Bowls notes

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

YMGCR Bowls

With the border closed to all the champion Yarrawonga members, there’s not too much to report. Wednesday social bowls had 12 players enjoy a fun afternoon with a new bowler finally making his debut in Dennis Miles. 

To all new bowlers in Mulwala, it is now a good time to go to Sunday morning coaching. Anne Miles had 7 people last Sunday and they did several drills and spoke about different rules. 

An update on Les Balfour; he got home last week in an ambulance and is progressing very well and getting stronger by the day. Les and Robyn would like to thank all his club mates that rang him.

Yarrawonga Bowls 

Numbers have been well up for this time of year due to Covid -19, bowlers not being able to go north for the winter and with the order closure as well; we have had bowlers from YMGCR and Club Mulwala join us. 

Everyone looks to be enjoying their bowls and social interaction. I was told by a YMGCR bowler how pleased they were to be made so welcome by our members.  

Great to hear!
