Club Championships


Over 90 people attended the Finals of the Men’s, Women’s and Minor Singles on Thursday 10th January and they witnessed some great bowling.

Well done to all the participants in these events and we congratulate Peter Hodgson who defeated John Horwood in a very skillful exhibition of bowling, Jean Fothergill who won a close match against Karyn Mackie, and in the Minor Singles, Morry Jones prevailed in another close oneover Stephen Wakeman

Peter Hodgson and Jean Fothergill now go on to represent the Club in the Eastern Ranges Regional Champion of Champions event to commence Sunday 3rd February and we wish them all the very best in this prestige event.
