Tuesday Social was again postponed to enable another club event to be run A large number of members turned out for our two bowl singles event, after some very strong competition the winner on the day was Pam Dodman with runner up Daryl Dighton.
Saturday was a full on pennant practice which definitley brought out the best in most bowlers, play commenced at 10.00am and was played in quite warm conditions, finishing at about 12.30pm when we all enjoyed a well earned lunch and refreshments. A pity the normal Saturday competition can not start at the earlier time, however the powers to be at Ovens and Murray will not even have a proper discussion on the matter.
Practice is now up and running each Thursday from 3.30 onwards, for those members who work practice will still be going well after 5.00 so don’t miss out.
There will be a coach available to answer any questions or assist all in improving their skills.
Friday the 13th October will see our club participate in the state wide “Come & Try Mw” day, activities will commence at 4.30pm and finish when the last bowler leaves, a sausage sizzle will also be available.
If you are curious of how bowls is played and would like to have a go come along and join in, there will be experienced bowlers available to assist you and provide feedback on all aspects of the game, bowls will be provided.
This is a cost free day, (apart from drinks which will be available for purchase) please come along and join in, a great day for persons of any age.
The days and time for social games are likely to change the club events begin, make sure you check the notice board regularly.
On Tuesday the first and second rounds of the ladies singles were held. In the first round two of the favourites went head to head, with Anne Miles defeating Claire Sanders.
Next week Anne will be playing old chum in Caroline Reilly, and Lauren Smith playing the smiling assassin Celia Milne, good luck ladies.

On Saturday 55 players headed off to Rutherglen for the second practice game. After a great BBQ it was an enjoyable game with some of the club’s new recruits putting in some good performances.
Sunday saw the quarter finals of the men’s singles, with Garry Sanders having a great game against Ray Irvine to win by 5, Les Spencer getting the better of Daryl Richmond and Andy LeFevre beating Danny McNeill. But the game of the day was between Bob Fiddes and John LeFevre, with both bowlers playing some fantastic bowls in wet and windy conditions. With the scores level on 24 shots each, Bob put his first close and with John just missing with his last three bowls, Bob got the hard fort win. Due to wet conditions the Semi final between Garry and Andy will be played on Friday morning, the other game between Bob and Les will be played on Sunday morning.
