It was a bit windy tonight which was a bit challenging. Players certainly are experiencing a variety of playing conditions each week. Thanks to the kitchen staff they are getting some good variety and quality food served up to keep them satisfied. We are extremely thankful for some of our night owls members stepping and volunteering to play for our Saturday Pennant side to help them out. This will be a new experience for them and we look forward to next week to see how they got on. Jack Attack (Ian Kuchel, Ross Warren, John Madden, Frank Cooper) managed to score a magnificent 8 tonight. We also welcomed Tristan Thorneycroft as a first time player tonight.

What a beautiful Wednesday night for bowls, the best so far with the wind the main thing the bowlers had to contend with. Maybe one evening there will be no wind and the bowlers will be very surprised and will be at a loss of how to handle the greens. It is nice to see some good shots being bowled. We welcome back some bowlers who have been on the sick list and some who still are but giving it a go and surrounded by their bowls’ mates. We all need this at times.

It was great to start the season off with good weather, full greens and lots of smiling faces not forgetting some delicious food and drinks and lots of raffle winners.
We certainly are looking forward to playing each week as the competition is expected to be very competitive as the sides are graded by colours white being the tryers who get better each week as they get more practice before they move on to the blue team who then try to get to the top of the ladder so that the can progress to the Red team who try real hard to stay there because the two bottom teams in Red and Blue Division go down and the two top teams in White and Blue progress up. So you can see there is lots of trying and banter each week as players do their best to win realising that there has to be just as many runner ups as winners.
