Club Mulwala Outdoor Bowls

It has been a good week for bowls with the weather cold but dry, the cold certainly sorts out the keen bowler from the fair weather bowler.

Tuesday Social was again well supported with the winners on the day Pam Dodman and Cliff Morton, runners up were Albert (Dodi) Dodman and Jan Morton.The Jackpot did not go off.

Remember: Social Bowls for the winter, Midweek 12.30pm on Tuesday (names in by 11am on the day)

Sunday : the club is changing the Sunday format to enable single entry bowlers to join in, the previous 2-4-2 format was believed to be too restrictive in that it required an even number of pairs to enter. The club will now structure the competition on the day to suit the entries received, names in by 11am on the day please.

If you are interested in joining a great bowls club where you will be welcomed to a very happy and friendly enviroment check out the special offer for new members - no membership fee for the first year, plus a $25 club voucher towards your club shirt plus much more, full details are listed on the notice board adjacent to the storage lockers near #1 green, or give President Dodi a call to discuss, (0418994419).
