some winnable games coming up.
Championship Pairs
John & Graeme are having problems scheduling games due to many conflicting activities. If
you can play your next games by arrangement
with your opponents, it will be very helpful for
our Games Directors.
Do yourself a favour and get some coaching.
You will feel so happy when you start playing
the bowls you always thought you were capable of.
Until next time, take care and enjoy your bowls.

Played on Easter Saturday & Sunday, this is
always a very popular tournament. Our flamboyant visitors from Kiama have won for the
last 3 years. It is time that some locals stood
up and received those medallions and the
$2000 first prize money. There will be good
bowls played and you should have fun at the
same time.

Bowler of the Month
We all know our strengths and weaknesses of
our bowling abilities.
It continues to amaze me why we don’t take
more advantage of our 7 accredited coaches
to build on our strengths and rectify some of
our weaknesses. Unlike your local golf coach,
our coaching services are free.
