Bowls notes

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

Vale’ Ged Martin

The Club Mulwala Outdoor Bowls are extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Ged.

Ged was a friend of the bowls group who through his dedication, professionalism and sheer hard work was a master of his craft as greenkeeper of the greens and their surrounds.

Ged was also very considerate of the needs of the bowls group and went out of his way to ensure everyone’s needs were always met, with never a grumble.

Most of all, Ged will be remembered as a true gentleman and a devoted family man, he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Christine and children, Xavier, Zoe and Fynlay at this very sad time.

From the President, Committee, and members of Club Mulwala Outdoor Bowls.

Club Mulwala Indoor Bowls

There were no bowls Monday night
August 5.

As the AGM was held on Thursday afternoon 1 game of 12 ends was played and as there was no playing charge there were no prizes.

President Tricia opened the meeting, in her report she gave an outline of the years events.

In it she mentioned the 3 successful tournaments, especially the Charity Day with the proceeds going to the “Turban Ladies” for their marvellous work, the 4 teams who played pennant and John’s team making it to the finals.

She also thanked Club Mulwala for all their help and generosity not only on the tournament days but through out the year as well.

The club sadly lost two great members in Glenyce Willcox and Keith Green, they are sadly missed.

Tricia went on to thank the match committee for their work all year through and anyone who helped out in any way.
