A number of our bowlers have ventured onto the bottom green which is being utilised due to renovation on the top one and that will not be ready for a few weeks.
Barry Smith our bowls secretary is preparing the monthly program and our pennant selectors - Col Watson, Peter Holden and Hunter Payton - will very soon put together some teams to have an 'in-house' trial on the 30th of this month.
The Club is entering two grades in this year's pennant competition which commences on March 6. Thirty eight registered players (including women) have indicated that they will be available for the season and that will leave 14 as spares. An annual trial against Gloucester is also being organised.

Dally Hammond and Eric Pereira had a +12 victory over Jim and John Gillogly.
