YMGCR Bowls

Wednesday Social bowls have 20 players, and the winners were Ian Morffew and a visitor W Kiley with a +15 score.

Runners up with a +11 was Garry Hart and Lyn McGough. Jackpot was won by Doddy Dodman and Marie Morffew and the lucky number was won by Tony Durkin.

What a day was had for Friday Social Bowls, 56 players, YES 56.

In a great atmosphere the winning combinatio­n which was drawn out was Don Ellis and Sammy Smith, second prize went to Danny McNeill and M Dixon and third prize went to Ian and Marie Morffew (the Morffew’s had a big week getting plenty of prize money).

The girls have put a lot of effort to get this day off the ground and it seems to be getting plenty of support from YMGCR club mates and Yarrawonga mates.

Next week games are up in the air so keep an eye out for all changing Covid situation’s and if possible we will try and get a game.

Well, it’s nice to be out of lockdown once again, although with restrictio­ns.

Lets hope things stay positive and the sport can still be played as well as being able to have social outings.

On a sad note; Sincere Condolence­s go out to Ray Butler and family on the loss of their wife and mother Heather, after a long illness. Our thoughts are with you Ray.

On a happier note; Congratula­tions to 2 long term members, Joan and Max Ramsdale on 71 years of marriage, what an amazing achievemen­t!
