Seymour bowlers Denise Hogan, Maureen Prudden, Lyn Meek and Sylvia Love representing Central Goulburn Murray defeated Ovens and Murray and Central Victoria before losing to Gippsland in the semi-final of State Fours.
A successful annual Easter Tournament was played and won on a weekend which was kind to the club with cooler weather.
The popular Two-Bowl Triples held on Friday with many regular visitors from all over Victoria was won by Paul Nicholls and his team from East Shepparton.
The runners-up were Peter Delzotto, Ian McBean and Phil Challis from Seymour VRI.
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.
