MEN: ANOTHER one of our Veteran bowlers has just had his 90th birthday and thus it was that, Terry  and  family sponsored a bowls game on Sunday for Dad, Bill Ledger, with a tasty barbecue to follow.

Those who took part had a great afternoon of fun and fellowship with Bill and Elvie, and their family.

Elvie never got the “bowls bug”but both are staunch supporters of our club.

FRIDAY Social: One close game and two rather decisive victories on this occasion.

The game A Hutchinson and K Breasley versus  W Watmore and D Bateup  see-sawed all the way with later pair finishing one shot in front (18-17).

C Miller and R Johnson grabbed a “four“ on last end against G Bushell and R Cleveland  to finish with a 11 shot margin but that was not enough to win the vouchers as  E Jarrott and P Rasmussen knotched up a 12 shot margin against G Hagan and J Malone.
