Weekly Report April 07

With our greens in “sensational condition “ and the Autumn weather so perfect, there can be very few excuses not to come bowling at YMGCR. Plenty of events are available, or just come on down with a friend and enjoy a game.

Presentation Day 

A great roll up on the greens on Sunday to congratulate our event winners for Season 2018-19. Presentations were made by Laurie Bridgeman (YMGCR Board) and Laureen Smith (Ovens and Murray Region Vice President).

State Events 

6 YMGCR girls recently represented O & M at the group sides competition in Swan Hill. At the end of the Sectional rounds O & M ended up second in Section B, narrowly missing out on the Grand Final. The rink of Anne Miles, Claire Sanders, Rhonda Irvine, and Jodie Freund(Wangaratta)were the best performed rink overall in the competition.
