Dural bowls

2019 BEGINS WITH STORM OR HEAT, but the Dural ladies turned up for the first day of bowls full of enthusiasm. They needed a practice before the first championship event, Pairs, starts in the second week.

2018 ended with a Christmas party and presentation of the trophies from the year’s events with everyone in Christmas attire. Singles Champion, Elizabeth Whelan, received her coveted gold badge from hard-working President, Robyn Scoble who had organised a great day, ending with Christmas Carols to the accompaniment of Ann Wilson on her lovely keyboard.

Some of the members are already planning for their trip to the state carnival at the end of May, to be held at Tuncurry. Teams of four play round robin for three days with the top 16 playing knock-out for two more days. Some Dural ladies always enter and often they do very well against top opposition from the big “professional” clubs and have a lot of fun on the way.

The ladies will join with the men for social bowls on ANZAC day, to be followed by a BBQ. Always a great day as they remember the sacrifices which allow us to live as we do.
