Lawn Bowls Scudds/Earl Shield
Played 20th September 2020

Our yearly event the Scudds/Earl shield took place at the Millicent Bowling Club on Sunday 20th September with Millicent playing Mt Gambier RSL.  Both clubs were very happy with the participation of the 14 teams from each club.
Play commenced at 1-00pm in overcast skies but typical Millicent weather blue skies and sunny conditions were not long in coming.  All games were fiercely contested for the 25 ends played with no break half way through the game as per a normal pennant match.
After all the score  cards were counted and all games were completed and the  points were tallied up, Mt Gambier RSL Club came out victors by 13 shots once again giving Mt Gambier RSL the overall victory and retaining the shield.
The overall winning rink for Mt Gambier RSL was the team of, D Beaman, W Brown, A Coulson and L Moyle and the winning rink  best over all from Millicent was, D Crase, D Bowering, B Burdon and R Gibbs.  Congratulations to both of these rinks.
Thanks goes out to both club presidents Peter Hyland from Millicent and Graham Crowder from Mt Gambier RSL, for their kind words and support to all players and supporters for the day.  Steve Carnellor, chairman of the pennant selectors committee, also thanked all club members from Millicent for working so hard to put the event on under difficult condition. A lovely afternoon tea was had by all from sealed food purchased, no home cooking was on the tables and safety rules were followed to the letter.
