Max Wellins, Lew Wilson, Terry Hope, Tracey Lowry and Jim Bailey.

ANGLESEA started the 2018/19 season with its Opening Day on Saturday September 8 with Lew Wilson, Jim Bailey, Terry Hope and Max Wellins taking the honours. Bob Dwyer, Carmen Koster and Ray Murphy were runners up after a countback from Graeme Mathias, Mat Stone and Geoff Kendall. Many thanks to our sponsor Tracey Lowry, Anglesea’s local Travel Agent.

The new Monday Jackpot Social Bowls feature got off to a flying start with 40 players lining up. Congratulations to Barry Mason, Geoff Kendall, Dick McDonald and especially to Marilyn Rogers-Wilson, in her first game at the club. The draw did not produce a result, so the big prize jackpots!

Well done to Geoff Collings, John Anderson and Ross Gale who won the day in the internal Pennant Practice match last Saturday. Anglesea looks forward to better weather hosting Geelong Cement in a practice match this Saturday.

Peter Austin and Ben Coyle put on an excellent night’s meal and entertainment for the Opening Day dinner, and they are sponsoring a big Grand Final Day at the Club starting with bowls at 10.30am – open to the community. With footy food and three TV sets available, the Anglesea Bowling Club will be a great place to settle in and watch the game after the bowls.


Anyone wanting to try bowls is most welcome to contact the Club.
