Unfortunately this year has begun on a sad note with the unexpected passing of one of our most treasured bowlers.
Nola Jackson joined TGWBC in April 1996, she represented our club in Pennants, bowled in winning teams for Club Championship in the Triples and Fours, Runner up in the Club Pairs Competition on two occasions, assisted with the Sunday Introduction to Bowls, was a National Umpire, mentor to new bowlers,served on the Match Selection Committee and a friend to many.
To sum it up Nola was a great asset to the women’s bowling club and we will all miss her. Gone but not forgotten, forever with us on the green.
January is going to be a very busy month, beginning with a Team Training Session with Karen Murphy on the 17th.
Karen’s credentials include reigning world singles champion, holder of 7 world titles and 4 Commonwealth Games medals and selected to bowl for Australia at this year’s Commonwealth Games. We are privileged that Karen could fit the session in to her busy schedule.
Club Championship Fours Round 1 starts 18th January and Pennant Season begins 30th January.
Tuesday 9th January: A good turn up of bowlers, format for play was Fours. The winners on the day with a win plus ends were Lynda Richards, Kerry Faber, Wendy Brand and Elizabeth Kelly. Birthday greetings to Francis Betar and Caroline Bywater.
