COLOUR AND EXCITEMENT
The Parkes Bowling and Sports Club was buzzing with excitement and colour on our Spring Fling Gala Bowls Day on Tuesday.
All 52 bowlers enjoyed getting together with visitors from other clubs, dressing in colourful, floral mufti, and playing social bowls.
We all lined up to bowl one delivery, simultaneously, towards the “spider” to start off the day. Chris Cox and Betsy Johnstone accepted the offered prizes.
The “Irish” end tested us out, with the jack being rolled towards the bowls, instead of the normal order of events. And to finish, we played with our opposite hand, leaving many of us diving for cover!
With a picnic-style lunch awaiting us, the action moved inside. A tremendous day all round, and we raised $981 for CanAssist!
Happy birthdays to November calendar babes: Helen, Elaine and Heather!
To play social bowls next Tuesday, call the club, 68621446, between 9 – 9:30am to play at 10am.
