Lottie Wright and Shane Woolford were the lucky rink winners after defeating Bruce Paine and Marj Flesser. Others to win, but not in the money were Dot Gardiner and Nola Gartner who defeated Judy Seamer and Maureen Bertoli.

16 Nov – Golfer/Bowler Day:

This annual event was well supported by both golfers and bowlers. The golf was an ambrose over 6 holes which was won by A Hauser, J Maddocks (golfing ladies), T Campbell and J Busch (bowlers) with 60 and three quarters followed closely by A Slater, D Jansen, L Wright, C Timewell with 61 and one eighth. Close on their heels were M Griscti, H Henry, M Hosie and B Stone who had the same score of 66 as H Charles, J Maynard, P Sullivan and L McGowran. D Copeland, T Rowe, M Bertoli and M Flesser had 69 followed by C Killion, M Byron, J Lofts and N Gartner with 69 and three quarters. Some joy for Chris Killion as she was a raffle winner.

After a yummy morning tea the ladies played 10 ends of bowls. It is hoped that the golfing ladies enjoyed the experience and will one day take up this challenging sport and vice versa. The winners were decided on a secret score which was luckily won by D Copeland, T Rowe, M Bertoli and B Sprengel. The latter also won a raffle.

*** The monies collected from the raffles will be forwarded to the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. The day wound up with a birthday cake and champagne to celebrate Lyn McGowran’s ‘big day’ on the 20th; happy birthday Lyn – hope you had a day to remember.
