Another week, another mixed bag of activities and results.

On February 4 both our midweek pennant sides were successful against East Shepparton and Colbinabbin. Hopefully that result has cemented division two’s spot in the finals in a fortnight. Well done to all pennant players.

As most members would be aware the midweek 100 Up scheduled to begin last Thursday did not go ahead but it is hoped that the first round will be played tomorrow from 10am. As always please check the noticeboard or contact a member of the relevant match committee.

On Saturday the heat once again played a major part in proceedings. The division three side managed to get in three-four ends at Murchison before play was abandoned, while at Avenel neither we nor Dookie managed to get out on to the green before play was abandoned.

There will be a mystery meal followed by twilight bowls on Friday; the meal to be at 6pm followed by bowls (if anyone wishes to play) at 7pm. Names on list please.

Belated birthday greetings to Len for Saturday. Happy birthday to David for today.


Great result in terrible conditions for the Nagambie midweek pennant side last week against Stanhope.
