Invitation Day saw a good turnout of visiting bowlers who enjoyed the sunny day. The conditions were drawn from the hat, and the winners with the highest score were D. Townsend, K. Wilson, C. Glenbar and K. McClean.
The runners-up were B. Dann’s team from Albert Bowls Club. There were cash prizes for winning lead, second, third and skip.
The Ladies Bowls next Invitation Day will be on Tuesday, August 4.
On Thursday, August 6 a very special day of bowls will be held to honour Doris Wright on her 100th birthday. Doris is a founding member of the Tin Can Bay Ladies Bowls and has held every position on the committee.
Last month, we had a visit from QRI Bowls Club with 20 teams competing. There were two rinks of fours and eight rinks of triples.
As we were also celebrating Ron Sollaye’s birthday [patron on the Men’s bowls] the winning cards were drawn from the hat. The winners were, skip – Linda Collins, second – George Montgomery, and lead – Shelia Ormerond.
Another round of winning draws were awarded cash prizes, then a draw of losing leads, skips and seconds were given packs of soft drinks donated by Ron.
Visitors escaping the cold from the South are always welcome to join us in a game of bowls on Wednesday [men only], Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Games start at 12.30 pm.
