Congratulations to all the bonny lassies for embracing the theme of the President's Day Mini Carnival!
Thanks so much to the ground control blokes for preparing the greens and surrounds so beautifully, especially after the bountiful rain!
First off, the poor old spider was bowled over as we scrambled to land our bowls closest to him.
June and Merilyn blitzed the field and bagged the prizes!
Start of play had us all befuddled as we had to deliver our first three bowls with our non-favoured hand.
Maree has offered to coach this skill next week, and some ladies have decided to change hands permanently!
Winners on the day were Frances Charlton and Jan McPhee in those breath-taking fishnet stockings!
Had us all green with envy!
Thank you, Mr Mick Craft, for your sponsorship of the day!
The buzz went around that Dev's Kitchen was catering for lunch, so several more non-playing members joined us for a delicious repast.
We were all winners on the day - raffles, lucky doors, best-dressed, consolation.
Our club is blessed with many fine cooks.
Thanks must go to Joan, Hilda and Frances for donations of baked goods!
