tus­sle all day with scores very close at the tea break, all rinks set­tled well af­ter the break even­tu­ally scor­ing a solid win. B5 struck very tough com­pe­ti­tion, go­ing down on two rinks and win­ning the third, with

enough shots to draw the day, good team re­sult.

Fur­ther rounds of the Men’s sin­gle cham­pi­onship were played on Sun­day with some great skills to the fore.

John Thurl­ing and Mark Smith were 23 each on the last end with John draw­ing the shot to take out the match.

Cliff Mor­ton and Peter Humphreys were 24 each on the last end, Cliff held two shots with Peter draw­ing in with his last bowl to take shot, two in­cred­i­ble matches of the high­est stan­dard.

But wait there is more; the Ladies played one game of their cham­pi­onship, with Kaye Smith and Mar­garet Pretty putting on a first class dis­play.

Once again the scores were level at 23 each on the last end, Kaye even­tu­ally tak­ing the win.

What a fan­tas­tic morn­ing of bowls, of a very high stan­dard, con­grat­u­la­tion to all play­ers.

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 sec­ond half of the sea­son,

ev­ery­one can ben­e­fit from some ex­tra time on the green.

YMGCR Bowls

The Christ­mas Party set down for Tues­day, De­cem­ber 11 is look­ing like one not to be missed. There is still room for more, so come along, sup­port your club and have a great night.

The list is on the no­tice board.

Great con­tested semi-fi­nals have been seen in the last week.

The Club Cham­pi­onship fi­nals will be held on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 16, start­ing at 10am.

In the Men’s fi­nal last year’s cham­pion Gary San­ders will play against the for­mi­da­ble Ray Irvine, whilst Robyn Moore will take on last year’s cham­pion Lau­reen Smith.

Will last year’s champions go back to back or will Ray or Robyn, or both spoil their thun­der?

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to come along and wit­ness the out­come.

The Ladies B Grade fi­nal is be­tween Sue Evans and Marie White­head. It will be held on Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 6. Well done to both ladies for mak­ing it through to the fi­nal.

The Men’s 100 Up fi­nal will be con­tested be­tween Daryl Rich­mond and Ray Irvine at a date to be set.

This week Anne Miles heads to Tassie as part of the Vic­to­rian team for test matches against Tas­ma­nia, and then joins with Carolyn Reilly in Frankston for the State Over 60’s Fi­nal.

No rest for these girls, they just keep go­ing and go­ing. Good bowl­ing, girls.
