Village Talk



What’s been going on at Umgeni Waterfall Bowlng Club (UWBC) this past week? Let’s start with the bowls played….

On Tuesday, October 18, the club held its monthly JLS Drawn 2-4-2 competitio­n. What a great day: lovely weather, busy greens and lots of great bowling.

The winners were Peter Storm and

John Withers, with Colin Burden and Craig Whitby in second. Winners of the plate event were Steve Smith and Stephanie Crause.

Well done to all players who took part, and a big thank you to sponsors, J Leslie Smith & Associates.

In addition to the normal Wednesday tabs in and social bowls, UWBC also had an impromptu Friday afternoon session of last man standing followed by a bring and braai - and just as well because Saturday’s weather saw our greens closed after almost 50mm of rain.

In other news, the club has repaired some of the thatching on the roof, cleared bushes from around the greens, started work on reorganisi­ng the snooker room, and they have poured the concrete bases for the floodlight­s.

It shouldn’t be too much longer before we can enjoy a summer evening on the greens.

Big thanks to the members who are giving their time and energy to making our clubhouse and greens look so amazing.

On Friday, the club is looking forward to a fun SG Knott Constructi­on sponsored day and next week they will be introducin­g Tuesday afternoon bowls which will be in the 2-4-2 format. Definitely something to look forward to!
