Weekly Report Feb 17

Finals Fever has arrived at YMGCR. Fielding 5 teams in the finals series, and achieving an amazing 50%of teams competing at this end of the season, is no mean feat. It gives all us non finals playing bowlers the opportunity to get behind our teams, and cheer them on at their various venues. The teams would really appreciate your support. Venues will be found on the team selection boards, so get a car load together and come on down. Go Border!!!
