This year has once again been a tumultuous year for a number of reasons. Some of our internal club competitions had to be put on the backburner due to the ill health of many of our members, some of whom had to be hospitalised for medical procedures. We wish them all renewed health and strength. We are hopeful that everyone will be able to return to play in the near future. A good reason to be grateful is that, other than having to observe Covid-19 protocols, our members have been largely unaffected by this pandemic.
An interesting fact: At the time of writing Umgeni Waterfall Bowling Club has 19 strong, healthy members over the age of 80! Most of them still play on a regular, weekly basis. Could this be a record?
The winners of the the competition sponsored by Halfway Toyota Howick which was held on 08 September were Audrey van Coller and Dave McLean. The runners up were Ed Speed, Mike Cain and Neill Birdsey.
The Greendale SuperSpar competition was played on Saturday, 11 September was won by Ed Sharpe, Grace Abrahams and Shayne Knott. The runners up were Piet van Rensburg and David Mainprize.
We thank both Halfway Toyota and Greendale SuperSpar for their Continued support.
