Tongala Bowling Club was the venue for our last game before the start of the summer period.
It was a hot day with a slight variable breeze.
Two grass greens were in play, both bowling at a reasonable rate. Thanks to Tongala’s green keeper.
On the day 30 teams arrived totalling 120 bowlers from 10 clubs - a great turnout over 15 rinks.
Only two teams achieved three game wins, both from Lockington. Once again, they must really enjoy chicken.
Runners-up were led by Graham Turner, with K. Humbert, A. Harris and G. Hyden, finishing with two bowls within the yardstick.
The winning team was led by Jim Harris, with Kalvin Stout, Roly Head and Ian Palmer.
Summer is here so please note bowling will start at 11am.
The next venue is Valley View, on Wednesday, December 6. Contact is Rod Donohue, phone 03 5852 2249.
