President and Patroness  Day was held on Friday 3rd June.  Although the weather was dull and showery, a great day was  held by all who attended.  President Carol and Patroness Beris wish to thank all members who worked so hard to make their day such a success.  A special thanks to Elaine Hopton, Shirley Sparke and their helpers for the delicious afternoon tea -  all home cooked.  You girls are a hard act to follow.   Three Life Members Joan Green, Ann Barnard and Shirley Heidke along with Joyce Binder, Hon Secretary of BDBA/Ladies , Jill Dunn, Jean Pershouse, Doris Munro and Pam Maitland joined us for afternoon tea.  It was such a pleasure having these “Golden Oldies” help Carol and Beris celebrate their special day. Patroness Beris, who has been Patroness for 23 years also addressed the ladies and thanked them for their attendance. The Lucky winners for the Visiting teams was the Past Presidents Team of D. Davidson,  M.  Nicol, P.Rush and Z. Watson and for our Home Team the winners were M. Peterson, J. Nikora. L. Lathouras and J. Burmeister.

As most members should be aware our Club  DOES NOT play at Moore Park on Tuesday 7th June as ATW  have withdrawn from the Bundaberg Shield Trophy.   However, we will be playing on the morning of the 8th June.  A car pool is being organised for this event.  Good luck Ladies.

Entries for the Armed Bowling Day are coming in now but we still can have a few more teams.  Mr.Andrew Orr from Ipswich will be playing and representing the Armed Bowling Ass. of Queensland.   This will be held on Sunday 19th June, $25 each and you will be provided with a light lunch and  morning and afternoon tea. The format has  been changed to 2 games of 15 ends  Greg Mallett has kindly taken on the position of umpire for the day.

Due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to put up competition for Friday 10th June.  I apologise for this.  However we will be having a social day so come along and enjoy a fun day.  I  will think of something different to surprise you all.  A Prize is guaranteed.
