Winning the day were the famous Beagle Boys . Gary Melleuish & John Slingsby with 3 wins + 24 margin . Good to see John was able to guide Gary back from the dark side after his traumatic experience with Trevor McGuire.
2nd place with 3 wins + 19 margin were Brett Gilligan & Phil Carrett .

The first official pennant trial is set down for Friday 4th January 2019 starting at 12.30pm . Please tick your availability on the sheet provided . As we will only have 2 grades this year these trials are very important in sorting out our squads for Grades 3 & 5. Here’s hoping we get as many players as possible for this and future trials .

8 teams contested the 3 games of 6 ends format including 2 visitors from the
Ex Servo’s club , Gary Thurston & Peter Smith. winners on the day were Craig McGale & Graham Faull being the only team to win all 3 games.
LATEST UPDATE ….. After 1 draw & 2 losses the dream / nightmare team of Gary , Barry , Larry Melleuish & Trevor ( Maestro ) McGuire didn’t quite handle the pressure , they have decided to swap positions and give it 1 more go. Not a good sign was the sad sight of Trevor leaving early after play and leaving Gary alone at the table looking quite shaken.

All of our social bowls events are open to all bowlers of all levels; beginners, experienced, men, women, juniors. Visitors are always welcome.
Social bowls are played in mufti (casual clothing, club rules apply) but we ask that suitable footwear to be worn.
We play all Club Championships at our Club including State Singles and Pairs, Triples, Fours.
All minor championships and mixed championships.
New bowlers are always welcome. We will teach anyone. We have 6 male and 1 female accredited coaches. It is best to speak to a coach about learning to play and learning the correct way rather than learning from a friend (who may teach you bad habits.)

Mixed Pairs are played in September and October midweek.
