Weekly Report January 28


Mid – Week Pennant.

The A1’s journeyed to Benalla and walked off the green having all rinks up, and more importantly all rinks winning well. Final sores saw YMGCR 73 shots and 14 points to Benalla 35 shots and 0 points. Having a field day were Ian Febey (L), Shirley Hummel (2), Rob Hummel (3), and Ray Irvine (S), who put their opponents to the sword 26 shots to Benalla’s 11 shots.
