Indoor Bowls Season Wrap                                14/8/2016
It has been yet another successful season for the Modbury indoor bowlers with the ladies ‘White’ Team winning their division and ‘Back to Back’ pennants. The men’s ‘C’ team were also successful winning the Green division pennant.
On the domestic front, the ladies singles championship was won by Ria Krebbekx  defeating Jackie Barber in the final. The men’s singles title was played for the first time in several years with the champion title going to Keiran Hackett with his win over Dean Ferris. Congratulations to all players.
The last remaining game to be played is the Indoor  v  Outdoor bowlers in the Clubrooms on Thursday 18th August. With several of their stars off to the Australian Indoor Tiles at Shellharbour, NSW, the ‘Outdoor’ side are beginning to think they may have a slight chance of winning the trophy.
Pictured below are our club’s State Representatives in their uniform finery.

Adelaide’s Wild Weather                           12/6/2016

The picture below shows the results of the hailstorm at about 9.45am on Tuesday 12th July. Our already saturated greens appeared to have had a severe dusting of snow. For those interested in Trivia, my rainfall stats at Walkley Heights indicate that we had just 10 rain free days in June, and just 5 in the first 13 days of July.
