Medowie Social Inaugural Bowls Gala

 

SUNSHINE, breeze, bowlers and a BBQ were the perfect ingredients for our inaugural Medowie Social Bowls Gala.

We had a fantastic turnout with 24 bowlers coming from as close as Tea Gardens while others from Mornington Peninsula in Victoria came to enjoy a day of fun and a little competition.

We had two very close games on the day with the first being Bev and Warwick Lowe scraping home against Joanne and David Boucher 15/14 and our second between Adam Clements and Gary Higgs nudging out Jason Price and John Hall 15/14 after an extra end to determine the winner.

I can’t write this report without mentioning one of our funny moments throughout the day, with two of our players pausing for the “smooch” on the change over.

I think this might have been a tactic to put the opponents off but sadly it wasn’t effective and they lost by just one shot.

As we all know it wouldn’t be a game of bowls if we didn’t have “the wrong bias” bowled.

I promised not to mention names; this time; but the gold coin donation was very quickly handed over.

Our prize winners on the day were A. Clements and G. Higgs for the winning rink and M and J Ware for the runners-up rink.

Our “play of the day” winner was J. Taylor from Maitland City Bowling Club for his amazing bowling skills displayed throughout the game.

Thank you to Charlie Way for the generous donation of prizes.

I must also thank every bowler who came to enjoy a great day of bowls and for their sportsmanship throughout the game.

We must also give a big thank you to John Bilby for his tireless efforts with the preparation of the green for the day and also his bbq skills when it came to feeding our bowlers after the game.

We are very excited to announce that our Social Gala Day will be held on the last Sunday of every month commencing June 27.

You can join us by simply phoning the office on 49818 474 or email your details to [email protected].

We are very much looking forward to seeing you all there.

Unfortunately we have limited numbers so be sure to get your names in.
