Wangaratta Bowls Report

Fantastic News, last week our Ladies Pennant Teams - Wangaratta/Noorla played like champions as they are and won the Blue Pennant in Townsville.

What an achievement, with 7 Match wins out of 9, they defeated the Townsville teams of Suburban (Runners Up), South Townsville and Thuringowa Clubs.

To add icing to the cake Penny Warren’s team which included Denise Wallace, Linda Scells and Linda Smith took out the Wilma Berryman Trophy for the best performing team with 7 out 9 wins.

You can’t take the smile off the ladies’ faces.

Last week I mentioned some visitors were arriving.

Well within the week, we are now playing Fun Friday and on Monday our self-selected triples will commence.

Winners for Tuesday afternoon were Gwenda Lydom, Lorraine Knight, Peter Howie defeated Pam R, Denis M, and Peter Nisbett.

The jackpot didn’t go off.

A great crowd cam to play on Sunday with 8 rinks in play.

Congratulations to Penny Warren and her partner Ando in reaching the semi-final of the State District Mixed Pairs in Townsville on the weekend.

They were narrowly defeated by 1 shot. Better luck next year.  

Contributed with thanks to Penny Warren.
