A thanks to Les Scott for running the raffle and Rob Jackway for helping with the day’s preparations. Also, thank you to Tim Arbon and crew who turn up early each Friday morning to prepare the greens prior to the day’s play.
Please keep in mind, if the weather forecast on Thursday indicates the temperature for Friday will reach 35 C degrees or more, play will start an hour earlier at 11:00 AM. Occasionally, Friday social bowls may be played on grass and or synthetic greens depending on weather conditions. So please ensure you have the appropriate attire to wear to protect you against the sun if playing on grass.
Keep Them Rolling,
