Congratulations and happy birthdays to Anne Wright and Kim Evans for reaching new heights in their birthday numbers! (Kim now pledges to enter all veteran comps!)
Thanks to Valmai and Maureen for their complimentary words on behalf of us all.
Two very happy gals cut their cake - and several non-playing, cake-seeking members arrived just in time to share!
Hot, blowy conditions saw low numbers out playing.
There were more spectators than players. Awesome greens as always - can't blame the grass for mistakes.
Valmai Westcott, Di Howell and Lynn Ryan played the better bowls to defeat Gwenda Carty, Brenda Davies and Lea Orr.
Lorraine Baker and Carol Reed enjoyed a narrow win over Heather Harvey and Fran Dixon.
Kate Keogh and Kay Craft held the advantage over Rosemary Mitchell and Anne Wright in their game.
Kate and Kay continued their winning streak by taking out the winner's draw.

On Saturday we had two games of championships and one social game, and it was hot and windy.
In the minor singles Graham Cole played Steve Clegg. This was a very entertaining match with the score close all the way in difficult conditions.
On 33 ends they were 27-all, but then Graham won the next three to win 31/27.
Congratulations Graham, who played Juicy Daley in the final on Thursday, December 3 at 5pm.

In the final three ends Tony won all, and the four Ps took out the title 18/12.
