The week under review had some very interesting activities and competitions. Including having to deal with the early onset of winter. Our President would also like to thank to all those members and visitors who participated in our Spider Fundraising Roll. We managed to raise R560 and said funds have been donated to The Howick Hospice.

The Midlands area including our club was decently represented in the NIBA Senior Singles competition, where the Howick based bowlers acquitted themselves well. Even though our bowlers did not make it through to the playoff stages we would like to congratulate Beverley Vorster, Margie Holl and Colin Burden for representing the club at this competition.
