I am really pleased to report that the Div 5, Tuesday Pennant side had a great comeback win. This team struggles weekly to fill a team and despite being more than 20 shots down at the break they fought on each rink and manufactured a great win. Well done to all bowlers and a special mention to Roger Morrison who has taken the responsibility for not just this but also the Div 7 team on Saturday and is certainly instilling a sense of pride and belonging to all bowlers who play in these teams.
Let’s not also forget the Div 3 team that has now won 34 in a row and is just in the top 4 after a rocky start due mainly to availability issues. Great to see this team back where it belongs.
On Saturday a couple of last end away losses prove how close we are to success. Whilst availability remains an issue all bowlers are working hard and trying to improve at both practice and during the game. The Div 4 sides currently after 6 rounds sits 3rd and the Div 7 team just outside the 4 although this current position is not a true reflection as all other sides have had either byes or walkovers and to this point we have not so we look on target to play finals and look at that promotion to Div 6.
What can I say that hasn’t been said, a great afternoon managed by Anita D’Andrea and her large happy bunch of supporters. South of the River were great and all in attendance raved about them and then the food spread that was laid on.
From a club perspective this was a great fundraiser as well as a great opportunity to see members relaxed and enjoying themselves.
WELL DONE TO ALL INVOLVED!!!!
Hocking Stuart Day
This event is scheduled for late November but will not happen at this date as we have not been able to tie down Hocking Stuart, we will work with them and then reschedule.
Forms are up in the club for volunteers. If you have a few hours a week the residents could use a hand!!!
East Malvern Branch – Bendigo Bank:
The East Malvern Branch of Bendigo Bank and specifically Peter Norman and Ruth are great supporters of our club. Their major sponsor day is Nov 24th when next we are on home soil. Please consider the Bank for all your mortgage and finance needs or investment options. We are working closely on a community project with them which will be great for the club and for the community. I am clear that as a club we need to do more for the community and having the continued support of the East Malvern Branch of Bendigo Bank is a great asset, once again they have supported us as we look to have a disabled toilet put into the club rooms.
