Tea Gardens Women’s Bowling Club

Judi Polak and Karen McPhie winners of the Grange RSL Life Care Trophy Day with Club President Deyonne Page and Julie Woolard Manager of the Grange Tea Gardens.


TUESDAY 23 November: Numbers down at bowls today due to the unpredictable weather we are experiencing, as it was only one team managed to play 18 ends before the rain started.

Format for play was two games of two bowls Triples and a game of three bowls Pairs.

Dawn May, Ingrid Luck and Judy McGavock were ten shots ahead on the 11th end, 16 v 6 bowling against Dawn Jones, Liv Everingham and Lynda Richards.

Thankfully Lynda’s team rallied just losing this contest by four shots, 19 v 15. Judi Polak, Jean Glover and Sandra Leisemann led all the way defeating Lyn Nightingale, Bette Saillard and Karen McPhie 18 v 8.

Bev Rhodes and Robyn Webster started strongly and continued bowling constantly well, winning on the 16th end 20 v 11, the losers here being Sheril Johnson and Deyonne Page.

Winners on the day ‘winning with the lowest margin’ were Dawn, Ingrid and Judy.

The raffle was won by Robyn Webster, thanks to The Garden Eatery for their donation of the raffle prize.
