On a perfect midsummer day Frank Bray, our President, welcomed 48 members of the club to an afternoon of friendly bowling matches.
The format for the competition was 3 games of 8 ends each with a short break at the end of each game to allow for change of rinks and refreshments.
The final scores resulted in a win of just one shot with Ann Miles, Graham Mason, Judy Bangs and Barry Horsley (s) scoring 30 – 17 against and Kate Nixon, Mick Fisher,Val Hooker and Lindsay Bangs (s) scoring 30 with 18 against.
It couldn't have been any closer! 

With the bowling over everyone returned to the club house to enjoy a two course meal prepared by Jan Derkatsch, the social secretary and her army of helpers.
Frank then presented vouchers to the winning team of the day ,bottles of wine to the runners up, boxes of chocolates to all those who had helped and a vote of thanks to everyone for making his day so memorable.
The special guests invited were Roger Smith, Terry Mulligan, John Derkatsch, Jenny Knotts and Maurice and Peg Lillywhite.
A toast of congratulations to Maurice and Peg Lillywhite, longstanding members who had recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, brought this most enjoyable day to a close.

Thank you Frank, a great day.
