Midweek pennant last Tuesday was a great result for Seymour. All four teams played at home. The two CBD division one teams playing one another, resulted in a win for Seymour Blue getting up in two of the three rinks. Division two GV played Avenel resulting in a another win, 14-78 to Avenel 2-55, being successful in two of the three rinks. Division three GV played East Shepp, winning all rinks in that game. Must have been the hot scones before play started that day.
Saturday pennant results were a mixed bag with one win, one draw and two losses. Division one GV were competitive getting up in two rinks of the four. Max Hammond had a close game winning 23 to 20. David Atkins rink had a slightly more comfortable win — the score line being 32 to 18.
Division five GV playing at home had a nice win over Euroa 16-102 to 0-51 — practice is paying off for this team. Saturday they will travel to Stanhope.
Division one CBD also played at home coming up with a good result in this game against Broadford. Seymour had two winning rinks and a drawn rink, taking the points over Broadford. The scores were level at the end of the game.
Division two CBD also played Broadford at Broadford, the home side winning by 24 shots and all three rinks.
Central Bowls Division began on Saturday when the division one team played Kilmore at their green, in a good game with Kilmore again having a win over Seymour VRI by seven shots down overall. Division two began their season with a win on the number two green against Kilmore and with a bit of luck managed to win by six shots up overall. In the Goulburn Valley competition the Seymour VRI team won their third game and all is going to plan in that side. Seymour VRI played Shepparton Park on the VRI green winning two rinks and one rink going down by one shot.
The VRI team travelled to Kilmore in what should have been a competitive game and with some new players being inducted into Division One it could have been a gamble as to whether or not the gamble paid off. Winning two rinks was not quite enough to bring home the points.
Division two playing Kilmore on the number two green held on winning two rinks, although one rink on the last end for a six shot win. Congratulations to Brett Voogt for his first game of pennant.
The team competing in the Goulburn Valley District were at home to Shepparton Park, in a game that was unpredictable as Shepparton Park was third on the ladder in division five. Winning two rinks by big margins and one rink going down by only one shot was most pleasing and continuing wins for Seymour VRI predicts that the team has a future on the bigger stage. An overall win by 39 shots will be taken any day.
On Saturday division one will host Seymour at the VRI green and play for the Stuart Arthur Doyle Shield in the local derby to retain the shield. Division two play at the Tallarook St green against Seymour, while the Goulburn Valley division five team expect to go on their winning way against Hill Top at the VRI number two green.

AUSTRALIAN MASTERS GAMES
Seymour bowler Diane Templeton recently won a gold medal at the Australian Masters Games.
In a tight finish, she combined with former Seymourite Scott Fletcher, now representing Kilmore, to win the over-35 mixed pairs competition in Geelong.
In their first competition together, the pair beat Crib Point couple Noelene and Mark Brennan by two shots at Belmont Bowls Club.
“Our win today .
‘‘We thought we would have a dip at it and we came out on top, which is fantastic.’’
‘‘We’ve met some wonderful people who have just been great,’’ Templeton said.
Nagambie had a good win against Avenel in midweek pennant in the end but before lunch break it was close on both rinks. This week was Sharon’s team to win and Vicki’s to draw but Nagambie still collected 13 out of 14 points. The final score was 48/37.
Fiona Smith had a go at thirding for Vicki while Charles led again and Dorothy came back after being ill last week.
Sharon’s team fortunately stayed the same and all players are working well together.
So far going well bowlers, keep up the good work.
