YMGCR BOWLS CLUB
Wednesday Social Bowls.
Much needed rain saw Wednesday Social Bowls cancelled on the 4th of October. Not a great day for bowls but certainly a great day for canola and wheat, the welcome rain should finish off crops nicely.
Friday Social Bowls.
In a complete contrast to Wednesday’s weather Friday was sunny with a light breeze, perfect for good bowls. 48 players enjoyed the Friday pairs format of one game, 18 ends of 2 – 4 – 2 bowls. In first prize were Ron and Jill Lamson. Second prize went to the team of Jim LeFevre and Rod Jones. The first consolation prize went to Doddy and Pam Dodman. The second consolation prize of a drink card each went to Tony Durkin and Trevor Kilpatrick.

Good luck to all YMGCR bowlers, and by extension players from our neighbouring clubs who are in the Test Series. Until next week good bowling.
