Weekly Report Feb 24

An up and down week for our Pennant finals teams. The end result is that our Weekend A1 has made it through to the Grand Final. Our B2 put up a gallant effort in their Preliminary Final against Benalla, but fell short by a mere 2 shots.

Midweek teams still have matches to play, and hopefully we can still advance further with the A1 and A3 teams.

We wish all teams good bowling, and urge all members to support the remaining teams.
