Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club

Having fun at the Biggest Morning Tea Fundraiser.


TUESDAY 4 May: Social bowls played a game of Triples and 4 games of Pairs.

Francis Betar played “swinger” second in the Triples match.

Dawn May, Francis and Lynda Richards started strongly by the 10th end they held a 10 shot lead against Lynne Green, Francis and Dawn Jones they ended up winning by 13 shots 19 v 6.

Pam Gilchrist and Judy McGavock were evenly matched against their opponents Irene Roberts and Bette Saillard.

On the 7th end Irene and Bette held a 5 shot lead but by the 10th end Pam and Judy had reversed this situation, neck to neck for the next 8 ends.

Final score 23 v 21, the winners Pam and Judy.

Deyonne Page and Jill McBride led all the way defeating Robyn Webster and Lyn Nightingale 17 v 12.

Christine Fossey and Ingrid Luck might have had Sheril Johnson and Judi Polak worried, leading 5 to nil on the 4th end or perhaps Sheril and Judi were just slow starters.

This contest could have gone either way but the victors were Christine and Ingrid by 1 shot 14 v 13.

With only 6 ends left to bowl Sheila Rattray and Maynie Roberts were cruising, a 16 shot lead (18 v 2) against their opponents Bev Rhodes and Karen McPhie.

Fortunately Bev and Karen made a comeback, narrowing the gap to 9 shots, but losing 20 v 11. The winners on the day winning with the highest score were Pam and Judy. The lucky raffle winner was Bette Saillard, thanks to The Garden Eatery for donating the raffle prize.

Thursday 6 May: Bring a Friend to Bowls Day combined with The Biggest Morning Tea and a catch up with TGWBC Golden Oldies.

Sadly rain prevented any chance of heading to the green for a bowl, but much fun was had inside Tea Gardens Country Club.

Many thanks to all who attended, donated raffle prizes and other prizes, made cash donations, baked delicious treats for morning tea and worked tediously throughout the day to make this day a great success.

I’m pleased to announce that $1,100 was raised for the Cancer Council.

Coming events: Monday 10 May – Wednesday 13 May NDWBA Singles Championship, good luck to Robyn Beaumont who is representing our Club in this event.

Monday 17 May – Friday 21 May State Carnival at Foster good bowling to our four teams participating there.
