Weekly Report November 24

Victorian Open

What an exciting week for YMGCR! Our bowlers shone in so many events, and all can be very proud of their efforts. In the Ladies Pairs our club outshone all comers with three of the four grand finalists being from YMGCR. The winning team of Anne Miles and Claire Sanders are now wearing gold medals around their necks, and Laureen Smith has a silver medal as half of the runners up team. Claire Sanders was also runner up in the Ladies Singles and has a silver medal to compliment her gold. WELL DONE GIRLS.
