The Parkes Bowling and Sports Club cel- ebrated this week ahead of its 100th anniversary program when the women’s bowling team qualified for the state championships next year.
Gwenda Carty, Cherie Frame, Rhona Went and Liz Byrne easily won their away match in the regional fours to become zone champions! This win also meant the fabulous four move on to the state play-offs. Congratulations!
This weekend will see our huge 100th anniversary celebrations. Tomorrow, 14th November there will be social bowls, and top-level spectator bowls as seven Parkes teams will meet seven invitational teams. The final is set for 6:30pm.
On Sunday all bowlers and visitors are invited to play at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm or all day! The fee is $15 and includes fees, hopefully a bowls shirt, BBQ and raffle! Put your name down at the bar. Tom’s “100 shirts for 100 years” has almost reached its goal! Dev’s Kitchen bistro will be open for meals.
On 24th November is our social bowls in Christmas mufti dress and Christmas- themed trading table! Yet another day of fun and frivolity!
To play social bowls next Tuesday, ring Jan/Marja on 6862 1446 between 8.30am to 9am. Social roster: Rosemary Mitchell.
