Thursday 7th December: ‘Break up day”.
Good to see so many lady bowlers present for the final day of bowls 2017. Prior to play 3 Spiders were played.
The winners of the Spider were Lynne Green, Pat Baker and Maynie Roberts.
This year TGWBC will be presenting a cheque for $350 to the Free Clinic bus, proceeds from our Spiders.
The format for play was Triples. Fun from beginning to end especially when we were asked to bowl with our opponents bowls, then to bowl with the opposite hand that you usually bowl with. The best one of all was after all the bowls were played the Jack was resited to the T. Good result for those bowlers who might have played some not too good shots.
Prizes were given to winners and losers by drawing cards.
The winners were Francis Betar, Julie Kennedy and Kayelene Pearson. The “Lucky Losers” were Jeanette Emmett, Dorothy Thompson and Carol Hayden. Following play everyone enjoyed a fabulous lunch, catered by our wonderful Social Committee.
On behalf of our Club President Robyn Webster and all the Tea Gardens Women Bowlers we would like to wish Vicki Rankin every success bowling at her new cub, Raymond Terrace.
Vicki has been a great asset to our club her achievements include running Sunday Introduction to Bowls for 7 years, Secretary of TGWBC for 7 years, Winner of many Club Championships, Newcastle District Representative Player and Chairperson Newcastle District Selection Committee.
Vicki was always willing to help in every facet of our Club.Two major events that she helped organise were the Unfurling of the Flag when our Grade 2 and Grade 3 Pennant teams won and the Club’s 60th Birthday celebration.
Best of luck Vicki, from all your friends in Tea Gardens.
Bowling for our members begins on Tuesday 9th January, 2018. Wishing all a happy and safe Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
