Weekly Report March 10

Now with all the Pennant and competitions over we can enjoy our bowling in the pleasant autumn weather. The Match Committees will be offering many opportunities for everyone to come on board and join in the activities. Please refer to the Notice Board and fill in entry sheets provided.

Midweek Pennant Finals 

YMGCR was represented in 2 Grand Finals at Corowa Civic last week. Unfortunately, our A3 team ended the season as Runners Up, finishing the game only 6 shots short of the Wodonga opposition. They have had a great series, and can hold their heads high.

A1 completed their season with a wonderful win against rivals Benalla. These two teams seem to be always testing each other out, but this time YMGCR came out on top. Led by skips Anne Miles, Laureen Smith, and Ray Irvine, it was the culmination of a very good yearly of high level bowling. Well done, A1!
