Today Saturday August 30th 2014, Kelly O’Dwyer helped launch The Malvern Bowling Club’s 2014-15 season by joining Men’s champion Denis Kilmartin and Ladies’ runner-up Suzanne Gibbs in rolling the first bowl of the season. Champion Helen Classon could not attend.
Tony Gamble was on hand earlier to provide coaching and advice although Kelly demonstrated quite clearly that none was necessary by placing her bowl very near the kitty.
It is always good to see our local MP, who also happens to be a social member of the club, finding the time to attend a fairly small, some may say even insignificant, local function and Tony expressed the appreciation of members in welcoming Kelly prior to the “First Bowl”.
It was most encouraging to see so many members attending, catching up after the winter break, meeting a couple of new members, and enjoying a game on the beautifully prepared green. Adrian Marston, our green keeper has excelled himself. A very special afternoon tea finished off the day and left everyone feeling happy and looking forward to the pennant season beginning September 23 (mid-week) and October 4 (Saturday).
