Weekly Report March 03

Again the heat has hit, and still no rain in sight, but Bowls has continued on in all formats and competitions. The Autumn weather usually provides many opportunities for pleasant bowling, so let’s hope that this happens.

Club Events 

The Final of the Mixed Pairs was held last Sunday in very warm conditions. The result was a victory to Garry and Claire Sanders over Greg Green and Laureen Smith, 21/13. Congratulations to all players.

The Ladies Pairs are scheduled for late Wednesday afternoon.(March 6th)

Barefoot Bowls 

The Final night of the series was held last Tuesday. Everyone was in fine spirits, and presentations for team nominated local charities were made to Section and Weekly winners. President Kerry and Secretary Peter again thanked YMGCR for their sponsorship. It was decided unanimously that Barefoot Bowls would continue in a Social format until Easter. Teams of 4 are invited and participants do not necessarily need to have played in the Charity series.

Region Events 

Ovens and Murray Region has announced the teams for the Regional Sides Championship. The Men’s team to be played at Traralgon on April 5 – 7 includes Peter Velardo, and the Women’s team to play at Murray Downs on March 29 – 31 includes 6 ladies from YMGCR (Anne Miles, Laureen Smith, Claire Sanders, Sue Middleton, Rhonda Irvine, and Carolyn Reilly )

Pennant Finals 

Weekend Pennant finals have been completed with our A1 team going down to arch rival Wodonga (66/109).

It’s now up to the Midweek A1 and A3 to see if they can bring home a flag for our flagpole.
