MONDAY September 3: Winners on shots up were Jack Harris, John Roche and Ron Dunk from runners up Brian Kelly, Wes Bond and Rod Roy with the resting toucher going to John Roche. The jackpot of a mere $36 was not won.
Thursday September 6: Winners on the lowest winning margin were Cheryl and Richard Goodridge and Roger Cheel with the resting toucher going to “the Pom”, Peter Townend. The jackpot of $148 was not won.
On a very sad note, we lost another long serving member on Sunday, with the passing of John Szoko. John passed away suddenly while having a roll-up on the green and will be sadly missed by all his bowling mates at the club. (See today’s classifieds for possible funeral arrangements).
