Friday December 15 was our break-up day and our last playing day for 2017. Format for the day was mixed triples followed by a BBQ and twenty four bowlers turned up to enjoy the day.   The indoor BBQ area was decorated with bright Christmas fare and tables set with lace tablecloths which set the scene for a tasty lunch.   Lovely home made slices and cakes took the place of sweets and went down well with the tea and coffee.  Margy Mac dressed as Santa handed out presents to everyone and lucky door tickets were also drawn.   The last 100 club for the year was a bonus for Glenda first, Judy Hoenger second and Betty Charter took home third prize.   Results of the bowls played are:  B Burrows, M Coggan, P Wheaton defeated J Swanson, I Myhill, Brian Charter:  F Swanson, G Holmes, N Jemmeson defeated E Dougherty, H Radlingmayr, D Fuller:  F Lipscombe. Betty Charter, L Halloran defeated J Hoenger, S Stubbs, M Knight:  M King, J Lancaster, D Moloney defeated N Hiscox, F Smith, L Radlingmayr.   Winners of the bowls were Hookey, Enid and Dawn and runners-up were Brian Charter, Jan Swanson and Ila Myhill.  President Judy thanked all those people who contributed to the day making it a huge success, also thanked the two Chefs, Reg and David and to Marie and her helpers for organising everything and wished all a Merry Christmas.
