YMGCR BOWLS CLUB
Midweek Pennant had YMGCR play Wodonga in the A1 Grand Final played at Corowa Civic green and in a tough and tight game Wodonga came out on top winning 64/54. The fab four of Miles, Velardo, Moore and Rempel once again winning 26/20. This completed a very rare occurrence where the same rink has gone through the whole season undefeated. They were in a tight battle all day only to pick up a 5 on the last end to seal their victory. “GG” green was always in the contest and came out with a 18/18 draw. Smithy’s rink never got going but showed a lot of ticker to fight it to the end going down 10/26. To go through the season undefeated only to lose the GF is a bitter pill to swallow and this will be our driving force to go one better next year.
Thanks to all our teammates who came along and gave us lots of encouragement and to Les for driving the bus and team manager Judy. Also I would like to congratulate Annie for all the time and effort she put in on the Monday afternoon training sessions and to all the players who turned up.
Wednesday Social Bowls had 30 plays play 2 bowl triples and the winners with 2 wins and +21 were Pinkie Lidgerwood, “Nifty” Neville Colemen and a visitor D. Pohlner. Runners up with 2 wins and +19 were Chris Gentle, Rob Hummel and Frank Liberg (great to see Rob back on the green after a long layoff due to ill health and I hope he can master his new stick and get back into pennant next year).
On Tuesday we had our last night of barefoot bowls and the winners were Garden Lovers, Murray “D” and Black Bull who all won $200 for their favorite charity. The runners up were Bruisers, Haacks and the Jimmies who donated $150 to their charities and best game winners were MWA, Rotary and Insiders who all won $50.
The Bowls club would like to thank the Golf Club for their fantastic support and sponsorship and we hope all the players enjoyed themselves for this worthy cause.
