Wangaratta Bowls

Wangaratta Bowls Club member Lyn Danvers reached a significant milestone in bowls on Tuesday, being presented with her Veterans badge by President Margaret Wilson.

Across the region, Wangaratta Players represented the club at Airlie Beach Ladies President’s Day and a team of four players played in the Suburban Centenary Fours two day Carnival in Townsville.

Congratulations to Denise Wallace, Teresa Willshire, Penny Warren, and Fely Duncan in coming third place in the tournament.

With so many players away, the crowd was small on Tuesday but the enthusiasm was there with Greg Colquhoun and Kevin Jewell defeating Graeme Read and Geoff Danvers.

Bron Tolcher, Roger Mumby, and Linda Smith defeated Stumpy Adams, Sue Shearing, and Lyn Danvers.

Club Competition: Ladies A Singles Penny Warren defeated Robyn Stitt, while in the Men’s Fours final played on Sunday Morning, Lloyd White, Steve Roome, and Jason and Mitch Wright narrowly defeated Bill Myers, Greg Colquhoun, Peter Hinschen, and Geoff Danvers.  

Winners on Sunday social bowls were Merle Elphinstone, Penny Warren, and Mark Drummond, who defeated Bron Tolcher, Pat Tracey, and Kevin Jewel. Irene Laird, Denise Wallace, and Geoff Danvers defeated Debbie Retchless, Sue Shearing, and Greg Colquhoun.
