Indoor Bowlers Honour Saved!                                        (25/6/2015)

Tonight thanks to beefburgers and ice cream, the Indoor Bowlers beat the Outdoor Bowlers in the second of their series of monthly contests.  They gained revenge for their defeat in May and tied the series at one all.  The third game will be on Thursday 30th July at 6.30.  It remains to be seen whether the Pizza being served that night can spark the Outdoor Bowlers to a win. The Entry Sheet is just inside the main entrance to the clubhouse.

Health Discussion Forum at Modbury Bowling Club.
Channel 7 crossed live to our clubrooms where Jane Doyle presented a news item on the forum during Seven’s 6pm News Service.
Approximately 140 people attended the meeting where politicians, clinicians and the public were given equal opportunities to express their hopes, feelings and expectations for the future of the Modbury Hospital and health services in metropolitan Adelaide. The meeting was spirited at times, but Jane’s excellent mediation skills ensured thumb_DSC07815_1024that decorum was maintained throughout. At the conclusion of the meeting people had the opportunity to approach the politicians with private concerns.
On a lighter note, prior to the meeting I had the opportunity to meet with Jane for a photo opportunity and a light hearted discussion on Social Media.
