On Saturday, the winners of the Medley Fours was Matt O’Brien and team from Yarra Glen, runners up being Phil Peers (Wodonga), Don Lawton, Bill Solomon and Bernie Dillon.
Sunday’s Mixed Fours winners were Bill and Pat Dawe and Don and Maureen Prudden, runners-up Lynton and Lyn Gleeson (Broadford) playing with Lyn’s brother Rob and his wife from Caloundra, Queensland. Congratulations to all.
Thanks must go to our supporters and sponsors, the Seymour Club, Ray White, Avenel Bank Street Pizza, Blacks Contracting, Burtons Stores, Choices Flooring, GD and SL O’Sullivan, Seymour News, Howard Squires and Fowles Wines.
The bowls committee wish to thank all members who helped the club by providing assistance over the weekend — the manager and umpire, greens staff, catering and bar staff, markers and general duty helpers — thanks one and all.
