The highlight of the night was the acknowledgement of the wonderful achievement of the Women’s Club in winning the Grade 3 NSW State title.

For a Club of our size, this was no mean feat.

All the winners of the various Club Championships held during the past year were acknowledged and players presented with their commemorative shirts.

Club Champion, Anthony Grant, was presented with the Noel Colver Trophy by Sandra Hagen and Paul Colver, son, and daughter of the late Noel Colver, a champion bowler at our Club.

Another highlight was the announcement of the coveted “Clubman of the Year” award determined by the Club President to the member who has made a significant contribution to the Club during the year.

Tony Butler has put in many hours in raising money to replace the ageing shade cloth screens quite apart from physically performing this task with other members

It has been a mammoth job and will be of great benefit for all our members.

Congratulations Tony, well deserved.
