Mens Fours Winners - CopyModbury 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.

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.
