The first Championship event for the year was played last week.
The Minor Singles winner was Pat Minett with Claire Luland being the runner up. Congratulations Pat.
The Major Singles are open and will commence on February 19. Good luck to all those that enter.
It was a very social morning last Tuesday, February 5 when lots of chat and a working bee soon had our long awaited new lockers numbered and allocated. Members still requiring a locker please contact the match ladies.
There was some close competition for the day’s ‘most ends won’ prize among the pairs match and three triples games.
The winning team was the in-form Mavis Hardy, Aurelia Robinson and Dawn Kenny (skip) with twelve to six ends won against Maureen Findlay (1/2 game), Jenny Coulson and Annette Linney (skip). Jenny’s comment that their ‘score was not a reflection on the way we played’ was something most bowlers would appreciate. A good, fun morning.
Dawn Kenny was the lucky 50Club winner and Margaret Naylor collected the meat tray raffle, thanks to Rapley’s Meats. Members’ birthday this week is Margaret Naylor celebrating tomorrow.
Minor singles commences next Thursday, February 21.

F.S.C.D.W.B.A. held their Singles Championship last week. The Final was held at Dalmeny Bowling Club and the winner this year is Lorrie Birds from Tuross Head who defeated Sue Fahey from Tuross Head 28/18.
Congratulations Lorrie and the District wishes you well at the Regional play offs in March to be held at SMD.
It was warm, still and sticky, unusual weather for Dalmeny. Our saving grace was a little zephyr of breeze from the lake, a natural air-conditioning unit parked in front of the greens.
At this time of the year we had one rink of pennant practice and three rinks of social bowls. A good time was had by all.
Winners on the day, drawn by Dayna, were Olwyn Mayer, Barbara Pearce, Lyn Dunbar and Pat Barklem with Carole Sommerville, Gail Farrell and Barbara Wort as runners-up.
Lee Lewis scored a resting toucher and Lyn Dunbar was closest to the spider, with a little help from a friend. Congratulations to all bowlers.
The raffle prizes were taken home by lucky Pat Cameron, Lee Lewis and Gail Farrell.
Carnival planning for May 8, 9 and 10 is well under way as the first entries flow in.
