Club Mulwala Outdoor Bowls
The bowls pennant season is well underway, with all club teams experiencing strong competition.
The weather has been very kind and the greens on which members have played have been in wonderful condition.
Mid-week saw Division 2 travel to Moira Benalla where a strong showing on all rinks resulted in a solid win - the hospitality of Moira bowlers was really appreciated.
Division 4 travelled to Rutherglen where once again they represented the club extremely well.
The experienced and new bowlers continue to blend very well, however Rutherglen were just too strong on the day.
Saturday A4 hosted Yackandandah with a fantastic close battle all day.
Excellent bowls played in a great competetive spirit, on a perfect green on the first really hot day. The ClubMulwala team did well to be just in front when it mattered.
Practice is now up and running each Thursday from 3.30pm onwards, for those members who work practice will still be going well after 5pm so don’t miss out.
There will be a coach available to answer any questions or assist all in improving their skills.
The days and time for social games are likely to change as players begin club events, make sure you check the notice board regularly.
Congratulations to Laureen Smith on earning another club championship, this time at YMGCR, members miss you around the club and keep an eye on what you are up to.
