From The Mat – September 21, 2017

October 26, 2017 BY

THE season formally opened with a hectic Opening Day last Saturday.

Tracey Lowry, Anglesea Travel Agent, sponsored an excellent afternoon of bowls.

Kaye Kendall, Yumie Raman and Dot Hermann took the honours.

After a general meeting of the club, a big gathering of members spent the evening dining and dancing at the Anglesea Hotel.

Hospitality capacity at our temporary marquee was tested and coped quite well during a Pennant Practice visit by Geelong Cement Bowls Club. Anglesea narrowly won the day.

Demolition of the old clubrooms has gone as far as possible until necessary electrical connections are installed. These delays are frustrating, but the club is hopeful Powercor will eventually deliver their promised services.

Social bowls will take place each Thursday at 12.30pm unless other events are scheduled for that time.

Congratulations to recent social bowls winners: Keith Hornibrook, Kaye Kendall, Graham Marks, Ken Bunning, Leon Wilson, Dot Hermann, Kevin Ingwersen, Dick McDonald, Ben Coyle, Noel Johns, Bob Dwyer and Barry Nancarrow.
