On the Green


Tin Can Bay men's

THE men's championships are underway with the singles down to the last eight players.

The next round is due for completion this Sunday, February 18.

Please remember it is play on or before the due date.

Last Wednesday the men's pairs winners were Ron Tracey and Tony Broom.

Runner-ups were Herb Dittman and Don Goode. On Saturday in the open pairs the winners were Tina and Barry Andersen with the runners-up Ron Tracey and Tony Broom.

Don't forget that the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month is nominated men's pairs and on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday it is club selected men's pairs.

Each Saturday is open 3 bowl pairs. We are now playing for a breakfast tray for the winners and cash for runner ups on both Saturday and Wednesday.

Sheets are on the board outside the clubhouse to nominate for a game. Also we now have a noticeboard just inside the club for all important announcements/notices.

The shade people tell me we are very close to having the new shade cloth erected which will be good in this heat.
