Bowls

Welcome to pennant season, and already a few heads have been replaced by Pumpkins. This week sees a Double Header for the Boys in the Red Trousers, and after an excellient hit out last Sunday morning the selectors have come up with the following squads for this weekend: The Grade 4 Squad to Play West Dubbo at Home on Saturday & Dubbo Macquarie on Sunday is as follows:

Team 1: Budd Cape, Ben Clark, Eddie McPhee & Robert French.

Team 2: Jimmy Daley, Adam Jermyn, Terry McDonald & Robbie Stanford.

Team 3: Kevin Rider, Mark Hilder, John Edwards & Aaron Hutchison.

Both Games commence at 1.00pm Boys, so don't be late, Side manager Aaron Hutchison won't be a happy camper if he has to go looking for you.

The Grade 5 Squad will have Daniel Carnevale as the Side Manager & he would like to see all players assemble before 12.00noon in our Carpark for a quick getaway so we can be on time to play Dubbo City in Dubbo on Saturday at 1.00pm: The Squad for Saturday is as follows:

Team 1: Arnold Gillespie, Geoff Cape, Garry Raines, Don Sullivan.

Team 2: Racardo Stanford, Steve Riley, David McNair, James Daley.

This squad has one change for the Sunday morning match against Parkes Railway at home, which will commence at 10am sharp. Phil Harding will come into to the squad to replace Geoffrey Cape, who is unavailable due to work commitments.

Nominations for the A-grade singles close this Saturday night, with the draw to be conducted Sunday morning.

Trivia Night

Tuesday, February 19, the Narromine Bowling Club Conducted its 1st Trivia Night for 2020, with the Narromine 25 Club the designated worthy cause we were playing for. My thanks to the organisers, in particular Angela Hilder for running the night as the regular compere AKA yours truly was laid up in hosptal.

In first place were the Cats & Dogs, Bre-Tag ran second, with Something Simple in Third Spot. In a bit of poetic justice hard-working Angela Hilder cleaned them up in the 100 Club, while Mei from the restaurant won the raffle. $649.00 was raised on the night and hopefully next month I will be back to assist the troops for the Narromine Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, who are our nominated charity for Tuesday March 17.
