Best wishes to Paula Hancock, Pat Weekes, Yvonne Huddleston and Sue Beavan as they travel to Jindabyne for district playoffs.
On Thursday the final of singles was played. Well done to Paula Hancock and Olga Geshwend for a very exciting match for all the spectators who came to watch. Results were very close and the game could have gone either way but congratulations to Olga who took the lead on the last few ends to become the victor.

Patrick Wheelahan drew the cards for Jackpot but no luck for the Irish! The Award this week went to our President Steven Hogan who last week was bowling Pennants at Bodalla. He went to get his shoes out of his bag and realised they were his wife's.
Thanks for the info Annie and Tony Birmingham whilst yours truly was at son's 50th birthday party in Sydney. Much appreciated.
