The one moment you’re playing in the most glorious sunshine, wondering how on earth you actually forgot you sun cream at home. Then two hours after finishing your game, the green was pelted with rain and hail and this did not just happen once this past week but twice. The result of it all is that our greens are lush, our beloved Midmar Dam is full and ready to overflow and we still got to play all the bowls we wanted to.
There were no sponsored competitions held this past week but we did see the culmination of our 2 Bowl Trips Internal Competition. Congratulations to the team of Barbara Brook, Dudley Ventress and Neil Wright who are 2018’s first champions. In an absolutely pulsating match they beat the team of John Withers, David Mainprize and David Riall by 15 – 13. The next club sponsored competition will be played on Saturday 10 February with tabs in at 1.15pm and will be our SUPERSPAR Greendale sponsored comp which will be followed by our Halfway Toyota Howick competition on Wednesday the 14th of February which also happens to be Valentine’s Day.
The highlight of the week was our Prize Giving which was held on Saturday 3 February at a bring and share event. It was wonderful to spend time celebrating the achievements of our bowlers and special thanks to all the members for the lovely spread of eats. As a club we would like to congratulate the following bowlers on their success on our bowling greens during 2017. The champions for 2017 were as follows Ladies Singles: Alison Toms, Men’s Singles: Clark Logan, Novice Singles: Mark Taylor, Nominated Ladies Pairs: Alison Toms & Lyn Durandt, Nominated
