Saturday Winter Bowls. Thank you Diane Cameron for this report.
Winter Bowls Tournament No.1
Saturday 11th May was the first day of our Winter Bowls Tournament with 20 excited players ready to play 2 games of pairs.
Everyone turned up early, with morning tea provided, most chatted about Echuca, work, new sets of bowls, the weather and “The Tournament”
All bowlers were welcomed by “The Assistant” (Janette) and then the talking stick was passed onto Diane (Tournament Director).
Firstly we welcomed Marika and Andrew to EBC and the rules of the game were read out. Score cards were handed out and off weren’t to start our first game.
First game was finished by 12.30, followed by lunch and a raffle. the second game started at 1pm and we got through the game just as quick. back inside for a cuppa and the daily prize money was handed out. well done to all bowlers and thank goodness the rain stayed away. We even saw blue skies and glorious sun.
Today’s winners were Gordon Rees and Sally King. Gordon even got first prize in the raffle. Many thanks to Chelsea Meats for the voucher. Also thanks to Claire and Pauline for filling in today.
