With our only bowls life member Ben Nowells rolling the jack, then two champions Robyn Moore and Andy LeFevre delivered a bowl each and then the games began.
After 2 games, one with 8 ends and the other with 6 ends, members then proceeded to head inside for afternoon tea, prizes were given to the best lead, second  and skip.
The club would like to thank all the sponsors who donated the prizes.
Kerry Kinnane then informed  the members that from this Tuesday from 3.30pm Anne Miles and Laureen Smith will be setting out drills for all club bowlers ,this is a great opportunity for all to improve skills.
Also, the club handed out a questionnaire for the general committee, match committee and selectors ,please answer these questions and return to the club as soon as possible(putting your names is optional), you can hand them in at the front receptionist or in a box in the bowls office.  Last of all the committee would like to thank Cathy Spinks, Carolyn Boston, Peter Lidgerwood, Shirly and Rob Hummel, Evan and Edna James and Robyn Balfour for all their hard work on opening day.
