Friday Social Bowls 2nd December 2016
It was a pleasant day on the greens with 78 players making up 26 teams.
2 game winners were Dean Ferris, Ross (Grumpy) Maunder and Des Campbell with a score 55 points with 15 shots up.
Runners up were Cynthia Stewart, Peter Stewart and Brian Hodkinson with a score of 53 points and 15 shots up, beating the next contenders by 1 shot.
Also caps off to the three players who had resting touchers at the same time in the second game.
Thanks to Sylvia Aebi for looking after the kitchen, Les Scott for running the raffle and the ground staff for their time and effort in keeping the greens up to scratch.

Eight Badges 16/11/2016
Eight badges are very hard to come by, so congratulations must go to Pat Garcia, Pam Jones Iris Barnett and Sally jarred who achieved an eight count in a Division 3 North pennant match against an Elizabeth rink on 10th November. Well done ladies!!
Winners Are Grinners 8/11/2016
Modbury bowlers made up the bulk of the team that won the Gordon Winkley Memorial Fours at Prospect Broadview yesterday. In a very candid interview, Wayne Mack assured me their team suffered the toughest of draws, but their innate ability to find the jack almost every end saw them come away as the only 4 game winners on the day.
Pennant Players – Reminder 27/10/2016
If you have been selected and become unavailable to play on a given day, please ring the club between 9.45am and 10.45 am on the day of play so that side alterations can be made without delay.
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.
