Hot off the Press
Our bowlers acquitted themselves well at the past weekend’s NIBA Novice tournament at the Maritzburg West Bowling Club. Most won at least one of the two games they played but some fell short of qualifying for the next round. We are however incredibly proud of Bev Vorster and Lisa Nagel who have both made it through to the Quarter Final stage of the tournament. Good luck to both of you on the 24th of June. We will all be rooting for you. (Congrats as well to our neighbours Howick Bowling Club who also had 3 bowlers qualify for the playoff stages. Well done Doreen, Dave and Steve.)
The Warwick Wealth Competition held on Wednesday 6 June was a huge success and much fun. With the generous sponsorship of Warwick Wealth we managed to hand out 15 prizes in total on the day. The top 4 prize winners were Balf Balfour, Colin Brown, David Riall and Conrad Clifford. Over and above the prizes, Warwick Wealth also handed out Loyalty awards to our members who have portfolios invested with them. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Warwick Wealth, this was an all-around winning day for our club. Special thanks to Managers Conrad Clifford and Stuart Milligan or being present on the day to represent of sponsors.
On Saturday 9 June, in glorious sunshine, we played our monthly SUPERSPAR Greendale Competition. SUPERSPAR Greendale once again adorned our premises with promotional banners and lovely treats on our tea time table. After some epic battles, the SUPERSPAR Greendale Sponsored first prize went to Tony Gage, Tony Stalberg and Jenny McHendrie. The second prize sponsored by local Ophthalmologist Dr Alan Sara was won by Alison Toms, Alan Wells, Pat Bailie and Eric Simpson. Special thanks to SUPERSPAR Greendale and Dr Alan Sara for their sponsorships and thanks to those who had birthdays this past week. Our tea time table had some double blessing on it on Saturday.
