Finally, a week when Bowls can be played without the heat rule being enforced. With the Pennant season second round of matches nearing completion, the finals are looming.
96 bowlers competed in Week 1 of the Barefoot Bowls Night Competition on Tuesday, January 29th.
Winning teams were … Kangas, Thales, Bee Bees, Hopefuls, Jimmys, Fallons, Yarra SES, Rotary, Garden Lovers, Purtles, Wunnini Wankers, and a draw between 2 Plus 2 and FWW. A good time was had by all, so come along any Tuesday evening and watch some entertaining and skilled bowling from these budding new bowlers.
Club Events are continuing to be played at convenient times for players involved. All are progressing well, so keep your eye on the notice board for finals dates.
Unfortunately, none of our pairings made it through to next level in the State Mixed Pairs Championship, but Les Spencer and Peter Velardo are still in the running in the Men’s Pairs.
