Club Mulwala Indoor Bowls

A great day of bowling was had by all on Saturday April 6 when a bus load of 20 bowlers from Moama RSL came for a friendly day of bowling which resulted in Mulwala coming out the stronger, 159 to 141 pts.

Results for Monday, April 8.

Winners with 34 pts were Jeanette Davies – Pat Crothers – Betty Blick.

Runner Up with 27 pts were Barb Eberle – Gwen Owen – Chris Liberg.

Encouragement Award with 7 pts were Ellen Buckley – Sue Stillard – Wilf Owen – Ron Bruce

Pennant Results for Thursday, April 11.

Mulwala Blue 19 pts defeated Mulwala Red 12 pts.

Mulwala Gold 20 pts lost to Wodonga Green 32 pts.

Mulwala Green 31 pts lost to Corowa Blue 34 pts.

In this game Mulwala Green won all 8 pts on one of their ends.

We were sorry to learn earlier in the week of the death of our oldest bowler, Keith Green. He gave us many a laugh with his jokes and quick wit.

YMGCR Bowls

It has been a very busy week at YMGCR this week, and everyone has thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play YMGCR’s game with bowlers from different areas.

Firstly, YMGCR shared Tuesday with friends from Belmont, Geelong. 

This is always a special day on the calendar and is a chance to catch up with familiar faces who visit the area.

Secondly it was our turn and we hosted the regular weekly event, the Men’s Triples, where bowlers can compete with others from around the area. 

This event is very competitive and the range of local sponsorship each month is very much appreciated.

Finally, as we draw near to Anzac week, some members of YMGCR who belong to the Yarrawonga Mulwala Branch of the RSL have been participating in the Edinburgh Shield. 

This event is played widely throughout Australia and encourages mateship and fun, and a chance to share experiences with other RSL members. 

The team playing in Yarrawonga Mulwala were runners up to Altona in their sectional play over the weekend and the second team who travelled to Barham won through their sectional event and will now be in contention to be named as state winners. 

LEST WE FORGET.
