Winners Are Grinners                      8/11/2016

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.

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.
