CLUB UPDATE NO.2

EDITHVALE BOWLS CLUB – UPDATE

 

Hello one and all. I hope this Update finds you all well and still coping with the period of self-isolation.  As we had to postpone our AGM, and many of our members have been away from the Club let’s do a quick overview of the 2019/20 Pennant season. Congratulations to our Midweek, Saturday and Night Pennant teams for the season and results they achieved.

 

MIDWEEK – We had 4 teams compete and all 4 teams made the finals.  Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th side didn’t make the Grand Final but our players gave it their best.  Our top side made the Grand Final and played Noble Park at Glen Waverley on Thursday 19th March.  Sadly there were ‘No Spectators’ allowed, so I will say our players went there with a strong determination to win and win they did, by 9 shots.  The Premiership Flag will be collected when the self- isolating period is over.

 

SATURDAY –We also had 4 teams competing and our second side made finals.  Sadly they didn’t make the Grand Final, but a valiant effort by all players.

 

NIGHT – We increased to 2 teams this season, but sadly we could not complete the season, with the last game and finals cancelled due to COVID-19.  So, Division Winners and Runners-up were awarded to the Top 2 teams from each division as the ladder stood, meaning that our second side were Runners-up in Division 5.

 

Membership Invoices for 2020/21 have been emailed, ‘snail’ mailed, collected from the club or hand delivered to our members.  Thanks to those members who have already paid their membership.  Originally, 30th April 2020 is the cut-off date for the $20 discount of your fee, but the Board has decided to extend the $20 discount date to 30th June 2020.  If you have not received your membership renewal invoice please email or call me on the number below.

 

OTHER ITEMS:

A big WELCOME to new members who have recently joined the club.  We are planning a ‘Welcome Afternoon Tea’ for later in the year.
