A FEW words from the selectors who have a job to perform for our club.
"Committing to our club and team. If nominating to play pennants, make a commitment that you will be available for the duration of the season, which includes playoffs.
"Accept the selector's decision as they are working for the benefit of the club and their decisions should not be taken personally. Often as not they are balancing personalities as well as bowling ability."
On Saturday last six selected teams travelled to Manning Point for the first of trial games and our fellows managed overall to get up by four shots with four rinks winning.
At home the remaining players also practiced and this has given the selectors some indication of the eventual makeup of the teams to enter the competition.
This coming Saturday Railway bring their players to our club and once again this will assist in determining the grades and position players will find themselves in at the commencement of competition in March.
