It was a special day at Dalmeny Bowling Club, known as Past Presidents Day.
Past Presidents of the club, who were presented with orchid corsages by Gabby, banded together to organise and sponsor a Joe's Special competition followed by a barbeque lunch and a myriad of prizes.
Winners of the trophy were Judy Betts, Marg Carpenter and Ray Dunbar. Congratulations to this Triples team.
Terry Lewis and Judy Betts were closest to the spiders.
There were prizes for losing bowlers and prizes for winning bowlers drawn from a hat.
There were lucky door prizes and raffles galore, something for everyone. A great time was had by all.
Thanks go to Alan and Lionel for being barbeque chefs extrordinaire, ably supported by Pat Cameron and Barbara Wort who organised the catering.
The club looked terrific with flowers arranged by Gabby Cheel.
Many thanks to the seven past Presidents who made the day so special and for their past contributions to the club.
