Mild temperatures, a gentle breeze and a sunny day. We couldn’t have asked for better weather for our Mixed Fours Invitational on the 29th November. The day was sponsored by Gippsland Grain Store, with a smaller contribution from local State Member Tim Bull, and the major raffle prize donated by Fermio Garden Supplies.
With 12 teams playing the green was fully occupied and the challenge was on. The atmosphere was cheerful with all players enjoying their day and, with two games to be played, there were two opportunities to achieve a win. (Unfortunately the photographer – who was also playing – completely forgot to take her camera so there are no photos of the play to post.)
Between the games an enjoyable lunch of chicken & mango salad was served with a special dressing known only to our wonderful catering manager, Pauline Clearson. This was followed by a delicious dessert of either individual lemon meringue pies or vanilla & chocolate layered mousse topped with cream & strawberries.
After the games the players relaxed with an afternoon tea of slices and other treats whilst the presentations were made and the raffle was drawn.
With four raffle prizes there was a good chance that players would get a prize.
Then came the presentations for the winning teams.
The First game winners, from Bruthen Bowls Club, were Steve Colbeck, Greg Blair, Greg ? & Mal McPherson.
The second game winners were the team from Orbost Bowls Club.
The overall Runners-Up were were Hugh Mack who was visiting from Glasgow, Scotland, Ernie Banks, Janette Fraser & Judi Banks, all from Metung Bowls Club.
Our overall Winners on the day were also from Metung. They were Alex Dunbar, Peter Attard, Ken & Cheryl Warner.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who participated to make this the great day it was.
