Edinburgh Shield

Firstly we would like to thank the club president I Summers and D King for doing the opening ceremony at ClubMulwala and at the Golf Club Resort.
Saturday started off dismally for last years winners Yarrawonga Mulwala Sub Branch by losing the first game but things improved by Yarra Mul by winning their next two games.
The weather was terrific and a lot of players from the Melbourne clubs commented on the good greens, the hospitality of the club and the refreshments during the day.
A special thanks goes to the greenkeepers at both venues.
Thanks Jed and Warick, to all the people who helped with the drinks.
John and David and Cliff, thank you to Fred who helped with the cards and to Yarrawonga Mulwala players thank you for participating in this years defence for the shield.
Thanks to Roger for looking after the teams at the Golf Club for there are 96 bowlers at each club and they are all very competitive.
Day two
Beautiful weather again with the greens running very well and after two games in the morning to get the winner, Phillip Island Blue won the day with nine points and 95 shots up.
Runners up were Bundoora with 6 points and 47 shots up.
Third was Yarrawonga Mulwala with 6 points plus 1 shot.
Once again I would like to thank the staff at ClubMulwala for their hospitality and to both green keepers again for the excellent condition of the greens.
Bad luck to our bowlers as we could not win back to back but a good effort by all.
