18th Dec 2019

Men’s Bowls

No Club Championships to report on this week. However there was a game played on Sunday December 15th and that was a Ham Day in memory of one of our long serving members Brian Vickery.
The Ham Day has a long tradition going back to Mr Tom Muldoon. Brian carried on the tradition after the passing of Mr Muldoon.
Paul Clark represents the Vickery family and carries the Ham Day forward.
There were 16 brave souls that ventured onto the greens. By brave I mean they faced heat and later in the afternoon smoke to remember Brian. The afternoon was won by Anthony Bull and Colleen Gouley with 2 wins plus 9 points. The runners up were David Wilcox and Debbie Sole with 1 win and 1 loss after playoffs.
Paul Clark thanked those that took part in the afternoon and presented the trophy’s.
On behalf of the Guyra Bowling Club I would like to express my thanks for the Vickery family’s continuation of this Day.
I have little else to report on apart to remind Bowlers of the Top Of the Fours that will take place Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th January, entrys are now open. So if you would like to take part in this carnival then contact the Bowling Club on (02) 6779 1499 during working hours.
In closing I would on behalf of my wife and myself wish all readers a very Happy Festive Season and a Happy New Year.

Vets Golf

It was great to see a good field of 16 vets compete in a 4 Ball last week coming up to Christmas. We played for hams and Turkey.
The winners with a great score of 48 was Pat Grills and Ken Fuller with the runner ups being Roger Cox and Mick Kirk on 46.
Nearest the pins went to Kim Shaw on the 7th, Len Stanley the 10th and Pat Grills on the 18th.
This week will be our Christmas party, playing for hams and other Christmas goodies with a Bar-b-q lunch and a few extras.
After this we will have a recess of a couple of Tuesdays, back on the 7th January.
See you next year,
A vet
