As always the club looked wonderful and with everyone in red and white we were a big attraction to all the people passing through the park. Just a pity that we can’t get more of those spectators into the club and learning to bowl.
41 members competed and it was good to have two new members, Marlene Randall and Steve Haslam playing in their first tournament only a few days after joining.
Of the 14 teams competing only two finished up with a perfect 3 wins – the teams skipped by Kathleen Shirley and Eve Gorringe and the scores were incredibly close. Both teams scored 39 points but by virtue of their 15+2 score in their first game Kathleen's team took the trophy. Heckie Langford’s team were strong contenders after two games but losing (6-11) their head to head with Kathleen’s team relegated them to third place.
Congratulations to Kathleen and her vice, Marilyn McMillan and lead Bonnie Sheridan. This was Bonnie’s first tournament so it was great for her to be part of the winning team.

Oh! – did I mention that Louisa and I were fourth?
