THIRTY-SIX Campaspe Valley Bowls Division bowlers received their Super Vets badges at the City of Echuca bowls club on Monday after a game of bowls.

Awarded to bowlers who had turned 80 throughout the year, every vet was introduced by someone from their own club and there were certainly many amazing achievements, as well as touching and hilarious stories shared.

Apologies were received from super vets who were unable to attend, and they will receive their badges at club functions.

It was inspiring to see bowlers aged 80 competing, laughing, and generally having a good time.

A new rule was introduced during the game, if a measure was needed they had to toss a coin to see who won. Resting touchers were rewarded and the game was enjoyed by all.

Lunch was followed by the presentations, where each lady received a posy of flowers with her badge.

Most evident was bowls has brought friendship to all, with our clubs playing an extremely important role in the community. Congratulations to everyone.
