Members should please make note of the following important diary dates:
Saturday 29 August – Opening of the Green starting at 12.30pm and finishing with a Devonshire Tea at around 3.30pm. This is a free event for members and it will be a great opportunity to get everyone together for the new season.
Saturday 5 September – the first of three practice matches, all at home, the first of which is against Princes Park.
Saturday 12 September – the second practice match against Middle Park.
Saturday 19 September – the third practice game against MCC.
Saturday 26 September – the annual grudge match between Divisions 4 & 6 will be played, and this day is also special because all pennant players will be presented with their new club shirts, compliments of Cabrini Health.
Tuesday 29 September – pennant matches start for the mid-week (Tuesday) competition
Sunday 4 October – (the day after the AFL Grand Final) Saturday pennant starts. The not so good news for the Malvern Bowling Club is that in drawing up the fixture for this year’s Saturday pennant games, our request to Bowls Vic for Divisions 4 & 6 to play their home and away games on the same day was not acted upon, and so we will be playing one team at home each week, and one team away.
Saturday 7 November – Tournament Day, where 16 teams will play for the Cabrini Cup (4 teams from Malvern and 12 from other clubs) with $2500 in prize money which is being generously made available by Cabrini Health.
