And just like that, it’s February – named after the Roman festival of purification, Februa! The purest of birthdays this month to Frances and Maree!
We were 17 gals sanitising our hands and bowls and headed to the top green on Tuesday.
Lorraine Baker/Jan McPhee/Cherie Frame brushed away any threat from their opposition and won by a good margin against Kay Craft/Laurie Keane/Rhona Went over on rink 16.
After a pretty close game on rink 18, Merilyn Rodgers/Carol Reed/Lea Orr filtered off a few iffy deliveries and cleaned up against Gwenda Carty/Valmai Westcott/ Marja Iffland.
Three against two meant nothing on rink 17. Eileen Bradley/Kim Evans/Di Howell demanded a swab from their two opponents, Frances Charlton and Maria Willcockson, who attempted a clean-sweep of the points.
Rehydration couldn’t come quick enough, and Maureen was kept busy for a while! Thank you, always!
Maria, Merilyn, Marja and Eileen were all flushed to win $$ in the 100’s club.
A reminder that nominations are open for the Club Championships for 2022. Close at 12 noon on Tuesday, 8th February. First round a week later.
Our next Trading Table on 22nd February will have a “yellow” theme. Gifts with a minimum value of $10 please. Get your thinking caps on!
Next week, to play social bowls, call the club 6862 1446 between 9 – 9:30am, with play to begin at 10am. New bowlers and visitors are always welcome. Social Roster: Chris Cox
