The day was sponsored by Gary Melrose, a great supporter of our club.

Life Member, Daryl Martin, filled in for Gary who is currently sailing the blue oceans of the world, and presented the winning team of;
Vic Garlick, Col Fossey, Nevill Vaughan and Bill Heylbut with their prize.

With the grass green out for renovation work and numbers looking so good for next week, teams of four will replace the usual nominated triples.

This is not a bad thing as this gives everyone a chance to form your teams for the Fours Championship early January and the Pennant season next year.

Another well attended Friday Open Pairs day with 22 players competing in great spring conditions..

With bragging rights up for grabs the competition was intense.

It is always great to see the very popular Frank Zumbo back at Tea Gardens and his game has moved up a notch since his departure for Sydney where he now plays with the Randwick BC.

He joined with partner, John Slater, to boast their winning performance with +33.

They scraped in over Gary Wynne and Mark Hair on +32 and the Triples game winners, Dave Ransome, Lon Richards and Col Saillard.

25 November

The Annual Dolphin Day was held today with a full complement of representatives from both the Women’s and Men’s Bowling Clubs.

The day started with the solemn raising and lowering of the flag to commemorate the passing of friends and colleagues over the years.

The competition that followed was a tough struggle with the men defending their, as yet untarnished , winning record and the ladies determined to win, by fair means or foul, to get their name on the trophy.

In the final analysis, the men won 3 matches; the ladies 2 and 1 match was drawn.

The Master Board score; Ladies 92, Men 107.

A great day was rounded off with a barbeque lunch and welcome refreshments.

29 November

Wednesday is certainly the most popular day of the week for bowlers.

There were 50 starters today enjoying the warm weather.

The teams playing must have been well matched as only one team achieved a 2 game win.

It was the well-established firm of; Lance Atkins, Pip Sullivan and Greg Pearson who took out the money…again! .

Lance, Pip, and Greg have built a good winning combination to be consistent week in week out.
