Weekly Report May 05

We have now reached the time of year, when following the AGM, our new committees start planning for the next season of bowls, the weather conditions change dramatically, and game of bowls is the activity we look forward to each week. At YMGCR from May 8th till the end of August, all Social events will be played as Open events.

Iron Jack Invitation Mixed Pairs

An overwhelming successful tournament, with 42 teams representing 37 different clubs from near and far, participating in last week’s event. With the greens at their “unbelievable” best, Greenkeeper Warrick Henderson set the standard for the rest of the weekend. The food provided by YMGCR Catering was very well received.

The pattern continued on Thursday evening at the very Social Open Draw. Organisers came up with a very novel way to conduct the draw, where players had to show their skill with putting to receive their team number and their program for the tournament.

The Pop-Up shop provided by Shepparton Bowls Shop proved to be a winner, and complimented the tournament for locals and visitors. The team from SBS expressed their delight in our facilities and the organisation of their visit.

Thanks to Umpire Gary Fear from St James, and local helpers Carolyn Boston, Bob Liddell, and Ben Knowles for their work.

The Committee wish to thank the following local raffle prize donors:

Showcase Jewellers, Pharmasave Chemists, IGA Supermarket, Nagles Butchery, and Uncle Toby’s.

Everyone is looking forward to this event next year.
