Last mens day for the year.
Rink draw Winners:

S. Brian Cornish
Hope to see all the man back on the greens on the 4.01.2023 for another year of bowls, fun and friendship!
Last social competition day for the year:
It’s been a great year of bowls, lots of highs and a few lows thrown in to test us!
We’ve seen two of our Ladies, Donna Smith and Fiona Dowling do us proud on the wider bowls stage.
All our club champions attaining their best in our local competitions, singles, pairs, triples and fours!
Some of our long standing bowlers have moved away but we have some newcomers as well.
Sadly we lost one of our most respected members with the passing of Wayne Jensen.
All our thoughts go out to Trish and the Family on the loss of such a beautiful man.
Now is the time to look forward to another year of fun, friendship and some great bowls moments in the coming year.
Rink draw winners:
G. I. Jane Herd Evans
The Jackpot is still intact so $300 is up for grabs next week!
Not a great number today, a couple of headaches after New Years perhaps!
Have to say it was a great night out at the club.
