The four-ball stroke competition on Saturday was sponsored by Alex and Cheryl Howson and was the qualifying round for the Olympic Cup which has been the club’s major four-ball event since the Melbourne Olympics of 1956.
One racing club’s heartbreak is another club’s Christmas morning — and that is exactly how the Tatura and Shepparton Racing Club is feeling after picking up a rare race meeting.
Nagambie’s Anthony Haysom, 27, has always been able to stand up when it counts and has three premiership medals to show for it.
Tatura’s draw with Mansfield meant the two finals aspirants — both suffering long post-season droughts — would have to wait another round to feel assured of their progress.

Saturday’s stableford event saw an increase in numbers to allow two grades. A-grade winner with an impressive round of 78, 12, 66 was club champion Bruce Brown. He was also Privilege Cup winner for the day and shook his own hand when receiving his own sponsored prize.
Tatura and Rochester locked horns in a classic Goulburn Valley League arm-wrestle on Saturday, with the Bulldogs producing an 11-point win to virtually seal their finals fate.

With a win against Murchison-Toolamba on Saturday, a finals spot for Avenel looks almost set.

Shepparton continues to climb the Goulburn Valley League ladder.
