A big weekend of bowls coming up with the Top of the Range fours carnival being played, with $5800 up for grabs the quality of the bowls will be outstanding.

Men’s Golf

On Sunday fourteen golfers travelled to Inverell to contest the NEDGA pennants. With 116 golfers from the New England district taking part, the scoring was high quality. The Guyra players did their best bringing home the Nett pennant with the team of Pat Grills, Mick Jackson, Bob Constance, Matt Jackson, Brock Reeves, Neil Paine and Harry Purvis. The scratch pennant was won by Armidale, with Glen Innes was runner up in both divisions. Next Sunday an individual stableford will be played for a club voucher.

Players who are interested to try their hand at the greatest game of all, are invited to roll up for a 10.30 am start. Phone the Club if you need more information. All welcome.

Vets Golf
Last week January 11, we had a good turnout of 15 players who enjoyed the much improved course. The work on the drainage, as well as a bit drier weather, has made a great change to the course and it is nice to be able to play both ends.
It was also good to have a couple of younger visitors play with us. We trust Mal Gaugroger and Peter Presnell enjoyed the day. A 4 ball Stableford was played with the winners Phil Devlin and Wal Chapman scoring 44 points. Runners up were Neil Paine and Paul Redden on 41.
Nearest the pins went to Neil Paine on the 7th, Ian Taylor the 10th and Mal Gaukroger chipped in on the 18th. Coming up next week on Thursday January 27 we will be travelling to Glen Innes for the first round of the Vets Pennants. Please get your names in early.
