Benalla bowls

By Benalla Ensign


Benalla Bowls Club has played its last two championship games.

The Open Bowlers Arm winner was Graeme Greene who defeated David Lindsay in a very close final.

The Mixed Pairs Championship went to K. Nicholls and I. Hobson, who defeated I. Brond and K. Nunan in another great final.

Saturday, April 6 was the club’s presentation day. Some 60 bowlers turned up to enjoy some bowls and a barbecue. All champions for season 2018-19 were recognised, along with special presentations to our super-veterans with the badge of honour.

Those who received this badge were Ian Jenkins, John Borthwick, Laurie Melgaard, John Edwards and Allan Rowler.
