Wangaratta Bowls

It has been another big week for Wangaratta Bowls.

Ladies President Margaret’s Day was a great morning followed by a scrumptious lunch.

Our North Qld District officials together with bowlers from Thuringowa, Brandon, Ayr, our southern visitors, and local members made it a memorable day for Margaret.

As usual Pat organised beautiful corsages for Margaret and the NQ Ladies, and also produced an iced fruit cake for the occasion.

To make Margaret’s day, Irene presented her with a beautiful Phalaenopsis Orchid.

Winners for the afternoon were Wilma Berryman, Irene Laird, Ron Hyde, and Pam Power.

Runners Up were Jocelyn Defranciscis and Michael Loughhead Grant.

Third place went to Viv Boskma, Marlenne Chappell, and Penny Warren.

Not only have the ladies had success on the green.

The men played like champions on the weekend to secure the annual Country Pennant Shield for 2023 defeating Brandon, Ayr, and Bowen Bowls Club.

Barefoot bowls continued onto Friday night with winners Bob and Denis defeating Alysn, Ian, Grant, and Teresa Lawrence defeating Kerry, Lori, Penny, and Wendy Hans Les David defeating Helga, Wazza, Jimmy, and Gus.

Contributed with thanks to Penny Warren.
