On Sunday a successful social day of bowls was held at Tatura Bowls Club, where 20 triples teams participated.
All money raised will go to Tatura Hospital and the Anti-Cancer Council.
Through generous sponsorship by businesses within the community providing vouchers, goods and prizes, a tidy sum expected to be more than $1600 has been raised.
Tatura bowls organising member Adrian Barry thanked all those who donated so generously and made special mention of Unilever, which made a significant contribution.
On the score cards at the end of the day’s play there were three three-game winners, with a count back required to determine finishing positions.
Winning on 45 points was the team of Paul Kerrins, Pauline Moroney and Pat Anderson. Just two points behind was Steve ‘Bandit’ Baldwin and brothers Julian and Greg Robson. The husband-and-wife team of Joyce and Graeme Andrus combined with Graeme Andrews to come in third.
The fun day continued with the distribution of vouchers being given out generously for bowls activities held on the greens.
Nearest the spider winners were Max McElhinney from Rushworth and Dot Best from Tatura.
The nearest the ditch event was won by Ashley McDonald and Ray Rokahr.
Novice awards were provided to Greg Robson, young Rod Kirby (not the old bloke) and Holly Baldwin.
Early resting toucher was awarded to Peter Cohen and Sue Clement.
A raffle with voucher prizes was also generously supported. It was a wonderful day in perfect conditions and on bowling greens that were running a treat.
