( 1st prize lucky rink draw )

I had the pleasure to play alongside young Mitchell ( 17 years old ) . Playing only his 6th ever social game of bowls , he has a very good smooth delivery and a good feel for the grass and weight . i hope he continues to enjoy and improve his game over time. Thanks to Ken France for introducing his grandson to the game and our club .

Annette Barry , Thelma Cooley Arthur Hanneman & Peter Johnson .

a good game played today with Peters team falling behind early 17 to 3 after 8 ends and 24 to 10 after 15 ends . They then rallied with some nice bowls to win the last 6 ends to finish 4 behind . Well played to Rick and team with the early pressure they applied getting them home in the end . Peter was last heard to say as he left the green ” i never should of used my new Parramatta bowls they just didn’t handle being in a final ” .
