Saturday Pennant Practice Match.
A strong turnout of YMGCR bowlers participated in what is now something of a traditional pre – season hit out against Cobram Bowling Club. This year’s match was held at Cobram where the greens were true on both hands and free running. Tight heads were the order of the day across most rinks and both YMGCR and Cobram players sent down some terrific bowls. Cobram Bowling Club are to be thanked for the presentation of the greens and their pre and post – game hospitality. If the laughter and noise level in the clubhouse after the game was any indication a great day was held by all who participated. Until next week, good bowling.
