A very special Remembrance Day was celebrated today with players pausing to pay homage to all those who served and are still serving in our armed forces so that we can enjoy our freedom.
It’s worth it for your business.

The Myall Bistro Voucher was won by Andy Docherty.
Our thanks to the new proprietors of the Myall Bistro for their support.
The semi-finals of the Club Mixed Pairs competition were played today in bright sunny weather.
Both matches turned-out to be somewhat of an anti-climax in that both were decided with easy wins.
Karen and Ron Green appear to be in great form and they emphatically accounted for Maynie Roberts and Peter Gurney 18 – 7.
In the remaining game, Robyn Beaumont and Jeff Baker were far too good for Irene Roberts and Dennis Longman, winning comfortably 22 – 11.
The perfect bowling weather continued today for the final of the Club Mixed Pairs competition between Karen and Ron Green and Robyn Beaumont and Jeff Baker.
There was little difference between the leads, both setting up opportunities for their skips and for the first half of the game Karen and Ron were well in the game trailing 7-8 after nine ends.
A fortuitous conversion on the 10th by Jeff Baker saw his team come away with 4 shots to make a break.
The Greens tried valiantly to get back into the game but a similar conversion from Jeff at about the 15th end, to take 5, really put paid to their chances.
Robyn and Jeff completed the match winning 20-14 to be crowned Mixed Pairs winners for 2020.
Congratulations to all the players who took part in the competition!
