Presentations of Bowls Victoria badges were also made to bowlers who have attained the status of OBE.

YMGCR President Gill Cunningham joined with President Kerry to present all awards to winners and runners up for each event. Competition throughout the year was fierce and quality matches were played in all events. Well done to you all.

State Events

Bowls Victoria have this week postponed all State Championship matches scheduled for July. Many of our bowlers were involved.

“ With increased cases of COVID-19 in hotspot areas, Bowls Victoria must consider player welfare and our Duty of Care for members playing in BV events.”

Disappointment for some, and relief for others.

As this is my final report for YMGCR Bowls I would like to thank Emma Prior, Moose Muir, and Les Garbutt from the Chronicle for their help whilst I was in this position.

I also thank members of the Club for their kind words of encouragement, and information for reports.


Stay healthy and good bowling.
