Around the Greens

August 09, 2017


Last Wednesday’s pairs had 24 bowlers taking on the 16 second green with three teams winning both their games.
The winning pair of Darryl Richmond and Billy Butterworth with 22 shots up were far too good for their opponents.
Peter Velardo and Greg Fisher were runners up with 21 shots up, the jackpot failed to go off. Unfortunately Friday and Sunday bowls was a wash out. So if you are interested in a game on Sunday put your name down on the sheet.  Games start at 1.00pm and with a random draw for partners. Don’t forget that the opening of the bowls season will be Saturday, 27 August.
There will be a list on the notice board for people who what to play and also a list for people who want to have afternoon tea. The green will be opened by the new vice president of the O&M committee, Laureen Smith at 1pm.

Club Mulwala Outdoor Bowls

What a great start to the week for bowls, the weather was very mild and encouraged a large number of bowlers out of hibernation.
The fine weather did fade towards the end of the week but no doubt the farmers would appreciate the rain.
Tuesday Social was well supported once again, with a large number of members and six visitors joining in.
Winners on the day were John Thurling, Ron Langdon and Jean Wheeler, runners up were Jan Corboy, Val Kennedy, Greg Fisher and Paul Talbot.
The Jackpot was won by Loris Lochhead, Malcolm Miller and visitor Ron Boehm.
Sunday Social was called off due to what can only be described as extreme weather conditions.
Remember: Social Bowls for the winter:
Midweek 12.30 on Tuesday ( names in by 11am on the day).
Sunday 12.30 (names in by 11am on the day).
Social bowls provides an opportunity for members and visitors to come along and enjoy the hospitality of this great club whilst sharpening their skills for the coming penant season.
The club is extremely pleased with the on going growth in the membership and the support of ClubMulwala management  The pennant committee is well advanced in preparing for the coming season and the new match committee has hit the ground full of run in preparing the sylibus for the season.
Opening Day: The Club’s opening day for the season will be on August 27 at 1pm, beginning with some fun bowls followed with afternoon tea, the list is now up on the board.
