Scrounge events held on Wednesdays are proving successful.

Last week, exciting bowling was on display on the green. Two out of four rinks finished in a tied result, while the others were won by a close margin.

David Lupton made a return to bowls and displayed his evergreen trademark bowling to share the rink win with the weekly winner Ian Johnson on 38 points.

The club welcomed three visitors from the City of Echuca Bowls Club. Gail Kerr was in top form to win a rink with a superb 51.5 points ahead of John van den Bosch 47.5. June Clifford accumulated 50 points for a victory over Norma Thomas, on 41.

Belinda Cheong bowled well against spirited opposition. On rink four Don Smith and Phillip Cunnington staged an absorbing battle to finish tied on 34 points.
