Replacement Truck- The Underbool Fire truck has been replaced by a Regional Spare, due to upgrades that need to be carried out on our Vehicle before this Fire Season. Please if you have time to take the truck for a run or familiarise yourself with its equipment as our truck will be fitted out similar to the spare. That is, inflating/deflating of tyres and suction hose locker and permanently connected suction, we may have this vehicle for up to 8 weeks.

Underbool Bowls

Congratulations to Marie Cummings who was in the winning team at the Ladies Vet Fours at Irymple last week.

It was the opening of the Sunraysia District Bowls on Sunday August 18th at Euston. John and Marie Cummings and Alan and Jen Stone represented Underbool Club and were runners/up on the day.

Midweek Pennant were defeated by Euston on Monday. Marie's side won but the team went down overall by 3. 44/47.

Next week Midweek Pennant will be playing Irymple at Euston.

Ladies please note there will be a Working Bee at the clubhouse on Thursday 29th August at 3.30pm.



Underbool Senior Citizen Club

The Underbool Senior Citizen Club AGM will be held on Friday September 6th at 1pm in the Underbool/Linga Hall. Please come along to see if we continue to function.  Linda McGlashan (MRCC Rep) will be in attendance.

After the AGM meeting we are having a social afternoon with afternoon tea (a plate appreciated). We feel something must be tried to welcome new residents to town plus ‘old` residents to get together. You don’t have to be a senior citizen – any age group are welcome to come along and join in function. If anyone has any ideas please bring forward. This has been a question “why can’t we have an afternoon to relax, have a talk and a cuppa”. (especially for the lonely people at home). Let’s give it a go!!

M. Prentice (Pres) E. Lockett (Sec)


Pink Lake Pantry Footy Competition

We are into the last week of the Annual Tipping Competition and it’s a tight race to the finish.

Ray Gloster has been leading most of the year but with a poor effort last week with only 3 winners, he was passed by Dot Brown with a great score of 8!!!  Noelene and Colleen A are hot on Raymond’s heels, only 1 point behind. As we head into this last week the top 3 places are as follows:

Dot Brown – 123,            Ray Gloster – 121            Noelene and Colleen A -  120.
