Underbool Bowls Notes

Underbool Ladies Singles Club Championship has been won by Marie Cummings after a tight game with Colleen Gloster. There was some superb bowling from both ladies and after 29 ends Marie was the victor, 25 to 21. Congratulations Marie. Marie will now go on to play in the Champion of Champions Singles at Irymple on the 31st October and 1st of November. The Club wish her good bowling.

Saturday Pennant October 12th. Underbool played host to Euston and at lunch the score was rather positive for Underbool. However Euston came through to win 2 of the 3 rinks. Underbool 55/2 to Euston 64/10.

A special point of interest: It just so happened that three generations of the one family played on the same rink together on Saturday at Pennant. Ray Gloster, Robert Gloster and Cameron Gloster. A great effort.

Keep up the good bowling all.

Underbool Triples Star Day will be held next Sunday 20th October. There will be a great many visiting bowlers to the Underbool Bowls Club. Ladies are busily preparing food for the day, whilst other members are seeing to the green and surrounds.
