Weekly Report September 08

Season Opening

If medals were being given out for bravery at YMGCR, there were 64 bowlers who deserved one last Sunday. Braving the bitterly cold and windy conditions everyone turned up to play, and the good day was certainly not marred by the weather. The new uniforms looked so professional and smart, and all participants enjoyed the great social atmosphere that prevailed. Bowlers, visitors, and guests also enjoyed the magnificent meal provided by the Club. Raffle winners were Marie Morffew, Carolyn Reilly, Les Balfour, Bob Evans, Don Tipping, and John Mc Gough. Match Committee’s Danny Mc Neill chaired the day, Vice President Marcia Mc Grillen welcomed everyone to the event, and  YMGCR Board was represented by Don Presley.

Names on Pennant Shirts

The Uniform Committee has decided to leave it to individual bowlers to arrange to have names printed on shirts. Please make sure that the embroidering is done with navy blue thread, and that the letters are in upper case. This is to be added above the pocket on men’s shirts, and just above the “Y” on ladies shirts.
